Marriage records of St. James's Church at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which date from 1755, were published in 1897 by William Henry Egle in his "Notes and Queries, Historical and Genealogical." Among the marriages recorded was that of HENRY SPARK, JR. and RACHEL LANDENBERGER, dated January 11, 1792. From a note appearing with this record, it seems probable that this marriage, while performed by the pastor of St. James's Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, actually took place in Philadelphia. Other than the marriage of William Sparks and Martha Moore on March 12, 1761, noted on page 3249 of the June 1988 Quarterly, there are no other Sparks (Spark, Sparkes) marriages recorded in the Lancaster church.
