SPARKS FAMILIES APPEARING ON THE CENSUS RECORDS OF SOUTH CAROLINA



In the pages that follow we are publishing the entries for Sparks families appearing on the 1800, 1810, 1820, and 1830 censuses of South Carolina. The record of Sparkses appearing on the 1790 census of South Carolina appeared in the June 1953 issue of the Quarterly (Vol. 1, No. 2, page 10). In the June 1971 issue (Vol. XIX, No. 2, Whole No. 74, pp. 1413-14) we published a record of Sparkses found on the 1840 census of South Carolina.

Readers are referred to page 2023 of the present issue of the Quarterly for an explanation regarding the genealogical information found in census records prior to that taken in 1850.

(Editor's Note: The first number following an individual's name is that of the page in the original census record preserved in the National Archives; the second number is for the line on the page occupied by the name and household enumeration of the individual.)

(Editor's Note: We know from other sources that the Alexander Sparks living in Darlington County was the same person as the Alex Sparks listed without household enumeration in Marlboro County. His home was in Darlington County but he owned slaves in Marlboro County. The Martha Sparks listed in Darlington County was his mother; his father, 9.1.1 Daniel Sparks, had died in 1810. See the Quarterly of December 1962, Vol. X, No. 4, Whole No. 40, pp. 692-3, for infromation on Alexander Sparks.)
