Descendants Of Joseph Sparks

Son Of William Sparks, Sr. (1640-1709)

In response to a number of requests for information on descendants of William Sparks, Sr, particularly as Joseph Sparks, Sr. and Levi Sparks relationships are concerned, I am presenting here a chart showing these relationships. Interest seemed to involve the descendants of Joseph, son of William, Sr., Joseph's son, Solomon and Levi Sparks, grandson of Solomon.

I present the chart below as the best representation of these relationships that I have found. Much, of it comes from the Sparks Quarterlies, but some from other submitters. I wouldn't stake my life on it being totally accurate, so if you have any documented evidence to the contrary please let me know. Dates are always suspect. Maybe these people are your ancestors and you are privy to Bible or other birth records. If so, let's share it with others.
