I am researching the family tree of Richard Sponsler. He was born in MD about 1819 and grew up in Ohio. He married in Tuscarawas County in 1844 to a Lucinda Jones and moved out about 1847 to Greene, County Indiana. In about 1862-3 he re-married to Emily Smith(?) Rodgers who's husband Davis E. was killed in the Civil War. They moved to Illinois, where he gave rise to the following Children: George W., Robert O. and Laura. Robert Orbison Sponsler was my grandfather. His given name was Orbison Delmar, which he legally changed as an adult. One of his sons was Roy J. Sponsler who was my father.

I am seeking to discover who Richard's parents were, as well as his brothers and sisters. It would appear from marraige and census data he is related to Samuel, Jacob, Sarah Sponsler Buffington, Andrew and Michael Sponsler who are in the 1850 census of Tuscarawas Co. OH. I have researched him for over 10 years and have not been able to verify who his parents or siblings were were.

I am communicating with several other people on line who are researching the Sponsler/Sponseller/Ponsler lines. I would be glad to exchange information with anyone, who is researching this family.
