I have other information on Frank (Benjamin Franklin) Spanswick. Other marriages indicated his parents were Benjamin Franklin Spanswick and Mary Jane Mowery.
I am trying to find out if anyone knows what had happened to Martha Spanswick, and her brother William J. Spanswick and her sister Mary Jane Spanswick????
Were they adopted or get married???
