Gen.

They traveled as a caravan including the four whites and 91 Negroes, who walked 15 to 20 miles each day. Also, two Jerseys (cows), and four wagons, 13 horses and 14 mules including the Jack and Jenny.
On 20 Oct 1835, at their encampment three miles from Enfield, NC, Sarah wrote a letter to her Sister-in-law. “We are thus far on our journey to the far West. I find camping out much better than I expected. We sleep very comfortably in our tents. Our repast is very good, we have toast, coffee, ham, eggs for breakfast and we eat our dinner along the road as we can get it…..The roads are very rough so that it is impossible to read or work.” She road in a wagon. She commented on the Negroes, “Last night they were fiddling, tonight singing hymns, we travel from 15 to 20 miles a day and they sit up as late as if they were at home.”
On 9 Dec 1835 the caravan arrived in Columbus MS.

Colerain, Apl 12, 1850

Dear Sir:

Your letter dated Nov. 10th last was duly received, and in compliance with your request I availed myself of the first opportunity to give attention to is contents. Accordingly I wrote immediately the Clerk of Chowan Cty. Court, & sent the letter by a man going there, with a request for the Clerk to answer it forthwith. He sent me word that he would write me which kept me in suspence for sometime, and at last did not write to me. I then wrote a lawyer; & not hearing from him, I concluded I would go the next court myself, & try to acertain all about the matter. Accordingly I went over there this week and learned that your sister Rebecca BLOUNT is still living, but quite infirm & in bad health.

I will now say something of your other relatives & friends so far as my memory serves me.

I presume you have heard of the deaths of cousin Everitte (?) GARRETT as he has been dead 3 or 4 years. Aunt Cellia HOLLEY, Aunt Elizabth MCDOWELL & James HOLLEY son of Thomas are dead.

Indeed, all of the old stock, except Henry WARD, is dead. He is now living here engaged in Mercantile business. David O. ASKEW my brother-in-law is also dead. He died in Miss. last August. His family now lives there. There has been a great deal of sickness in this section of the country & and a great many deaths. Four of which has occurred in this place in about a month, one of whom was my little son 2 years old. I have a little daughter about 10 mos. old–a very fine healthy child. Hinderson WILSON of this place, son of James died last Feby.

There have been so many changes since you left this county that the present order of things & race of beings are so nearly (?) new to you that a history of them would not be very interesting I imagine. Suffice it to say that I think we are improving much as (?) & building. You would hardly recognize old Colerain now. So much in the place improved.

I am now engaged in fishing–but catching very few–I am so much hurried that I have not time to write more at present.

I hope to hear from you again soon, and then I will try to give you a letter of more interest.

In the mean time I remain
Very truly your fr’d

(?) contemplation (?) going South next summer or fall, & if I do, I will try to give you a call.

Do you know where cousin Martha GARRETT, or MILLER lives?
She married MILLER you know & moved away west.

Notes: I believe the parents of John BATEMAN of Pine Bluff, Arkansas were John BATEMAN and Miriam PERISHO of Perquimans County. In July 1830, Rebecca BATEMAN of Hertford, Perquimans County, sister of John BATEMAN of Pine Bluff, married John BLOUNT Esq. of Edenton, Chowan County. Parents of Mary Garrett, first wife of John Bateman of Pine Bluff, were David and Mary Garrett of Bertie. Rich Borges

based of e-mail from Kendall Sparkman Jan 2001 and June 2002

Stewart County, Tennessee, records found recently are perhaps finally shedding some more definitive evidence on the real William Reed Sparkman, son of Jesse Sparkman and Rebecca Reed and grandson of Capt. William Sparkman. William R. Sparkman relocated to Stewart Co. ca. 1808-09, just in time to be very close to the epicenters of the New Madrid earthquake of 1812. http://asms.k12.ar.us/armem/richards/index.htm

When he initially situated himself along the banks of Saline Creek across the Trigg Co., KY/Stewart Co., TN state line, he was not, as later Trigg Co. tax rolls indicate, the prior owner of hundreds of Bertie acres reduced to a 100 acre farm. Rather, he acquired at least 640 acres in Stewart (vesting deed could not be located among Stewart deed books) as well as his KY holdings. It appears, in fact, that it was the New Madrid earthquake itself that was actually an economic undoing for William R., as the 640 acres were sold in 1814 for unpaid taxes for the year 1812 (for less money in the years just after the quakes than the taxes and interest owed). It is also interesting to note that Stewart County court records for 1812 do not appear to have been maintained, and equally interesting to speculate how much the earthquake may have disrupted William R.’s life.

Unfortunately, the Stewart Co. records found do nothing to link William R. Sparkman to what certainly appears to be his son in neighboring Caldwell County, KY, William Sparkman, but, although we already guessed it due to his proximity on Saline Creek, do establish links to son Hugh H. Sparkman, who appears to be the ancestor of the Randolph Co., AR, Sparkmans. The records also make clear that Henry Sparkman and Hugh H. Sparkman are not the same person, but brothers (Henry being the eldest), which leaves me to again speculate that Hugh H. Sparkman may actually be Hugh Hyman Sparkman, named for William R.’s Bertie Co. uncle.

Taking account of census records, if we have properly identified William Reed Sparkman, we appear to be looking at the following sons, among others:

1. William Sparkman of Caldwell Co., KY, b. ca. 1785, Bertie Co., NC.
This son is reflected in the 1790 census, but would be listed as under 10 in the 1800 census.

2. Ward Sparkman, b. ca. 1790, Bertie Co., NC. Ward, bearing his mother Pheraby Ward’s surname, appears likely to be William Reed’s son, but I suspect Ward never migrated west with his family. We need more Bertie deed and other records to confirm. The only record I have found on him is the 1830 census where he is reflected as being between 40-50. Ward does not appear to have had any children or surviving children. Ward would be reflected as under 10 in the 1800 census.

3. Henry Sparkman, b. 1794 or after (?), Bertie Co., NC. In 1811, Henry is designated to work on a road. If he is in William R.’s household in 1820, his age is designated 20-26.

4. Hugh H. Sparkman, b. 1794-1797, Bertie Co., NC. Hugh is designated
to work on a road in 1817. His census age in 1820 is 20-26, and he has
a baffling assortment of individuals in his household.

I”ve signed your guestbook. But I wanted to thank you for putting this info on the Web for everyone to find and use. You are quite a researcher! Imagine my delight when I googled “Caroline Luten” and found your web page. She is my gr-grandmother through her son William Oscar Woolley. I have a good deal of info on Caroline (Carrie) and her mother Mary. But I knew very little about her father’s family since he died so early. You have filled in a large gap for me.FYI – Mary Knight Luten died on 7 May 1910 in New Orleans, a resident of St. Mary Asylum, a benevolent institution for destitute widows and orphans. Although the death certificate lists her as Mary Martin Luten, I’m sure it is the correct person because she and her daughter Emily Luten Wilson are listed together as residents of St. Mary’s in the 1910 Census.Thanks for being so generous with your terrific research!Suzy (Suzanne Woolley) Smith

Dear Aunt Sally: Do you recall the attorney Henry Benjamin Hardy, son of Humphrey Hill Hardy? He’s mentioned by Major Moore in discussing members of the local bar in the 1850s. Also, he and his wife Josephine and infant children show up in the records for St. Thomas Church, Windsor at the same time. Well, I discovered on my last afternoon in Jackson that they are buried at the Church of the Saviour. Directly behind the Calvert plot is a large magnolia grave with six tombstones under it. They are extremely weathered. I could make out H. B. Hardy, Josephine Hardy and Julia W. Hardy. There were two children’s stones that I could not make out. The one legible stone was another H. B. Hardy, who is plainly their son who married Miss Mabel Picard. She’s buried all the way across the cemetery with her folks. I looked in Henry Lewis’ transcription of the parish register this morning. NONE of them them are in there except Miss Mabel. This doesn’t surprise me as I’ve found other instances of folks we know are definately buried there but not in the book. Love, James

Notes from James:
Josephine E. Hardy is listed as a communicant in 1849.

Leonora C. Hardy to John W. Saunders 1854

Julia Hardy Nov. 28, 1853

I also discovered that Miss Mabel Picard of the Church
of the Saviour in Jackson married Henry Benjamin
Hardy. I think this was in the 1870s or 1880s.
Consequently this Mr. Hardy must be a son or nephew of
the one who was the attorney in Windsor in the 1850s.

e-mail from Becky Dozier

Sally, he (Thomas Benjamin Hardy) married Caroline (Carrie) Elizabeth MILES on 17 Nov 1847 in Northampton Co., NC . I have the Miles Bible which has this date in it.


I found them on the census in Bertie Co., NC, but I didn’t find Caroline in 1880. I also located one children’s marriage in Northampton, but none of the other children’s records. Do you know anything about their children and who they married or what happened to them?


Caroline married Thomas B. Hardy on 17 Nov 1847 in Northampton Co, NC
Her brother Samuel Miles was a witness to this marriage


Caroline was called “Carrie” and in a deed dated 28 Sept 1873, CARRIE sold to her brother William E. Miles a certain parcel of land known as “the residence of the late William Miles, dec’d.”


Caroline and her family were living in BERTIE CO, NC in 1850, 1860 & 1870

Here is what I found on William Augustus Hardy and his family.
1870 US Federal Census, Lamourie, Rapides, LA
1880 US Federal Census, Lamourie, Rapides, LA
In both census records he is listed as single but in the 1880 record there are two young women living with him and are named “sister”. They are
Ida Hardy
Margaret (Maggie) Hardy.

Ida and Maggie are supposedly the children of Humphrey H. Hardy and his second wife Martha Bynum Simmons which would make Ida and Maggie half-sister to William Augustus Hardy. when Ida Hardy Pegram died in Forsyth County, NC in 1942 her death certificate names Humphrey Hardy and Martha Bynum as her parents.
Maggie Hardy married George S. West and they lived their lives out in Norfolk, VA.

In the 1870 census record (Bertie Co., NC) I find Ida and Maggie Hardy living with another half sibling: James Ward Hardy and M. Rebecca (Simmons) Hardy. Rebecca, wife of James Ward Hardy, was the dau. of Martha Bynum Simmons. So James married his step-sister.

One thought on “Ward – Hill grandchildren: 2nd page”

  1. Have you done a DNA test through and of these companies? I am ISO information to my 3X g grandfather Charlie Ward abt 1800- abt 1890. Only true documentation I have on him and family is his wife was Jane; they lived in Sweetwater, Monroe County, Tennessee. My grandfather, Charles S Ward who passed away in 2005 from Monroe County, Tennessee told me he never knew him but family says Jane was Cherokee. I can’t seem to find who his father was. Wondered if you or someone may have knowledge of that family it would be greatly appreciated? I have done the DNA both through Ancestry and 23andme.
