SPAWR Family Death and Burial Locations

This is a listing of known death and burial locations of SPAWR family members and their descendants. As much as possible, information on the deaths of those who are related to the SPAWR family by marriage will also be included; married women are listed under their maiden names, to the extent these are known; this is an important question, because some SPAWR ancestral women's maiden names are not presently known. Individuals are listed on this page only if an identifiable date or location of death or burial is available.

This page is in continuous progress, and will be updated whenever new information is provided; it will take considerable time for all currently available data to be entered, as there is a lot of data. The accuracy of this information is based on the work of its submitters. If you detect an error in this information, please let me know as quickly as possible, and it will be updated.
