Again, I do not know who the author of these notes is or who they were prepared for. If any of you are able to make sense of them, I would love to hear from you. George & Barbara HETZEL are my GGGG Grandparents. I have had trouble finding information on My GGG Grandfather Christian SPROW's family, too. Any information on any of these relative's would be greatly appreciated, and as always, I will be more than happy to share what info I have. Thank You!
