Before I launch into the lives of Daniel D. Spracklin’s children, I will be taking a break from posting to this blog.
Every year the Delano Kindred has a reunion in some part of the United States where a Delano descendant settled. I became a member many years ago. It is not a strict hereditary society they accept your casual lineage without question. I guess they figure you know what you are doing. The membership is reasonable in cost.
This year their reunion is in San Diego, California. I have been wanting to go to one of these reunions and almost made it several years ago when they were near San Francisco but that didn’t work out.
This year I am attending and will be giving a report on my other blog titled: Solomon Goss in Fearing Twp., in Ohio (see link on the right side of this blog). I am following it up with a visit to Disneyland which I have not been to in 15 years. The Mouse has been renovating and I have to check out all the changes.
I have been to San Diego several times over the years so I am somewhat familiar with the city. I have done research in San Diego on my cousin Paul H. Goss who did a great deal of work on the Goss family. I also studied my mother’s side. We drove up the coast to Laguna Nigel (closed) when NARA was still there and I sought out immigration records and then we went to the Los Angeles Public Library. The genealogy section was at the very bottom floor of that amazing library. We took the escalator down down down.
So why am I interested in the Delano Kindred, well Amarilla’s mother was Elizabeth Keller Spracklin and her mother was Mary Anne Delano Keller. The Delano family goes back to Philip Delano who sailed on the second ship to Plymouth, the Fortune.
Here is a list of posts I have written on the Solomon Goss blog about the Keller, Delano and Spracklin connection and it might not be all but it is a good overview.
Elizabeth Keller married Daniel D. Spracklin in 1853 in Morrow Co., Ohio:

You will also find posts about Daniel, Elizabeth and Sarah on this blog as well. You can use the search engine or the categories to find them. They are a little older then the ones on the Solomon Goss blog and some of the information may need to be updated. I will deal with that later.
Here is a link to a preliminary itinerary for the reunion:
