John SPRATLEY first appears in 1704 in James City Co. and the family moved between Surry Co. and James City where they owned plantations close to Archer's Hope, Cypress Swamp and Blackwater Swamp. They intermarried with the COCKE, HAMLIN, CARSLEY, SHACKELFORD, WHEADON, RUFFIN and FAULCON families, among others. I have wills and deeds for many of the family and need some help connecting all the different branches that keep appearing. My direct line, Albert G. SPRATLEY and Lavinia WHEADON, ended up in Smithfield, Isle of Wight Co. by 1850 where their children then disappeared.
Thank you for any help on this one.
