    I wonder if we are related. My name is Paul Spahr. My ancestors were from Batavia Ohio. My grandfather’s name was Roman Spahr.

    Most of the Spahr’s in America are related.
    Max Spahr of Idaho did extensive research on the Spahr families of America.
    The Spahr’s migrated from Pennsylvania to Bucyrus, Ohio and spread out from there.
    One branch of the Spahr’s went to the southern states.
    Very interesting.
