  • Notes 
    • !Marshall 0017, Pg. 191; Sparger 0001, Pg. 44 - She was the sister of Bethania
      Cook who married Henry's brother, Murlin Sparger.
      !Her birth & death date along with their marriage information comes from "The
      Journal of the Surry County Genealogical Association", November, 1993, page 8. Her death date was not actually given but the "Mt. Airy News" article was
      dated December 19, 1901 (Thursday) and said that she died Friday night. That
      would have been December 13, 1901.
      !Marshall 0146, p. 5 - She is buried with her husband in the Willow Wild Cemetery.
      !Marshall 0303, p. 1 - This source gives her death date as 11/29/1901.
