  • Notes 
    • In Marquette, Michigan in 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910. In the 1900 census in some indexes, his last name is spelled Sparrowe, although to me in the original it looks as though the enumerator spelled it that way but then crossed out the e.

      Also listed in Duluth, St. Louis, Minnesota in 1910 with his daughter, Jessie, and her husband, James Prior.

      In Duluth, Minnesota in 1920 with his daughter, Florence, and her husband Robert O’Neill.
