In your research of records of Dauphin Co in the early to mid 1800's have you encountered any Billet families. My Gottlieb Billet moved from York Co to Dauphin Co between 1800 and 1810 and I seek names of his descendants who stayed in Dauphin County. Thanks

Robin, I have limited information on the SPONSLER family, James Kinter SPONSLER b 29 Apr 1840, m. ca 1860 Susanna P MILLIKEN b 1838, James parents are John & Julia ETTER SPONSLER. My sources for information are MILLIKEN family records, Dauphin Co. census records, & the 1896 biographical book of Dauphin Co. PA, originally published by J. M. RUNK & CO. If you do not have access to this book I will copy the pages with SPONSLER families for you. Jean M Bruce

Do you know what happened to Annie (nee Getz) Milliken? She married Thomas Milliken in Dauphin County. He was the son of Joseph and Fanny (Hite) Milliken. Annie was my Pappy's Aunt. Thank you
