SPARKS FAMILIES IN KENTUCKY - - 1850 CENSUS

by Paul E. Sparks



(Editors Note: Dr. Paul E. Sparks, President of The Sparks Family Association, has made a thorough search of the entire 1850 census of the state of Kentucky and has copied the data given for each person named Sparks. This has been a tremendous undertaking, for in 1850 Kentucky was the eighth largest state in the Union, with a total population of 982,405. Of these persons, 761,413 were white, 10,011 were free blacks, and 210,981 were slaves.

At the time the 1850 census was taken, Kentucky was divided into one hundred counties. The map of Kentucky which accompanies this article was drawn in 1847 and shows the county boundaries as they existed at that time. by 1850 only one change had been made--in 1848 Taylor County was cut off from Greene County. Dr. Sparks has searched the 1850 census of each of these one hundred counties and has found that Sparks families were living in the following thirty-six: Adair, Boone, Bourbon, Breathitt, Caldwell, Calloway, Carter, Daviess, Estiil, Fayette, Gallatin, Greenup, Hardin, Harlan, Harrison, Henderson, Henry, Hopkins, Jefferson, Jessamine, Johnson, Knox, Laureb, Lawrence, Lewis, Livingston, McCracken, Mason, Morgan, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen, Pendleton, Pike, Spencer, and Trimble. Since 1850, twenty new counties have been formed in Kentucky by dividing some of the older counties.

As has been stated before in the Quarterly , the 1850 census is of particular interest to the genealogist for it was the first Federal census which listed every member of every household (except slave) by name. Besides his name, the census taker listed also each person s age, birthplace, and sex. For those who were bread-winners, the census taker also noted the occupation and the value of property. (The numbers given beneath the page numbers in the following list stand for household and family and were simply assigned by the census taker as he progressed from one house to the next. They are useful in indicating who lived next door to or near a given family.

Because over twenty pages will be required to list all the Sparks families found by Dr. Sparks in the 1850 census of Kentucky, only the first installment can be given in this issue of the Quarterly the list will be continued in the June issue.)

SPARKSES LISTED ON THE 1850 CENSUS OF OWSLEY COUNTY, KENTUCKY

(Editors Note: Beginning in the March 1957 issue of the Quarterly (Vol. V, Whole No. 17, p. 205) and ending in the Sep 1957 issue (Vol. V, Whole No. 19, page 239) we published the records of Sparks families appearing on the 1850 census of the State of Kentucky. Through an oversight, we failed to include a listing of the Sparks families living in Owsley County in 1850. Following are those families, copied by Dr. Paul E. Sparks.)

(This completes the 1850 census of all the 100 counties of Kentucky. After 1850, Kentucky added 20 more counties by subdividing some of the old counties. Any county in existence in 1850 in Kentucky has been searched, and if it has not been included in this list it is because there were no Sparkses listed. P.E.S.)

ADDITIONS TO THE 1850 CENSUS OF KENTUCKY

(Editors Note: The listings of all persons named SPARKS on the 1850 census of Kentucky were published several years ago in the March, June, and Sep issues for 1957, Vol. V, Nos. 1, 2, & 3, Whole Nos. 17, 18, & 19, respectively. Since that time, however, this census has been reviewed and the following persons named SPARKS have been found in addition to those listed earlier.

The 1850 census was the first Federal census which listed every member of a household (except slaves) by name. Beside each name, the census taker also listed the person's age, sex, and birthplace, and for those who were breadwinners the occupation was given as well as the value of real estate owned. The numbers given beneath the page numbers were assigned by the census taker as he went from house to house and thus they are useful in determining who lived "next door” to someone else.)
