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.

David Sprinkle
Hi Again, Good grief! I just realized I had put Susan Elizabeth Stateler with the wrong last name. Her first marriage was to Charles Higsby and her second marriage was to David. So sorry for the confusion. Her correct name would be Susan Elizabeth Stateler Higsby Sprinkle. She died in 1910 in Owensboro, Daviess Co., KY, and I think the orituary in the newspaper had her listed with some really strange version of "Sprinkle"; however, I have been unable to find a complete copy of the obit.

Hi Margaret, Your three messages just now showed up in my email! I will search FamilySearch to see if I can find their marriage. Any information you can provide will be very much appreciated.

David Sprinkle/Sprikler 1837 - 1913
Hi, I believe David's third wife was my great-great-aunt, Susan Elizabeth Stateler Bingle, although she is not listed on his Find A Grave info. She died in Owensboro, KY in 1910. I do have some records showing both of their names, which I have included on my tree - Thixton - Feldman Family Tree. Are you aware of this marriage or have any information about Susan Elizabeth???
Thanks a bunch,
Sheila Kennedy (sd528)

RE: Mary Dorcas Hankins Graves
That's her - but I don't understand why she's not living with her parents (William Ralph Hankins & Lelia Wilson Hankins) or sister (Lucy A[nn - I think] Hankins. They lived at Greenwood (name of their home) near the eastern border of Surry County. WRH died between 1850 & 1859, his brother (her uncle, my gggfather) became guardian of his two nieces. The uncle owned Bacon's Castle, a historic plantation ~ three miles NNE of Greenwood.

I have a letter from the uncle to a son (my gguncle), complimenting his niece and describing the partying after the wedding.

She moved to Knoxville, became ill in 1862, her mother & sister brought her back to Va., she visited a doctor in Richmond, she had breast cancer & was to have a mastectomy (I assume she did), I don't have a letter stating when she died (but it's obvious it was in the fall or early winter of 1862). The letters describe her agony, etc. The letters also mention WHG visiting his wife, & describe him as a perfect gentleman and husband.

One citation I found stated WHG was a captain in the Alabama cavalry, but I found another Capt. Graves (AL cavalry) who was killed in the war - so perhaps our WHG was not in the AL cav.? Do you know anything about his military career?

I have a copy of the marriage lic. application (from Ancestry), I'll email it to you if you'd like - I'm at mcp[at symbol]
Are you related to WHG?

RE: Daphne Sprinkle/Cleo M Sprinkle Short
Hi Margaret, was wondering if you have had a chance to look at the question I sent you a while back (which I cannot see, so hard for me to remember what I wrote.). Daphne Sprinkle was my grandmother. Clem M Sprinkle was my great aunt. Do you have any info on them? Thanks for your help.
