I have a record of Joseph sproUt and Elizabeth Herr marrying at Mount Joy, both from Elizabethtown, Pa. They were married by Robert Spear Esq. on the 17th according to my record. Mount Joy is the location of Donegal Springs Presbyterian Church. That church, beginning about 1720 supplied circuit ministers for all of western Pa and Virginia. Rev. McFarquhar was minister in 1814. Robert Spear was a pewholder and trustee of Donegal Church. I'm guessing that Joseph SproUt and Elizabeth Herr were not Presbyterians, therefore not Scotch-Irish, therefore not married by the minister but rather by a magistrate?Are you descended from this couple? You obviously have much more information than I because you know birth and death dates of this couple.
