Re: Parents of Jacob Spraker--Wythe Co. VA

Susan,
The information on the Sprecher family you submitted is correct as far as I know--with one exception. Christopher and Elizabeth were married in Rowan Co., NC, not in Wythe. Christopher did not arrive in what is now Wythe County, Va until ca. 1782, when he was granted land by Henry (Light Horse Harry) Lee. The birthplace of Christopher's daughter Molly, who married Frederick Hines,i is given in the 1850 census as NC. Her husband was born in the vicinity of Winston-Salem, NC, where his family were members of the Friedland Moravian Community. I assume that they met while the Sprakers were living in that area.
Do you have documentation on the parentage of Elizabeth Reigher Sprecher? I notice that you have a birth place for her.
Thanks.
Jim
