Ancestor Info
Name: Moses SparksRank: Unknown Company: I

Moses Sparks, son of Zerah and Luranna (Horn) Sparks, was born on February 22, 1847, in Butts County, Georgia, and was thus a six-year-old boy when he went to Alabama where he grew to manhood in the Boaz area of Sand Mountain in Marshall County. When he was fourteen years old, he enlisted in Company I of the 30th Regiment Alabama Infantry, Confederate States Army. After returning from military service, Moses Sparks was married to Susan Scott on November 8, 1868, by D. C. Williamson. She had been born on April 2, 1846, in Alabama. She and Moses had eight children before her death on April 2, 1888. She was buried in the Friendship Cemetery near the village of Arab. Shortly before the death of Susan, Moses moved west of Boaz to Brindlee Mountain, near the village of Arab. There he lived for the remainder of his life, and many of his descendants still live in the Guntersville-Arab area of Marshall County.
