[Research by Igor Plehve records that the Spadi family came from the German village of Afterroth, but this most likely refers to the place of birth of Anna Maria Wacker née Spady whose birth is recorded on the 1834-1845 Norka Communion Register on 29 November 1764 in Asterroth (probably a phonetic reference to Österreich = Austria).]
