Birth: Feb. 14, 1861
Kentucky, USA
Death: Sep. 16, 1945
Lake City
Anderson County
Tennessee, USA

Thomas was the son of Napoleon Bonaparte Sprinkles & Dollie Jane Greenlee.

His first name is curious. The 1880 census shows him as what looks like Doeter T. His death certificate gives his name as Doct Thomas. Some have suggested his first name was Doctor. In any event, he used the name Thomas or Tom.

Note that Tom's surname is also found with several spelling variations. Most records show the Sprinkles spelling, but other spellings include Sprinkle, Sprinkel and Sprankle.

Note also that although his tombstone shows his date of birth as 14 Feb 1861, that year may not be correct. He was enumerated as age 10 on the 1880 census, suggesting he was born around 1870. The 1900 census shows he was born Mar 1867, and 1867 meshes with his age on the 1910 census. He was more than likely born later than 1861, probably 1867-1870.

Tom married Nancy Ann Rutherford, 20 Jul 1890, Campbell Co., KY.

They had two chidren: Otis & Olley Alice (Adkins, Cross).
