The Sparlins are probably descended from Curtis Sparlin and wife Judy Blankenship.He born 1826 Ohio, she born 1833 Tennessee.Their sons are John Wesley, Isom and Andrew, all born in MO. From my notes:Curtis was the eldest of twenty-one children of Andrew and Elizabeth. Andrew, from Holmes County, Ohio, gave Lost Creek its name when he got lost and had to spend the night on the creek while trying to reach his family in Arkansas. (source not recorded) Buzzard & Crabtree are common names in that area from the mid 1800s. I'm an Adams but can't identify the two in your post and don't believe they are my relatives.
