About Thomas Sparrow
Thomas Sparrow (c.1770-1818), brother of Lucey Hank's husband Henry. Resided in Mercer and Hardin Counties, Kentucky.
Since Thomas & Elizabeth were childless, they acted as foster parents at various times for three illegitimate children in the Hanks clan: Nancy Hanks (President Lincoln's mother), Dennis Hanks, and Sophia Hanks.
In 1817 they followed the Lincolns to Spencer County, Indiana. Elizabeth and Thomas died of the milk-sickness, as did President Lincoln's mother, in 1818.
