If you look closely you see a Peter Spracklin as a witness to this deed. This Peter Spracklin is another of Mary’s brothers. If you will recall, in past posts on John Andrews Spracklin’s estate, Peter Spracklin was granted Power of Attorney for his siblings in the selling of their father’s land by partition deeds.
So what happened to Mary and Henry Glancy who married in 1852. Where did they go?
