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.
Please do not add death certificate images to the memorials I create. I feel that a death certificate is a rather private, personal thing, and it is not appropriate to display it on a memorial.
Also, please do not leave "flowers" with additional information or corrections. We contributors do not receive notification of "flowers" placed on memorials we manage. If you have additions or corrections, use the "Edits" feature.
[To Find A Grave Admin: In the case of my demise, please transfer all my memorials to my cousin Don Ludwig (#48084204)].
Just wanted to let you know I confirmed Margaret's mother Sarah's maiden name was Hamilton as I had suspected. It was listed on Margaret's death certificate as well as her brother James Hamilton Davis's death certificate. That was an exciting find for me! Just wanted to share since you had asked a while back.
John S. Kauffman Thanks for catching that. I have updated Findagrave #64691305 and updated the children as well. The link to son Chauncey is invalid, and I have notified that individual. I also have doubts about Cora as well.
Kauffman If you click on the stone to enlarge it, you will see it is 24. I am also working from a list from 1933 that I copied from the historical society that says she died 24 Nov 1890. See what you think, thanks.
