Sparkman, Nancy

Nashville Christian Advocate, March 28, 1885
Laurel Baty

Mrs. Nancy Sparkman, daughter of James W. and Elizabeth Copeland, was born in White County, Tenn., June 14, 1822. Sister Sparkman professed religion and joined the Methodist Church in the year 1840, in which she lived a consistent member until her death. She was married to Lewis Sparkman in 1843, and died near Flint, Ala., Dec. 23, 1884, from pneumonia. Her body was deposited in the Forest Chapel cemetery on Christmas-day. She was sick only a few days, but bore her intense suffering with great patience. She was the mother of twelve children, five of whom have gone to live in a bright world beyond this vale of tears, where she has now gone to reunite with them. The seven children that are left here to mourn with her bereaved husband and aged father are all members of the Church. Sister Sparkman was conscious to the very last hour of her life, and begged her children not to weep for her, that she was not at all alarmed at death, nor afraid to die. She was a kind, indulgent mother; a loving and devoted wife; a precious grandmother to her many grandchildren. Our Church has lost a faithful member.Mrs. E. M. Isley
