ADDITIONS TO THE ALBERT CYRUS SPARKS FAMILY RECORD



In the Dec, 1957, issue of The Sparks Quarterly Whole No. 20, pp. 264-66, appeared a query submitted by Mr. Milby Porter regarding the ancestors of Albert Cyrus Sparks (1830-1915). Mrs. Porter provided information on the descendants of Albert Cyrus Sparks, but was unable to give detailed information on the children of his eldest daughter, Hester Ann (Sparks) Gross. Mrs. Porter has since learned from her cousin, Jesse Norman Gross, that Hester Ann and her husband, Francis Marion Gross, were the parents of the following children: (Correction from Queries-020)

32.1.1.1 Frankie May Gross, born April 28, 1878; died April 15, 1881, presumably in Newton County, Missouri.
32.1.1.2 Jesse Norman Gross, born Nov 12, 1881, in Newton County, Missouri.
32.1.1.3 Charles Orville Gross, born March 22, 1887, at Fort Scott, Kansas; died Nov 24, 1936, at Fort Scott, Kansas.
32.1.1.4 Nellie Matilda Gross, born January 30, 1895, at Fort Scott, Kansas.
