Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been my hobby since I was a teenager. I research all of my lines with equal passion.

However, I have the most information on my Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle family. That is because I research all the Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle branches. Thanks to the Sprenkel DNA Project, we have learned that virtually all Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle families in this country are part of the same family. Note that these surnames are also spelled Sprankel-Sprenkel-Sprinkel-Sprinkles. One branch uses the Sprengle spelling.

Nearly all of the memorials I create or manage at Find A Grave are for people who are on my family tree. Rarely do I create memorials for individuals who are not connected to me in some manner. And, each memorial I create or manage is special to me.

Find A Grave is such a wonderful concept, and it is a marvelous resource for genealogists.

RE: Porter Family of Warren Co., PA
I think they lived in the Pine Grove and Conewango Townships. William and Mary Porter Durant's youngest son, Nathan Perry Durrant, was my three greats grandfather. I'm trying to find out more about their families. I got to William and Mary and they were a dead end in my search. I do know that William was from New England, but that's about all I know.

Porter Family of Warren Co., PA
Hi, I noticed that you have a few Porters in Warren County, Pennsylvania, and I wondered if you might know of any connection to a Mary Porter who married William Durrant in 1829 in Warren County. I have that she was the granddaughter of Samuel Anderson, but I cannot find any connections or history about her family. If you know of any other Porter or Anderson families from that area, please let me know. Thanks.

I have a copy of her obit from the Harrisonburg News Record, Feb. 20, 1904. If you would like to have a copy, email me.

Hi Margaret,
Are you related to the Brown family from Jefferson County, PA? I've come across several family photos including ones of Nellie Brown, husband James Owens, Norman Brown, Maxine Brown (daughter of Vance Brown) and a few more. Ring a bell? I can email them to you if you'd like. Barb

Visit to Watson Cemetery
Hi Margaret,

We've been in contact before. We are Auld cousins. I descend from Mary Auld Sprinkel's brother John Grove Auld. I anticipate a visit to the Watson Cemetery in the next few weeks. Do you live anywhere close? If so, maybe we could share a cup of coffee? Use my normal email address: My contact phone number is 913-226-1397. Annette Gauthier

RE: Joseph A. Hougendobler duplicate
That [transferring Joseph's memorial to me] would be fine. I'm his great x 3 grandson. Thanks much. I'll attempt to get the duplicate issue ironed out.

Joseph A. Hougendobler duplicate
Your memorial to Joseph A Hougendobler has a duplicate. I'm sure it's because of the cemetery name(s). Haas Cemetery is aka Old Rock Run Cemetery, but there is also a Rock Run Cemetery located about a mile away from the Haas one. I'm not sure which place he's buried but maybe you and OhioSearcher can work it out to consolidate the two, especially if one of you has actually visited the grave site.

A Sprankle GGGrandmother and some questions
I have a Sprankle connection in Bethlehem, Stark Co, Ohio (as late as 1916), but I mainly want to talk to you about memorials for Arthur James, Kitty Brown James, and Mary Margaret James (who happens to also be that Sprankle connection). Would you mind, at your convenience, emailing me at Thanks- Bryan Baker

John S. Lindsey
m Elizabeth Sprinkle in Fayette Co, OH. We now believe that John was the son of John and Mary Ann Lindsey.
I will have to create a memorial for John. Mary Ann married 2nd John Orr, Sr so might already have a memorial. These John and Mary were my ancestors.

We are looking for John and Elizabeth's living descendants in hopes there is a male who will do Ydna.
