You must be on the right track with the name Kinsey, but I still cannot identify the exact parents of Elias, b. ca. 1779/80.

What is your reference for the birth of Elias in Ann Arundel County?

This is mostly from Internet sources, so please verify. The Tazewell Co. marriages are from the state database of marriages, online.

Did you mean that Elias had children by 1820, not 1810?

Elias SPARROW (1779/80, MD - 23 Feb. 1859, Hopedale, Tazewell, IL) m. 9 Jan. 1811, Logan Co., KY, Nancy BARKER, b. 1793/5. Census of Tazewell Co., IL, lists Elia_ as 65 in 1850. Nancy was 55 in 1850 & 65 in 1860, but she must have been born before 1795 if married in Jan. 1811.

Children:

Sarah "Sally" (1812 - 26 Dec. 1889, Chillicothe, Livingston Co., MO) m. 27 Dec. 1832, Tazewell Co., IL, Samuel HODSON.

Samuel A., b. 1832? m. 3 July 1856, Tazewell Co., IL, Matilda MORMON, b. ca. 1842.
