Amarilla’s father Daniel D. Spracklin migrated to Iowa about 1855 from Ohio and settled first in Benton County and later moved to Iowa County, Iowa. Daniel’s first wife, Elizabeth Keller, traveled with him and their babies to Iowa where she died and is buried in the Titler Cemetery. I have posted about Daniel and Elizabeth in past posts.
The marriage of Daniel and Elizabeth is recorded in the Morrow County, Ohio records in 1853. He lived in Knox County with his parents John Andrews Spracklin and Lydia Goss Spracklin till he migrated to Iowa.
I will be traveling to Ohio this August and visiting the counties of Hardin, Morrow, Knox, Franklin, Portage, and more in search of the Goss, Spracklin, Keller and Delano history. My trip starts next week. Come join me for highlights of this trip at the blog:

I will be taking a break from this blog so I can devote my time and energy to my pending trip. I will return in the Fall!
