|Bio and Links|
Pictured: Cathy, hubby, & kids (now grown), pose for their 1st family photo, in Summer 2001. The adoption became finalized in early 2002.|
Bio: The Sparks family lives on the East side of Nashville, in a 70+ y/o Tudor Revival cottage. Hubs is a freelance writer, columnist, actor, & doctoral student, aside from his day job. Our oldest son, who has special needs, is a talented artist, who also enjoys mainstream & special needs fellowships, camp, sports, music, is gearing up for appropriate independence, as a young adult. To that end, he'll be heading to a post-secondary school w/ dorms, after he vacates his tiny apartment at home. (All aboard the EMPTY NEST EXPRESS---woo-hoo!) Our daughter attends college in the Midwest, & spent much of her Freshman year in Siberia, earning a 3.7 gpa! The youngest lives in another state, enjoying blue collar work, gaming, & the hospitality of his girlfriend's family. I (Cathy) enjoy genealogy, graphic design, travel, & entertaining. I'm is currently studying to become certified in counseling & life coaching. We attend Mosaic Nashville, a downtown church, loosely affiliated w/ the So. Baptist denomination, which also offers community-based Bible study groups throughout town.

NOTE: This is primarily my side of the family, direct lineage. In a couple of instances, the surnamed family is related by marriage, & is very closely allied with the family. Our children are adopted, & their line is noted as Af. Am.. We consider their family tree, of which little is, thus far, known, to be grafted onto ours. I am happy to collaborate, or to share any family history information I find.

|John Sheets||RE: Cousin?|
My father's family was from West Virginia and operated a Sheets family farm there, as well as a Hudson family farm. That was circa the 1930's and 40's.
|John & Retta Waggoner||RE: Matilda Smith Photo|
Cathy - Matilda is the sister to my wife's grandfather John Bransford Matthews. Looks like you are related.
|jwright||RE: John Anderson Wright|
I took several photos in Rest Haven including one at the entrance to the cemetery, but do not have any records of taking a photo of John Anderson Wright. I do not believe that we are related as my Wright ancestors lived in Shelby County,IN starting around 1850 and origninated from England before that time.

|jwright||RE: John Anderson Wright|
I have taken over 6000 photos in different states as well as those in Indiana. I have taken those with the Wright surname several times when I am not related (at least I do not know of any connections). Where did I take John Anderson Wright's photo?

|Gordon Edwards||Mary Blair|
I am working on your request for Mary Blair at Salem Cemetery in Washington County, TN - do you know if she was married and what her husband's name might have been? Thanks, G
|JoAnn Stephens Graham||Margaret Robbins Ramsey|
I can't add her to mother and father since I did not make her memorial. You will need to contact the owner of her memorial to do that.
|Cindy Womble Billman||RE: Albert P. Robbins|
Both links you provided were for Albert - so I have no idea who his parents were - the best way is to click on his Edit button and provide me with is parents memorial numbers. Thanks!
