I have interesting info on Iradel Swan Sparrow if you would like
to have it.Please email or post on message board
Is there a record of Isaac's first wife,Susan's death?
No record of Susan Sugg Sparrow's death has come to light. It is not mentioned in Isaac Sparrow's bible.
If you should find such a record, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know.
Thank you for checking on Susan Sugg Sparrow. I would
like to ask if anyone knows the burial sites of Isaac Sparrow
and wife,Ann Jane Baker Benton . I live in Goldsboro,N.C.
and I would like to visit this gravesiteand other Sparrow
family members(most especially,Iredel Sparrow) if there
location is known.
One possibility for Susan Sugg is that she may be the daughter of Micajah Sugg who was a neighbor of Isaac Sparrow in the 1840 Lenoir County Census.
The Ira D. Sparrow Cemetery is located just off of Eric Sparrow Road, which runs parallel to and just west of Hwy 11 at Deep Run. I helped Joyce Sparrow Taylor place a monument at this cemetery in December 2002 identifying it as the Ira and Frances Stroud Sparrow Cemetery. In return for my help, Joyce allowed me to memorialize Patrick Sparrow, the progenitor of the Lenoir County Sparrows, on the back side of this monument.
Isaac and Jane Sparrow are buried in the Noble Plantation Cemetery, which is in a field NW of the intersections of SR 1120 ("Nobles Mill Road") and SR 1121 ("Davis Mill Road") in Pink Hill Township, southern Lenoir County. In December 2002 my brother John Sparrow and I replaced Isaac's and Jane's wooden gravemarkers with granite markers. We are having the wooden markers conserved and hope to place them in the permanent collection of Heritage Place at Lenoir Community College in Kinston for future generations to be able to see.
I'd be grateful for your information on Ira D. Sparrow, son of Isaac Sparrow, and I'll be pleased to reimburse you for any costs in sending it to me -- 307 Queen Anne's Road, Greenville, NC 27858. Many thanks, KS
I will be happy to mail the info to you at no cost. I will
print a copy of the info and a copy of the death certificate
of Willie Ira Millard to you tomorrow.
I amlooking for the Nobles Cemetery(African American)is this the one and the same? Can anyone tell me where it is located in Pinkhill?
The cemetery, Nobles, mentioned here is located at the old Nobles Mill, off Nobles Mill road in Deep Run,NC. Isaac Sparrow was my Great Grandfather and is buried there next to his wife Anne Jane. I have never heard of this cemetery being African American. Hope you find what you are looking for.
