The references to the original marriage license books is shown, but most of these books reveal no more information than is contained in the card index. The State Record of Marriages, which covered only the years 1865-67, does give more information and those data have been added in the following list.

Moses Sparks married Mary Armstrong on May 16, 1796.

The Washington County marriage register at the Hall of Records is a microfilm copy of a negative photostat which is very difficult to read. There is no index to this volume and it has not been searched for Sparks marriages. It appears that many of the Maryland counties do not have marriage records, or that they are preserved for only very short periods.

SOME ADDITIONAL MARRIAGE RECORDS OF PERSONS NAMED SPARKS
RECORDED IN QUEEN ANNES COUNTY, MARYLAND


Pages 4183-4188 of the September 1993 issue of the Quarterly, Whole No. 163, contain a compilation of the marriages of persons named Sparks in Queen Annes County, Maryland, during the period 1775-1875. The compilation was based upon records from several different sources, and it was not intended to be thought of as complete.

Recently, a member of the Association, Peter G.Thyrre, Ardsley, New York, sent us a list of nearly three dozen additional marriages of persons named Sparks in Queen Annes County during this same period of time. In the main, these additional names were taken from "Queen Annes County, Maryland, Marriage licenses, 1817-1858" compiled by Raymond B.and Sara Sethdark, 1963. We are pleased to add these names to the earlier list.
