Picture taken April 3, 1900 and given to granddaughter, Eva Reed Roop

Many thanks to Fillmore Spangler who provided a good bit of the information on the Spangler/Spengler family and has now created THE Spangler Family Genealogy page (check it out!). I only had a name found on the funeral home record of my ggrandfather. Queries on USGenWeb brought me to Fil and he was kind enough to share his information. Grateful thanks to Tom Spangler who provided the updated information from The Spangler Annals , published 1896. Sincere appreciation to John Murray who sent me the information on Catherine's Neff's family. And I've found a new cousin, Kathryn Rybak who has added tons of information! Fil's father, Fillmore Spangler, has also been helpful.
The newest donor of Spangler information is the estate of Carl Spangler SHOULTS, Jr. who preserved the papers, pictures and details of Robert W. Spangler, son of Daniel Spangler, adding another branch to our family tree.
The first fifteen generations are direct; later direct generations are in bold; + indicates that there is another generation on this page.
