Hi List,

This is my first post to the Hames list. Sarah Hames bc 1809, daft 1860 married William Sprouse, b 1798, d 10 Jul 1881. I believe William is my 2nd great grandfather but have no proof. I found this list of their children on Rootsweb;

Henry Clay, Betsey, Polly, Lydia, Frances, Eliza, Gustyann and Scintha.

It is my belief that the first child of William and Sarah was not Henry but John Sprouse b Aug 1828. I have examined all the Sprouse families listed in the 1840 census for Union Co. and only William had a male child of the correct age to have been my John Sprouse. In 1850 William and Sarah Sprouse's oldest child living at home is listed as Henry, age 19. In 1850
John Sprouse, age 22, was working as a laborer in Union Co. The ages would work out just right.

A posting on the Sprouse Family Genealogy Forum at by a Tammy Guinn, dated 23 Feb. 2001 said:

"Sarah Hames and William Sprouse are buried at Fosters Chapel Methodist Church in Pea Ridge area in Union County, SC. They had 8 children: John,Henry, Liza, Betsy, Synthis, Lemuel, Nancy and Frances." I sent Tammy an
e-mail but the address was no good.

I believe William Sprouse and Sarah Hames Sprouse are my 2nd great grandparents. John Sprouse is my great grandfather. If anyone has proof or information that John Sprouse is William and Sarah's son, please contact me.
