PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT be posting my family tree onto this page. At least not in the near future. If you have any questions, please email me. I did have my tree on this page, but it had many many errors in it, due to inexperience in my early research, and that tree was posted to a sister site - with warts and all. And I was not permitted to remove or correct my own tree. So PLEASE contact me. (2009-I will try by end of year to post more info, so that it is not as generic as it is. So sorry).

Surnames include:SPROWLS (the Sprowls Clan of Washington Co.Pa. is compiling data to update the history of the family - I have an extensive file of family data for Sprowls/Sproul/Sproule etc., even back to Ireland); ALL OBITS greatly appreciated!!
