Sorry I didn't see your post sooner, but I changed ISP's and didn't get notified when you posted.
The William Spradling that was b. 1770 & m. Margaret ??? isn't my line.
If you can believe it, there were 2 William Spradlings living in the same small area of Jefferson Co. AL bef. 1820.As far as I can tell, they aren't related. They each had 9 children, and 5 of the childrens names appear in each family.I barked up the wrong family tree for several years, so I have a good bit of information on this line.
William (b.1770) died in 1856 and left and incredible will. I know that most of his family moved away, but I can remember exactly where they all settled.The good news is that William's will lists where each child is living in 1856, right down to the Post Office.I don't have this information on my computer, since it isn't my line, but I do have a copy of the will somewhere.
Give me a few days to locate it, and I'll get back to you. I'm fairly certain that at least one of Wm's children wound up in MO.
