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 (or, 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: Reunion
Thanks for the information. Since Philip Martin Sprinkle died 12/17, I am trying to get his son, also Philip, more interested in his Sprinkle history and I felt if there was a reunion this year he might be interested in attending.

Margaret: Do you know of the Sprinkle reunion which is usually held in Pennsylvania? I think Wanda is usually in charge of it. Thanks Amy

RE: Wm and Faith Trushell
Hi Margaret. My email address is the same -I don't know why it didn't work. I'm age 82. I too want to donate my body to science. Keep up the good research. Bless you, Mary K.

Thank you for your suggestion about William. I must have become distracted when I created Faith's memorial and forgotten about William. I've now created a memorial for William. Both William & Faith donated their bodies to science. (I tried to send you an e-mail but it bounced back from the address shown on your profile page.)

Just transferred Maggie's memorial to you - families belong together. If you find any other memorials that are in your family, please don't hesitate to request transfer.

RE: Mary Lark Lauber
Mary Lark Lauber, born in York 2-8-1866, died of a stroke 6-6-1934. Funeral 6-9-1934, burial at Prospect Hill Cemetery. (from the Moravian Church record). The other one is the 1900 census. Also, I have a Moravian Church record for her sister Caroline whose birth date is given as 1-3-1867. For the sister to be born one month later (2-8-1867) is highly unlikely. I am not finding a paper copy of the Moravian Church record in my binder, but if you need a copy, I will see about getting one when I go back to York in June.

Help with Sprinkle Family Line
Hi Margaret, I was so excited to come across all the information you provided on Idumea Sprinkles memorial. I'm very new to tracing my family tree, I've always known about my mothers side but very little about my fathers ( Sprinkle) side. My grandfather was Leroy Sprinkle, my great grandfather David Randolph Sprinkle and 2nd great grandfather Jacob Sprinkle. Then I get stuck. I know my great grandmother, Suetta Gibson, had 11 children all boys from what I've been told but it seems none of the boys communicated. I know non of my relatives from the Sprinkle side, less my 1st cousins and have never run into anyone with my last name. Any help you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

SPRANKLE Charlotte 1868-1902
Margaret, Got your edit reply. The information I have came from a transcript of the Alex Ref Ch records which I transcribed either at the Huntingdon Co. Historical Soc or a the Historical Soc of PA in Phila back in the late 1980's. The record I have is born 27 Mar 1868 and Bpt. 18 Oct 1868. Died 19 Oct 1902. Your thoughts as I may have a typo. Use the email address shown on my bio page. Bill Neff Harrisburg, PA. I am also one of the Trustees of the Neff Cem located between Alexandria and Petersburg.
