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 more information on my Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle family. That is because I research all Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle branches. Thanks to the Sprenkel DNA Project, we have learned that virtually all Sprankle-Sprenkle-Sprinkle families in this country are related.

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.

I am working on the Elijah Sprinkle line. Could you share any info you have on them with me? Elijah is my third great grandfather. Thank you Adele

One Foot In The Grave
RE: Letitia Humphrey Boblit
Thanks for the memorial number. The memorial for Letitia was created by John Melton, who founded our "One Foot In The Grave" genealogy group, and he died a year after the date on the memorial. My guess would be that he got her dates, etc from He created some 25,000 memorials for Central Illinois cemeteries so if he were still around he might not remember anyway. Wish I could be of more help.

Bench Myers
The Plot location for Bench Myers, which is listed in the Ogden City Cemetery records, is 2A-10-33-1W. The record shows birth date of 2/27/1837 and death date of 10/21/1910. I took some pictures of the plot location and would be happy to email them to you if there is a way to get them to you other than on the public message board. I believe we are only to download pictures of headstones to the Find A Grave website, not plot locations.
Thank you.

RE: Letitia Humphrey Boblit
Do you have the memorial number for her ? Our group has a lot of memorials (almost 25,000) so it would take me awhile to find it otherwise. The answer is probably No to the question but I can check and see for sure.

RE: Claflin tombstone photos
You are most welcome.

I just wanted to make sure you were aware that there were additional names listed on the back of the monument stone that were not listed in find-a-grave. I added them but without a photo. The photo I took did not come out to my satisfaction. I will retake it the next time I vist Rock Creek.

RE: Hawkins photos at Centerburg
Margaret, You are very welcome! Glad we could get the photo for you. It was a beautiful fall day in Ohio and the cemetery is in a beautiful spot, on top of a hill surrounded by cornstalks, fields and farms. Enjoy! Sue

RE: Grace Harp(e) Harrison
I know. You never can be sure on spelling. That's the one thing I've learned doing genealogy. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention. Glad I could find the stone to matter how the name's spelled! :)

Grace Harp(e) Harrison
Sunset Hill--I have the photo and wondered if you needed to check on the spelling of her maiden name. Was it spelled with an "e" at the end? Just pointing it out. I'm not related to them.
