Looking for Sparrows of Southern Indiana and throughout Oklahoma

Query by Rosemarie44

I have been on the trail of my great-great grandparents, John and Jane Sparrow. I have found Jane as a widow,living in Troy, Indiana, USA, in 1870. She and John were both from England. A story passed down, was that John and his brother [name unknown] went in different directions when their ship landed and they never heard from each other after that. They had one son that I am aware of = George Sparrow. Another story is that he was born aboard ship, John looked at the puny infant and said, name him George, neither of them are worth a darn.

I do know that their son George Sparrow, served in the Civil War, was a prisoner at Andersonville Prison, survived; returned to Perry County, Indiana, and later moved to the Noble County area of Oklahoma. 3 of his sons were among the names on the White Buffalo hide at the Enid, Oklahoma, Museum, that listed all of the original members of the Cowboys' Association, and attended the reunions for many years.
