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.

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)].

Sallie and James Sprinkles
Hello, I was photographing the Maple Ridge Cemetery in Carmi, IL. I have a photo of a James born May 4 1870 died March 20 1917 and Sarah born Sept 18 1875 died Oct 31 1949. Could they be Sallie Find A Grave#166635533 and James Find A Grave#102715210? If so I will post the photo.

RE: Mary Irene Cassady Shepard #167798677
I was going through Cambridge City and stopped at the public library to check for who would have burial records for Riverside. The librarian said that the records would be at the town building several blocks away. She very generously offered to call for me since it was raining rather heavily. The lady at the town building checked what she called the "lot card" and found that Perry Shepard is listed on his lot card, but no one else is. She said that this would make her believe that Perry is the only person buried in that lot and that Irene is elsewhere. I haven't had time to go by the library in Richmond and check her obituary to confirm that she is indeed at Elkhorn, but it is beginning to look like that is the case. Perhaps the family decided to bury her with the father of her children rather than a later husband.

RE: Mary Irene Cassady Shepard #167798677
I don't think it is. I think the death year is just 19-- with a space left to carve the date when it was finally known. I live about 15 miles away, so I will try to get over and check. There's no "office" at Riverside, so I may have to go to the town hall and see what I can find out. I have some commitments in the next few days, so it may be a couple of weeks before I can get back to you, so please be patient with me.

I was posting pictures I took at Riverside, and found that you have the lady above listed as being buried at Elkhorn, but linked to her husband Perry Shepard who is at Riverside. Her name is on the stone with Perry at Riverside. Do you want me to post that picture to her memorial with a notation in the caption that the stone is at Riverside? Or would you prefer that I leave it off? I will do as you wish.

James Boyd Ingle
James & Sallie Ingle were my husbands great-grandparents. Earlier this month we made a trip to Virginia and stopped by Ball's Chapel Cemetery. We were unable to find a headstone for either of them. I was just wondering if you had documentation stating they were buried there, maybe the graves are unmarked? Just wondering if you could shed some light on it. Thank you for your time.

Name on gravestone

Amos Meyers, 1815-1886 is my 4th great grandfather. However, I am having a hard time tracking down his father's name.
I see that you have added a photo of his headstone. What does William Meyers mean at the bottom? Could that possibly be his father? Or is that maybe a child who passed before him? I thought you might be able to shed some light on the writing of grave markers and another name included.

Harry Koehler in Glenwood, Oneonta NY
Because you made the memorial page for Harry M. Koehler 129626449, son of George Adam Koehler & Margaret Sprenkle, we thought you might like to know that there is now a photo of his marker.

Margaret: When I search "Cemetery Lookup" on the Find a Grave website, -- for Christ Episcopal Church in Martinsville, VA, I can find six people listed as interred in the Columbarium - but not one of them is Margaret Martin Sprinkle. amy
