About Rachel Griggs

=============

From Sparks Family Quarterly:

Rachel Sparks, daughter of Jonas Sparks. She was called Rachel Griggs in her father's will, but there is no marriage bond for her on file in Rowan County; it must be remembered, however, that many early North Carolina marriages were accomplished through the crying of banns rather than through bonds, and that no record was made of the banns type of marriage. (See 'Sparks Marriage Bonds from North Carolina' by William P. Johnson in the December, 1954, issue of The Sparks Quarterly, Vol. II, No. 4, Whole No. 8, pp. 54-55.) Several Sparks deeds in Rowan County were witnessed by Minus Griggs, and it seems probable that he was the husband of Rachel. Rachel's brother, 1.2.5.6.6 David Sparks, named a son Minus, perhaps for Minus Griggs.
