"On the cover of one of the earliest issues of The Sparks Quart erly
(that for December 1956, Whole No. 16), we published a photograph o f a "Tree-
of-Life Quilt" made many years earlier. It was comprised of thirty " sewing
blocks," on each of which were stitched scraps of figured cloth in "c razy-
quilt" fashion, along with names, with an occasional date. Researc h proved
that the Sparks names belonged to the family of William (192) and Rho da
(Pennington) (227) Sparks of North Carolina, Virgina, and Tennessee ( the
parents of Rachel's husband, William, Jr.). We have also learned tha t the
numerous persons named Lee were of the family of Augustine and Rache l (Nichols)
Lee, (On the quilt "Augustine" is spelled "Augusta," while some sour ces call
him Agustus.) The photograph used in 1956 had been provided by Mrs . Meryln
Houck of Stillwater, Oklahoma. She told us that a daughter of August ine
and Rachel Lee had been Rachel Lee, named for her mother, and she ha d been
married to William Sparks, Jr., a son of William and Rhoda Sparks, o n March 30,
1851 in White County, Tennessee. At that time, the quilt was owned b y Mrs.
"Today, this family heirloom is owned by Ruth Sparks Hale, Rt. 2 , Box
178, Sparta, Tennessee (38583). Through Mrs. Hale, we now know who i t was
that actually made the quilt -- she was Rachel Elina (Lee) Sparks, da ughter
of Augustine and Rachel (Nichols) Lee, whose husband was William Spar ks, Jr.
Rachel had been born on February 6, 1832, in White County, Tennessee , the part
that is now Putnam County; she died on June 6, 1906, also in Putnam C ounty.
William Sparks, Jr., son of William and Rhoda (Pennington) Sparks, wa s born
April 3, 1828, in Tennessee, and died on March 20, 1919.
"Mrs. Hale has also provided us the photograph of William, Jr. a nd Rachel
E. (Lee) Sparks appearing on the cover of this issue (Whole No. 173 , March
1996) of the Quarterly." She reports that this was taken "from an en larged
picture a cousin brought to one of our Sparks reunions."
