Daniel Spangler (1781-1851) was my 3rd great-grandfather, who married Elizabeth King (1796-1863) in 1815 in York, Pennsylvania and they had ten children between 1818 and 1841. I am descended through daughter Rebecca Spangler (1832-1901), who married David Jackson Carringer in 1851 in Mercer County.
