Sprinkle Family

First Generation

George Sprinkle was a son of Peter Sprenckel who reportedly immigrated in 1725 and settled in what is now York Co. PA. George purchased land on the Little Yadkin near Bethabara in 1782. He married Elizabeth Pettit (ca. 1750-1831), daughter of Benjamin Pettit. Another brother, Michael Sprinkle, also was in the Stokes Co. NC area early on. Some of the Sprinkles of this region are his descendants, and we'll try to deal with them in a future update to this page.
