I have come to a stopping place regarding my research on the Rev. Alfred Spracklen and Abigail Cooper family. I am not totally happy with all of it; however, while doing this research I came upon some fun articles that I would like to share. If the Keller family can have reunions why can’t the Spracklen’s.
The only problem is that I don’t have any photographs of these events. Sigh!
