Sponsler Family Genealogy Forum
Richard was raised in Tuscarawas, Co. Ohio. He married in Tusc. Co. the late 1840's to Lucinda Jones. There are several Sponsler's listed in Tuscarawas Co. at that time, but no Richard's in any of the censuses. I am thinking perhaps Richard changed his name.
I don't know for sure, but I suspect Richard was born in Frederick Co. MD. If you have any info on Sponler males born in Frederick Co MD around 1820, it might help.
I do not know his parents names. I have info on Sponsler's back to the 1700's, but cannot make the linkages back through Richard to my ancestors.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
