George Whitfield Sparks--John B. E. Glenn's Third Cousin
George Whitfield Sparks and his wife, Emmazetta Howell Sparks in 1884.
John B. E. Glenn, Mexican War soldier, 6' 5" tall, was his cousin. I think GWS is my 3rd cousin 4 times removed. Earliest picture of a Sparks I have seen, courtesy of a descendant of GWS. Forceful beard.
