Hello Dennis, Thank you for your kind supporting words. I feel the more we share the better we can put the pieces together to get the big picture. I know I was hesitant to share small bits of info. thinking it was too small and maybe unimportant. But now I came up with my tidbits postings to share small bits of new information. You encourged me to look at some deeds I copied from my Tenn. trip. I'm telling you that the paper I looked at last night was one I wanted to throw away last year. It's so so unreadable. But I believe I am able to deceipher some words. It 's from deed book L p.423-424. " This Indenture made first day of May in the year of our Lord one Thousand eight hundred ( twenty seven ?) . Between Benjamin Springs of Wilson County and State of Tenn. of the first part and ------- -------- of the county and State afore said of the ---------- ----------. ----------- that I Benjamin Springs for and -------- -------- of the sum of eight hundred dollars -------- in hand paid the --------- where it is hereby (asministered ?). Have bargained sold and conveyed and -------- --------- do bargain-------- convey and confirm (within?) the said ( Soloman Caplinger ?) for his heirs and -------------- a certain piece of parcel situated in----------- lying----- this --------- ------------ of the dry fork of the round lick ----------. Beginning ---------- ----------- hickory . John Springs? South east --------- ------------ most fifly ------- poles to a stake in the side of the big road---------north border-------half poles stake. Thense--------- ------------ things with William? ----------- east boundary lines to an ash and ------- in ---------- spring border--------------John Springs south west --------- ---------- -------------- with its boundary to an oak and -----------. John Springs south east corner. Thense south to ----------- ----------- in --------- road eight poles from Springs ash? ---------- boundary lines. Thense to eastwardly section in the certain of said --------- to a white oak in Spring ----------- bounday line. Thense is west to Moses Springs north ------------ ------------ in the dry fork of the round lick creek." There is a little more left but very difficult to read. I want to go to the library in Nashville, but don't know if I can do it. I will always keep your Betsy Ann in mind when doing Springs research. May God bless our President Bush and our service men overseas!!!!!! Sincerely, Gloria
