INDEX OF DEATHS IN TEXAS, 1903-1940

by Gerald H. Sparks



[We are indebted to Gerald H. Sparks, Maj., USAF Ret,, P.O. Box 443, Runge, Texas, 78151, for recording for us the deaths of persons named Sparks between 1903 and 1973 that occurred in Texas, as registered at the Texas State Library. Maj. Sparks has performed the further service of arranging these by county. Because our editorial policy in publishing The Sparks Quarterly is to limit our inclusion to persons born before about 1900, we include here only those in dividuals who died between 1903 and 1940, believing that most of these Sparkses were probably born before 1900. We shall be glad to respond, however, to any query from a reader seeking information on Sparks deaths in Texas from 1940 to 1973, as recorded by Maj. Sparks.]

INDEX OF SPARKS DEATHS IN TEXAS, 1903-1940

Compiled by Gerald H. Sparks


[In the Quarterly of September 1992, Whole No. 159, on page 3977, we began the listing of deaths of persons named Sparks registered at the Texas State Library between 1903 and 1940. In that issue, we included the following coun­Lies in which deaths of Sparkses were recorded between these two dates: Ander­son, Angelina, Archer, Bosque, Bowie, Brazoria, and Brazos. We continued this listing in the March 1993 issue, Whole No. 161, beginning on page 4095. En this latter listing, we included the following counties: Brown, Burleson, Burnet, Caldwell, Cameron, Carson, Cass, Castro, Cherokee, Clay, Coke, Cole­nan, Collingsworth, Collin, Dallas, Denton, Dewitt, Dickens, Dimmit, Eastland, Ellis, El Paso, Erath, Floyd, Foard, Fort Bend, Freestone, Galveston, Grayson, Gregg, Grimes, Hale, Hall, Hamilton, Hansford, Hardeman, Harris, Harrison, and Hill. We now continue this listing. We are indebted to Gerald H. Sparks, VIaj., USAF Ret., P.O. Box 443, Runge, Texas 78151, for copying for us all Sparks deaths recorded at the Texas State Library from 1903 to 1973, and for arranging these by county. Here we list only those who died between 1903 and 1940, on the assumption that most of these individuals were probably born prior to about 1900. We shall be glad to check the complete list for any member interested in a Sparks death after 1940 but before 1973.]
