Hi everyone,

Ok I am going to give you my thoughts on Benamin and Sarah. I believe that Moses was married to Sarah(not the one that is 70 something in 1850). I believe him to married several times. He had at least 3 boys and 1 girl. Benjamin, Moses Alvin, and Moses Washington are the boys. I don't know the name of the girl but Sarah or Elizabeth would be a good guess :) The older Sarah that is listed on the 1850 census is the widow of John Spring. He is the brother of the older Moses W. Spring. ohn's children are the ones that Dennis listed that are linked to the Wiggs family. The older Moses W. Spring was a close friend to the Bell's. At one time he was living on their property. I have paid a lady to work on this family and she finally gave up on trying to sort this family out. She didn't come up with anything that I didn't already have. I have been able to sort this family out except when it comes to Moses W. Spring. I know that he came to Illinois because he and John got land from serving in the war of 1812. My Moses Alvin Spring was not born until 1816 so I don't know if Moses W. Spring war records would have any info on him or not. Well I have rambled long enough. Talk to everyone later.
