William Spark and Isabella Lindsay married 19 May, 1820, at
Swinton and Simprin, Berwick, Scotland.

NoteFamilysearch has a database of Scottish births that has an Isabella Lindsay baptized on 8th March, 1801, in Gordon, Berwick. Her father is shown as Adam Lindsay. It is not clear that this is Isabella, the wife of William Sparks.

Isabella Lindsay Sparks is with son Thomas Sparks and his wife Eugenia in East Nissouri Township as of the 1871 census. We will mention here that the 1861 census in Blenheim Township shows Isabella with William and three children still at home, the youngest being Thomas, age 16 at the time. There is another child in the home, however, Isabella, age one. We must believe this Isabella to be the same person with the Thomas Sparks household in the 1871 census, by this time age 10. Since Isabella Lindsay Sparks is 60 at the time of the 1861 census and 69 at the time of the 1871 census, she is obviously not the child's mother. The Isabella born in approximately 1860 is not found in the 1881 census and no other record for her has yet been found.
