Elmadorus was the son of William Sprinkle & Mary Terrell.

He married three times. His first wife's name is unknown. He married (2) Abigail Sivley Williams, 1 Jan 1850, Scioto Co., OH; & (3) Martha McCollum.

Elmadorous & his first wife appear to have had about six children. The names of those who are known are: Matilda Jane (Killinger); John William; Memphis Tremain (Snavely, Bell); & Tatincy (or Latincy) Zane. One source also includes a daughter named Empress Vandalia; we have not been able to verify that name.

Elmadorous & Abigail had no known children.

Elmadorous & Martha had five interestingly-named children: Myrtle Elmore; Okinna Maletta; Og Wilt; Emma Wintossee; & Onyx Curwen. Onyx was the only one of Elmadorous & Martha's children to marry.

Elmadorous worked in the family business ("William Sprinkle & Sons, Hatters"), as the "runner" or "travelling hatter." In this capacity, he peddled hats up the Wilderness Road to Pennsylvania, and down the Kanawha River to Ohio.

There is a large on-the-ground, tablet-like marker in the Sprinkle lot, which is in memory of Elmadorous, his wife Martha, four of his children by Martha, & son Onyx's wife Bell.
