Trying to find info on the following people.They lived in Whitley county Indiana according to the 1880 Census.I haven't been able to find anything else on either Wm Spratt or his daughter Jame Spratt.Wm Spratt's wife was born in England and was deceased before the 1880 census.Also cannot find any info on Judson Kelley other than his being listed on George Kelley and Alice Shanks wedding application.He was listed as father but was in fact the step-father to George W Kelley.
Update:I did find a Wm W Spratt, with wife listed as Ann.They were in the 1850 census and listed as living in Pennsylvania • Shamokin •Northumberlandduring the 1850 Census • I suspect it is the same family but Jame was not born as of yet.
