DICK SPARKS CEMETRY

DICK SPARKS CEMETERY

West of Old Electra Cemetery

West Side of State Highway 25 North

Information in this listing was obtained from City Hall death records, Robert Stohl survey of 1999, Julie Coley survey of 2005, cemetery lot receipts, microfilmed newspapers, burial permits, funeral home lists of burials, and family records.

It is noted that some of the death dates were prior to the death date of Dick Sparks in 1946 when the cemetery was reportedly started.  Early death records listed persons as buried in the Colored or Black Cemetery and it is unknown where that was located or if it was a different location than that now designated as Dick Sparks Cemetery.  I have included these early deaths for your information.

D.O.B = DATE OF BIRTH                                                                          D.O.D. = DATE OF DEATH

We also have available the Bill Stohl survey of the cemetery.  If anyone feels like it needs to be added here just let me know.  Otherwise, it is available at the library for anyone to see.
