Drusilla Spracklin and a Guardianship, 1866.

Drusilla Spracklin, wife of John A. Spracklin, was involved with a guardianship in 1866. There is not much information about this guardianship, just a bond being paid. I do not understand why she was compelled to be appointed their guardian but a thorough search of Court records like the Court of Common pleas might be in order to learn more.
