This Spriggs family came to Belmont Co, Oh from Washington Co, Pa after 1810. Some went on to Indiana, Kansas and Oregon. Others went to Wayne Co, Ill. Kin can be found in the census of Noble and Monroe Co, Ohio which includes a member of the first Supreme Court, State of Ohio. The Wayne Co and Oregon line is from Benjamin and Catherine Harshman
(Herschmann) Spriggs. Just type in some of these counties and the name Benjamin on this site and you will gain much information.
I descend from Benjamin's son Samuel who married Rebecca James, sister to Sidney who married Morris D. These two families went to Wayne Co, Ill. Samuel and Rebecca had a dau Mary Ann who married Daniel McManis, my great grandfather.
