Olma B. Sparks was my step-grandfather and the only grandfather that we knew.  O.B. and Clara B Penix Ward did not get married until they were in their fifties.  We all grew up knowing O.B, since he came to Dayton OH to work for Wright Patterson, then Fridgedare and retired from there.
 
This group of Castle and Sparks where the ones that we knew from this group. Carl & Dorothy lived up here in Dayton OH for abt five years.
 
My grandmother Clara Bell, owned a double complex and rented out sleeping rooms to borders.
 
O B is buried at Highland Memorial Park at Stanffordsville and Clara B. Ward Sparks is buried up here at Forrest Hill Cemetery Vandilia OH.
 
I am very sad that my grandmother wish was not fulfill at the time of her death.
My grandmothers wish was to be buried back home with her 2nd husband OB Sparks.
