Eleanor's maiden name appears as "Spark" or "Sport" on her son, Charles' death certificate. It also indicates she was born in Locke, Cayuga, New York. Possibly Samuel Sparks or Amos Sparks, counted on the census in Locke, in 1820. Both of their households had a young girl who could have been Eleanor in them.


Eleanor Sparks & Levi Sherman were the parents of my ancestor,
