In Reply to: EZEKIEL SPRIGGS by Gene Spriggs of 458

It looks like your Ezekiel is Ezekiel B. Spriggs, the son of Ezekiel M. Spriggs and Louisa McCoy. His siblings were Caroline, Adaline, Saloma, Louisa, John Milton, Theodocia, Caledonia and M.D.L. poss. "Marcus D. Lafayette".

Ezekiel B. Spriggs went by the name of "Zeke". He grew up in Cleveland near Charleston, in Bradley County. He served in the Civil War and his widow Mary received his military pension.

Zeke appears in the following Census Records:
* 1850 United States Federal Census
* 1860 United States Federal Census
* 1860 United States Federal Census
* 1870 United States Federal Census
* 1880 United States Federal Census
* 1900 United States Federal Census
* 1910 United States Federal Census

Zeke and/or his widow Mary appear in Civil War Confederate Pension Application Indexes for Bradley county.

The children of Zeke and Mary were: 1. William C. Spriggs b. 1871, spouse: Almeada last name unknown; 2. Louise Spriggs, b. 1874, spouse: James M. Copp; 3. Richard J. Spriggs b. 1876; spouse: Ola Dell Homer; 4. John Henry Spriggs b. 1877, spouse: Flora C. last name unknown.

Hope this helps.
