Dear Linda,

How nice to hear from you again. I am not sure about which, or how many, families we have corresponded about, but I seem to recall our first exchange was over some wonderful information you had posted about Thomas Sprigg's Maryland plantation, Northampton. I don't know if I've told you, but I managed to track down the original of a portrait of Thomas Sprigg, and get a picture of it. Let me know if I can be any help with the folks who are researching him.

My line down from Thomas Sprigg & Eleanor Nuthall goes as follows:

Thomas & Eleanor (dau. of John Nuthall)
Mary Sprigg (d.1693/4) & Thomas Stockett IV (1767-1732)
Eleanor Stockett (b.1693) & Richard Williams (1684-1748)
Eleanor Williams (1717-1788) & Francis Linthicum (1709-1765)
Frances Linthicum (1749-1806) & Daneil Sherwood III (1749-1838) MD to NC c.1779.
Eleanor Sherwood (1776-1859) & Jeremiah Field (c.1764-1830)
Elswick S. Field (1808-1867) & Guilianna L. Lindsay (1807-1885)
John Andrew Field (1846-1883) & Mary Adeline Wilkinson (1846-1906)
Ernest Marion Field (1866-1902) & Mary Rhetta Bell (1862-1947)
John Levi Field (1899-1963) my grandfather.

I wonder if we might not have connections through the Noland family. Jeremiah Field, my 4th great grandfather mentioned above, was a son of William Field, Jr. (bef.1728-1805) and Lydia Elswick (1743-c.1829) of Randolph Co., NC. William & Lydia had eight children. Jeremiah was the 3rd child and first son. The first child was Mary Field (c.1760-1846) who married Pierce/Pearce Noland (1756-1816) and went to Mississippi. They lived at Fort Adams, Wilkinson County, Mississippi, which is somewhere between Natchez and the Louisiana line. One of Mary's daughters was in Vicksburg during the siege.

Best Regards,
