SARAH SPARKS - 1812-1885

Tidbits I have picked up along the way about Sarah Sparks Bound:

Sarah Sparks was born 4 December 1812 in Summit, Schoharie Co., NY., a daughter of Thomas Sparks and Mary Howe.

Sarah Sparks and Job Bound, Sr. were married according the the Sparks Family records in 1836 in Summit, Schoharie Co., NY. I do believe this year may be in error as they have children born before that year.

Sarah Sparks Bound died on 17 March, 1885 in Plainfield, Waushara Co., WI. She is buried in the Plainfield Cemetery, Plainfield, Waushara Co., WI.

Trancription of the Obituary of Sarah Sparks Bound:

Plainfield Sun, April 3, 1885, page 5, column 4: DIED Bound - At her residence in West Plainfield, Wis., on Tuesday, March 17, 1885, Mrs. Job Bound, aged 73 years.

Mrs. Bound was born in the state of New York in 1812, and came to Wisconsin in 1854. She leaves an aged husband and three sons to mourn her loss. Her life was one of good words and deeds, and her reward is sure.
