Maggie: [Sparks and Related Families by Phyllis Sparks.FTW]: "Lois's story is so sad. She is in a photo I have, a family shot of a young Sparks family, such a beautiful little girl! She died so unnecessarily. After having a baby - a boy, she remained ill and couldn't get better. Her husband John took a urine sample to the doctor. In those days, the doctor went around the county treating people. I doubt he had an office, just used his home if needed. When John arrived at the doctors, there was no one there. He left the urine sample and returned home. The doctor never came and Aunt Lois died. What the Doctor did do, was culture the urine and discover that whoever it belonged to was indeed seriously ill. But John Stacy had not left any note to tell the Doctor who it belonged to, and the Doctor was unable to find it's source to treat the patient. I'm truly not understanding why John Stacy did not return to the Doctor. This story was related to me by my Sparks cousin, Gayle Hall. I need to get this info replaced, it dropped off when my computer crashed. I know Enoch Stacy was 2 years old when his mother died."
