In Reply to: Tombstone for MOSES SPRINGS,( ILLINOIS) by Dennis Doughty of 781

Thank you Dennis for the Moses information. I believe that this Moses is a brother of my Gt.Grandfather Marshall E. Springs.I say this because I have the birth date of Moses as ca.1842 and I believe the military info. on the tomb is for the civil war. I have his wife as Elizabeth Raney and children as: Roscoe b.12-29-1887 William b.9-1877 Anna b.4-1884 I have Elizabeth b.5-1850 IL. I ordered some books from mountain press: 1.Tennessee History& Biographies-Wilson County-(Goodspeed). Here's some info. from the book:" From 1799 the settlement of the county was rapid.The lands lying on the waters of the various creeks being the richer and easier of cultivation were naturally the first settled,and hence in giving the following list of names of the early settlers. On Round Lick Creek, including Jennings Fork: John Peyton,Arthur Hankins,James Wrather,Samuel King,William Haines,John Bradley,William McSpaddin,William Coe,ABER SPRING,etc." I believe we have this info. on Aber and I was disappointed that there wasn't anything else about the Spring family. Again thank you for sharing Dennis.My next trip to S.IL. will be Thanksgiving time which will not be a good time to research, but a good time to visit cemeteries. Sincerely, Gloria Baran
