Samuel Sparks - Sunday's Obituary

My Sparks family was from Queen Anne's County, Maryland and at some point the family moved to Baltimore, MD. Samuel was a very common name for the males in the family and it has made it a challenge to distinguish between the families. Another common name was Robert, so that would be a guess for the middle initials. I suspect these first two death notices are not my direct family as I don't think they were in Baltimore yet, but the last one may be related to mine. I definitely have more research to do on this family to sort these all out!

From The Sun, Baltimore, MD on April 20, 1857: Departed this life, Sunday, April 19th, SAMUEL R. SPARKS, in the 59th year of his age?.

From The Sun, Baltimore, MD on March 6, 1878: On 5th of March 1878, after a lingering ? of consumption, SAMUEL R. SPARKS, aged ???.

From The Sun, Baltimore, MD on March 23, 1900: A 3-year old child of Samuel Sparks, of Queen Anne's county, died from swallowing medicine tablets for candy.
