Ursula died 22 Sept 18317 and is buried in Dillaborough Cemetery, Lassellsville, Fulton County, NY, USA. She was 59 years, 7 months and 5 days old. William died on 22 May 18527 and is also buried in Dillaborough Cemetery. William was a soldier of the Revolution. Age at death was 92 years and 19 days.

You will notice some conflicts of information in the above summary such as: When was Daniel Smith born?  When was Christopher Smith born? These still need to be resolved, however, I am putting these on my back burner until I get back to this generation. I will be researching all of Johannes Spanknable's children first, then I will do his grandchildren. What I do know is that I only had one known child for Ursula and William and now I have eleven.
