  2. Hi Kathy,
    My name is Mary Blond(nee Sparkes). Thanks, I have seen that photo of Amelia before. She looks a grand lady. From what I've read she had a hard life - as did most of the early pioneers. Amelia's youngest brother, Alonzo was my great grand father. His son, Sydney was my grandfather. Neville Sidney Jackson Sparkes was my father.
