Cape Girdardeau, Co MO Queries & Surnames




DATE: OCT 3, 1996
NAME: REITA SPARROWK

SURNAMES; SPARHAWK (or SPARROWK)

I am researching any SPARHAWK (or SPARROWK) in Cape Girardeau Co. (or anywhere). Dr. William Jenness Sparhawk Sr. and Mary Emily Bushey Sparhawk lived in Cape Girardeau. He was a surgeon until his death in the 1940s. Dr. Sparhawk's second wife was named Elsie.
William J. Sparhawk Sr. had a brother, Claude B. Sparhawk Sr., who was married to Carrie Bushey. There was also a sister, Sarah Sparhawk Bushman, mar. to Joseph Bushman - Don Bushman and Joseph Bushman Jr. Sarah Bushman may have been active in the DAR and Eastern Star in Cape Girardeau.
William and Claude Sparhawk descend from Noah Sparhawk of Ohio > Nathan Sparhawk> George Washington Sparhawk. George W. Sparhawk was one of the first licensed Steamboat Captains on the Missouri and/or Mississippi River, lived in St. Louis, and founded a bank in St. Louis. Sparhawk Landing (later became Thebes, IL) was named after George W. Sparhawk. There is supposedly an oil painting of George W. Sparhawk in the Lindberg Museum (?) in St. Louis. George is also referred to in several of Mark Twain's stories
. This information is second-hand to me. I would appreciate any further information, corrections, etc., on the above people.
Thank you for any and all help.

Cape Girardeau County MO query: Looking for descendants of Benjamin HALL (and wife Rebecca)who operated ferry across Mississippi to upper Union Co. IL. until early 1820s. He may be the Benjamin HALL who died on the river about 1825. He may have had a daughter, Eliza Ann HALL who married Orrin GALLUP in Owen Co., IN in 1837 as a minor with guardian permission, guardian unnamed. This connection has eluded me for years. Eliza Ann's mother was said to be from the BARRINGER family which is found across the river in Union Co. IL.

Cape Girardeau Co query - families HALL & BARRINGER. I have reviewed various census data, but it was not adequate for my problem. My ancestor, Eliza Ann Hall Gallup, married in Owen County, IN in 1837. Her maiden name was Hall, and Eliza's mother was claimed to be Mary BOURINDGOIR by a notoriously poor speller in our family. Although Eliza claimed to be born in Grove, KY, I've never found any trace of her there. On the other hand, the names Hall and Barringer turn up in Union Co. IL with a Benjamin HALL described in the Union Co. history as "dying on the river" about 1825. This was convenient since Eliza's permission to marry as a minor was granted by an unnamed guardian, not her father. In fact, I find Halls and Barringers in the same block on Market Street in early Jonesboro, IL. I also located them possibly in the same Baptist Church in the northwest part of the county. The connection to Cape Girardeau is from the fact that the Hall family lived there probably by 1820 and operated a ferry across the Mississippi. I am very interested in determining if Eliza Ann HALL GALLUP was a member of that Hall family and in what way.
