Sarah Wells Spurgin Johnson Co IN
Posted by: Margaret Wells Date: March 09, 2002 at 15:56:21

Need help solving a puzzle. In 1850 Indiana Sarah Wells Spurgin 50, b PA is living in the home of her known brother Isaac Wells in Johnson Co IN; their other known brother William is living in Bartholomew County. In 1812 militia, Joseph Wells (son of Benjamin b 1760 PA) serves with Joseph and Jesse Spurgin. I think these are the known son and known grandson of William Spurgin the loyalist soldier; they settled in Washington Co, IN and it appears that some of their children migrated to Putnam Co.
I am trying to link these two known Pennsylvania Wells families with my own known Pennsylvania Wells family (they keep showing up in the same places and there are a lot of courthouse fires impeding our search) and am interested in the Spurgin connection. Does anyone have information about a possible marriage (probably in early Kentucky) between Sarah Wells and ? Spurgin. Can anyone fill me in on the Spurgins of Putnam Co? Are they related to the Spurgins of early Washington Co? Grateful for any information.
