SPARKS HOUSEHOLDS APPEARING ON THE
1840 CENSUS OF IOWA TERRITORY



Iowa became a state in 1846; from 1838 until 1846 it had been organized as a Territory. When a census of Iowa Territory was taken in 1840, one household headed by a person named Sparks was found. That individual is shown below. For an explanation of the 1840 census, see page 3329 of the present issue of the Quarterly. A record of persons named Sparks (Sparkes and Sparks) found on the 1850 census of Iowa appeared in the Quarterly of December 1984 (Vol. XXXII, No. 4, Whole No. 128, pp. 2690-94). Earlier, in the June 1964 issue of the Quarterly, we published an incomplete record of Sparkses found on the 1850 census of Iowa - - interested readers, however, should refer to the corrected record published in Dec, 1984.
