Biographical Sketch of Gene Sparrow Warren

Henry H. Sparrow (1861-1924) was a citizen of Pulaski County his entire life; was educated in her schools, with one year in the Military Academy at Dahlonega. He, as his father and brother, was quiet and unassuming, yet measuring up to the highest standards of citizenship. He was full of civic pride and gave to his county and her enterprises his loyal support at all times. He was an extensive farmer and an advocate of advanced methods of farming, a promoter of the first county fair, a member of the Board of County Commissioners when the value of good roads was first demonstrated, in 1901-1908. He was tax collector from 1891 to 1895, and a well known warehouseman. He served on the city’s board of education. He married Helen Carruthers of Hawkinsville in 1898. Six sons and five daughters survive Henry Sparrow. They are: Mary C., Thomas Joseph, Loretta Frances, Helen C., Edna Elizabeth, Marion, Henry H., Dan. P., Frank B., William C., and Richard Carruthers.

While time and its varying fortunes have placed the Sparrows over several of our Southern states, they all call Pulaski home, and are ever watchful and concerned when her interests are involved.
