Solomon Sparks (b1791)

I saw your picture of Jacob Esau Sparks (b1822 IN) and notice that he is the son of Solomon Sparks (1791-1854). I'm wondering if he could be my uncle! I have a Solomon Sparks born c1792 in Wilkes Co, NC, the son of Reuben Sparks Sr (1755-1840). I have no more information on Solomon except that he is found in the 1820 Wilkes Co census. Could he have moved west? I descend from two of Reuben Sparks' children: John (1786-1868) and Amelia (1799-1877). You can email me at jason@webjmd.com. Thanks! Jason.
