When you get time will you check to see if you can verify these parents before I disconnect them?

Does anyone know about the following site an their assertions re Peter Sprinkle's wife and parents?

"We have no proof of the names of Peter Sprenckel's parents, his wife or the location they resided in Germany....The link between immigrant Peter and Johann does not exist. Any website that lists any names for Peter's parents and wife or a specific region in Germany are bogus"
