Sparks history:

My Great-Grandfather, Daniel Stokes Pritchett, was one of the first settlers in Sparks. He was in the Oklahoma Land Rush, settling in part of what is now Oklahoma City and later trading it for a homestead in Sparks. The Sparks homestead had a large, anvil-shaped rock on it and the name "Anvil" was used for the trading post that Daniel Pritchett established. He also had the first cotton gin in Sparks. Attached is an old photo of my Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother in front of their home in Sparks. My Father, along with his four sisters, Mae, Vera, Bernice, Lorena; and two brothers, Ellsworth and Ollie, grew up on the homestead.

My Grandfather, William E. Pritchett, Sr, drove a team and wagon to Seminole, carrying water to the oil fields; he also had the road maintenance contract at one time, around part of Lincoln County. Lorena Pritchett, the youngest child, was killed in an automobile accident in the early 1940's, the first traffic fatality in Lincoln County. He was also the Justice of the Peace in Sparks. My father used to tell me that my great-grandfather used to have to carry a rifle when going into Oklahoma City for supplies because Geronimo was still on the loose then.
