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 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)].

RE: Austin Craley

I looked for Granville Jackson's obit, but it appears he died in Florida, so maybe they didn't put one in. If you have his wife's death date, maybe I can find hers if your that interested.

Sprenkle. Any relation to Dr. Charles Sprenkle West Chester University Professor

Of interest is another surviving daughter with the same name as the one deceased.

Thank you for the information on his birth. I have added your explanation to his memorial - that way if a family member finds it they will understand. Thanks again.

Hi Margaret,

First of all, I want to thank you for posting the information you have on the Sprinkles. It has been fun to read and makes me excited to start my research. My second great grandmother is Sarah Elizabeth Sprinkle (70674527). I was wondering if you could share your sources with me on Ira Goff Sprinkle and Matilda Flanary. I am especially curious about how you found out the she drowned. I really appreciate your help and look forward to working with you!

I was clearing out emails and I found your transfer request. I'm sorry I missed it, I'm usually better at catching them. I apologize, the transfer has been made.

Hello Margaret,

They are separate cemeteries. My father was born and raised in Connersville and I've been to those and several others surrounding them over the past forty years.
