Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 355, Princeton Township, White County, Indiana

"JACOB SPANGLE is of German descent, a native of Stark County, Ohio, born July 4, 1825, and one of eleven children born to JACOB and SARAH (EBY) SPANGLE. When MR. SPANGLE was five years of age, he removed with his father to Crawford County, this State (Indiana), and there remained until his twenty-fourth year, when he again removed with his parents to Noble County, Indiana, and there lived and worked for his father until the spring of 1851, when he came to West Point Township, this County (White County, Indiana), and there lived one summer, and then came to Princton Township, and purchased 174 acres of land in Section 31, where he still resides. The marriage of MR. SPANGLE to MISS JULIA A. BLACKMAN, of Noble County, occurred March 25, 1852. To this union have been born eleven children - ELISHA E., whose birth occurred December 15, 1853; MAYHEW C., October 9, 1855; HENRY C., April 4, 1857; JACOB M., January 8, 1859; WILLIAM S., May 19, 1864; JAMES F., December 28, 1865; GEORGE T., November 8, 1867; JOHN M., December 26, 1871; AMY J., February 24, 1861; LUCY J., September 9, 1862; MARGARET A., January 14, 1870. MR. SPANGLE was reared a Jackson Democrat, then became a stanch Republican, but is now a solid Greenbacker. He has been a member in good standing in the German Baptist Church for nearly twenty years."
