In Reply to: Moses Spring- War of 1812 : S.IL. , Tenn. by Gloira Baran of 779

Hi Gloria and everyone,

Sorry that I haven't been around much lately. Kids are keeping me way to busy.
Do you know how long Moses was married to Nancy? My Moses Alvin Springs(which I am 99 percent sure is Moses son) was not born until 1816 which put him born after the war of 1812. Looks like he might have been the result of a happy homecoming!! Does anyone else know where else I could look for info on Moses Alvin. I have look everywhere for the older Moses will but can't find it.
Gloria you once shared with me about finding military records. Moses Alvin was in the Militia(sp)in Illinois. Also there is a John Springs that was from Tenn. that I believe to be the older Moses brother. His kids are also in Illinios. There are 4 of them. I don't have the names with me right now but can find them if anyone is interested.

I believe that Moses Springs had more than 1 wife during his many years and several sons. I think they are Benjamin, Moses Alvin, and William Pit. There also is a Thomas Springs that lived in Warren co TN. He was a doctor there. I don't believe that he ever had children. The only connection with him that I have been able to find is in the 1850's Moses Alvin moved from Illinois back to Warren Co. instead of Wilson where the rest of the Springs family were.Moses Alvin then returned to Illinois until he died in the 1880's. So if anyone has any info on this family please post!! Talk to everyone soon.
