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.

Thank you! I am not as closely related to the rest of them, but it is nice to have good photos of all of them posted at Find a Grave for other researchers.

Thanks again for your help!

John Gantz
Dear Margaret,
I have searched unsuccessfully for several years for information about John Gantz until I found your Information on, file 115668027. Your information intrigues me. My maternal family derives from Clarence Michael Gantz, Jacob Cornelius Gantz, George William Gantz, Jacob and Elizabeth (Fleming) Gantz, and John and Eve (Weaver) Gantz. I know that George William lived in Frederick County, Virginia during the early 1800s before moving to Wood County, (West) Virginia in 1852 via the Northwestern Pike. His mother, Elizabeth Fleming Gantz, accompanied him to Wood County and died there on 8 Oct 1858. We think that her husband, Jacob Gantz, died in 1816 in Frederick County, Va from complications and injuries which he received while serving in military action in the battle of Black Rock, NY during the War of 1812. I was looking for John in eastern Pennsylvania, but if he moved to Washington County, Pennsylvania around the turn of 19th century, this opens new possibilities. Do you have more information about John and Eve Gantz that is not part in his FindAGrave memorial? Thank you in advance for giving attention to my request.

Charlotte Conlin Sprinkle
Hi Margaret, thank you very much for connecting Bobby and Charlotte memorials together and providing the several Sprinkle memorials. Charlotte is a 1st cousin of mine and I have been trying to find info about the Sprinkle family for several years. Charlotte is a descendant of Thomas Conlin memorial 21634326. Thomas and his wife Charlotte are our immigrant family from Ireland/Scotland in 1869/1870. Walt
