I have spent 4 years looking for my gg-grandmother who married Benjamin Franklin Spalding and recently found out it was Catherine Zufelt daughter of Alpheus Zufelt and Susan Wilkins born March 03, 1837 or 1831. Her siblings were John, Harriet, Lucinda, Loyal Van Valkenburgh, Thomas, Jane, Mary, Isaiah, Joseph Errington, Levi, George, Henry and James. After finding out her last name was Zufelt, I connected with Doug Norman who was kind enough to share some dates and places but had no stories to tell or photos on this family. I would appreciate hearing from others researching this family who might have stories or possibly pictures they could share. I have nothing on this side of the family since my grandmother and her sisters found it necessary to burn all photos and papers after someone passed to cover up long ago skeletons. They never repeated any stories either and it is the stories and photos which help bring these ancestors to life. This is also why this side has been such a struggle. Any help with the Zufelt line would be appreciated.
