Peter and Catherine’s Children: George, Thomas & Peter

Peter and Catherine had three more sons.  They would be the grandchildren of John and Lydia (Goss) Spracklin.  I do not have as much on these children, again, double-check everything.

5.  George Andrew(s) Spracklen was born 18 January 1867 in Belle Plaine, and died on 26 September 1926 in Huntley, Yellowstone Co., Montana.  George married Edith DeClark b. 19 March 1872 in Green Valley, Tazwell, Illinois. She was the daughter of Peter DeClark b. 24 February 1808 and Sarah Van Houten d. 8 July 1913.  Peter’s father was Daniel DeClark b. 20 Oct. 1779 and mother was a Maria Blauvelt b. 21 Jan. 1786.  Sarah was the daughter of Johannes Van Houten b. 23 February 1784 and Elizabeth Palmer b. 28 November 1779.
