The 1900 census of Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Allegheny County, PA shows John Spring, born July 1827 in Switzerland with son Samuel and family. It indicates John immigrated in 1871 and Samuel in 1872 Both were naturalized citizens.
Here is where you can find the marriage of Johannes Spring and Magdalena Farni in 1850. It lists, their birth dates, his father as Hans and her father as Samuel: http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?datestamp=1195390820093#c=fs%3A1520589&p=collectionDetails
You can find other such records at that website including under Swiss baptisms the records for a number of their children.
Samuel Spring and Caroline are buried in United Cemetery, Pittsburgh: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=spring&GSfn=samuel&GSbyrel=in&GSdyrel=in&GSst=40&GScntry=4&GSob=n&CRid=46549&df=all&pt=United%20Cemetery&
I wonder if the John Spring who was buried in Allegheny Cemetery in 1902 is your John: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=spring&GSfn=samuel&GSbyrel=in&GSdyrel=in&GSst=40&GScntry=4&GSob=n&CRid=46549&df=all&pt=United%20Cemetery&
Also listed in that same database is a Magdelina Spring who died in 1896. I suggest checking with the cemetery to see what they may have in their records. The Allegheny County Register of Wills (or rather the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh) should have their death records. It may not tell you much more than their exact dates of death.
A Johann Spreng 45 arrived on the Cimbria in New York on May 22, 1871.
