PERSONS NAMED SPARKS<br>APPEARING ON THE FEDERAL CENSUSES OF MAINE<br>IN 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, AND 1850<br>Introductory Note


<hr> <p>Here we present a record of the persons named Sparks (Spark, Sparkes) who appeared on federal census records from 1810 through 1850 in the state of Maine. Readers interested in these families may wish to refer to the Quarterly of March 1979 (Whole No. 105) and September 1979 (Whole No. 107) in which we published rather extensive records pertaining to certain Sparks families from Maine.</p> <p>As we have reminded our readers before, federal census records prior to the census taken in 1850 contain only the names of the heads of households. The members of each household were then enumerated following the name of the head according to age groupings, with males separated from females. The person heading the household was included in the enumeration. We know that mistakes were sometimes made in calculating ages, and it should also be kept in mind that the enumeration of household members included more than family in some instances. Anyone besides family members living in a household, whether a hired man, a roomer, or a neighbor child serving as an apprentice, for example, was enumerated as a member of that household.<br> The 1850 census was the first to include the name, with age, place of birth, occupation (if any), and value of real estate owned (if any) of each person (except slaves) found by the census taker in his district.</p> <p>A number was assigned by the census taker to each dwelling house that he visited and another to each. family living in that house, although some census takers were more careful in this calculation than others. These numbers are useful in suggesting how close to each other two families may have lived, since the numbers were assigned as the census taker progressed. In copying the entries for Sparkses from the 1850 census of Maine, beginning on page 3247, we have included the names of all members of each household where a Sparks appears. This information often provides a clue for identifying family relationships even though such relationships were not given on the 1850 census.</p> <table align="center" width="75%" border=1> <tr> <th
