[955] HARRY PERKINS SPARLING, M. D. A physician and surgeon at London, Madison County, for fifteen years, Doctor Sparling represents the third consecutive generation of the Sparling family to practice medicine in the State of Ohio.
His grandfather (sic), Wyndham Sparling, was born in Ireland, graduated from Queen Anne's Medical College in 1848, and for some time was in the medical service of the British navy as ship's physician. Coming to the United States, he settled in Noble County, Ohio, and practiced medicine there, earning a high place in the community. He married in Ireland and had two sons, one of whom continued the profession of medicine in the family, while the other took up the law.
Doctor Francis Ridley Sparling, the second generation in the medical profession, was born in Noble County, Ohio, was educated in public schools there and in Washington County, and in 1880 was graduated from the Starling Medical College of Columbus. For forty years he was one of the ablest physicians in Washington County, a man of rare public spirit and faithful in all his relationships. He died at Marietta in 1922. In 1881 he married Carrie Perkins, daughter of Ezra Perkins, one of the old-time citizens of Washington County. She died at Marietta in 1923. They had a family of four sons and two daughters. One of the sons, Wyndham Clyde Sparling, while a student in the Starling Medical College at Columbus in 1913 was awarded the Carnegie medal and the $1,000 in money for his bravery in rescuing people during the great flood of that year.
Doctor Harry Perkins Sparling, son of the late Dr. Francis Ridley Sparling, was born in Washington County, Ohio, November 23, 1883. He is a graduate of the Marietta High School, also of Marietta College, and took his medical course in Starling Medical College, now the medical department of the Ohio State University at Columbus. After graduating in 1910 he spent a year as house surgeon in Mount Carmel Hospital at Columbus, and since then has been engaged in a general medical and surgical practice at London. He is a member of the County, State and American Medical associations, is a thirty-second degree Scottish Bite Mason, a member of the Inde­pendent Order of Odd Fellows and the London Country Club. In politics he is a republican.
Doctor Sparling married at Columbus, in February, 1910, Miss Estella Murphy, daughter of William H. and Mary Murphy, of Columbus. Their four children are : Harold, born in 1911 ; William, born in 1912 ; Mary Catherine, born in 1913, and Jean Margaret, born in 1915.
