Looking for SPARKMAN family

Journal by Sally_Sparkman

I am looking for the Sparkman family members from the three brother's families who originally settled in Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas. I have a number of dots connected, but am still missing quite a few as well, and would love to get in touch with my family.

My great grandfather was Jerry Sparkman who lived and died in Corsicana, Texas (passing about 1924 or so). He was married to Samantha Ferguson (sister of the Texas Governor, Pa Ferguson). Their daughter, Gertrude Sparkman, married one of her first cousins from the Oklahoma branch who was in politics. Their son, Irvey, was my grandfather. His only child was my father, William Jerry Sparkman.

I know that I have about a zillion cousins spread throughout the South, and probably the country, but I don't know any of them or how to reach them, so would appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Thank you for your help,
Sally (Erin Margaret) Sparkman

Dear Sally, Welcome. Lots of sites for you to check, but here are some main ones:-

SPARKMAN Family Genealogy Forum

SPARKMAN Family History & Genealogy Message Board

SPARKMAN genealogy queries at CousinConnect

SPARKMAN genealogy queries at Distantcousin.com

SPARKMAN Family Crest and Name History

Put your family tree online say at Geni. Once there it will ask you to begin your tree - free and absolutely marvellous website. If you have a GEDCOM file you may upload it to the site, otherwise you will have to type each part of your tree in from scratch.

Best wishes,
Editor.
