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.

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 (plus, as I read on someone else's profile, posting a death certificate is "just plain tacky").

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)].

May I ask how you are related to Henry Rife? I think my husband is related to his son, Daniel. Do you have Henry's will since part of it is on the website ? Thanks

trying to find photo of Elizabeth (TOY) SPRINKLES b 185Os

We corresponded about the SPRINKLES family [TOY connection] back in the early 2000's. My ancestor was Andrew J. TOY b c1858, brother to Elizabeth (TOY) SPRINKLES HILLARY b1850s.

I have one photo of Samuel and Elizabeth (TOY) SPRINKLES and family that I got from But it is not of very good quality [look like it has been copied and recopied a few times. I would like to get a better copy [perhaps a scan from actual photo] or other picture(s) of Elizabeth.

Do you have such a photo or can you refer to someone who does.

RE: Benefiel
Thanks for the info, Margaret. I try to check on my edit requests fairly often so the edits don't post automatically.

BTW, I know I have some Benefiel's in my ancestry through my Bedwell ancestors.

I received your email regarding this memorial. In my profile I state I don't accept edits. I will, however, be glad to transfer memorials as long as they are not my ancestors.

Thank you.

RE: Leota Aker
I am sure that it will help anyone
Looking for her grave
I am sorry I had to mark the stone but it is hard to read I am 76 and my eyes are not as good as they once were
I think most people looking at her stone would just walk on by it is so hard I feel the the information is preserved now and I posted one with the way the stone looked before it is hard for me to get up and down too

Margaret, thanks for including Miller Watkins as the son of Maria Miller and Jabez. As a descendant of Miller, we were told of Jabez not acknowledging his son. I visited the Watkins Museum a few years ago and left family Bible copies and other documents to add to their history to include generations of Jabez' descendants. We really exist and it is good to be acknowledged.
