South Carolina Department of Archives and History

Consider Walter Holmes's land records as described in the two deed abstracts from Brent Holcomb's book on Union County, SC, deeds. Then look at the land grant that Walter Holmes received in Berkley County, SC (South Carolina Archives and History source). Then consider this deed abstract also from Brent Holcomb's book:

Lease and release. 11 & 12 Jan 1787, Obediah Howard of Union County, to Zachariah Bell Senr of same, for L75 sterling, tract of land where John Springer now lives, 150 acres being part of 450 acres granted to said Obediah Howard by SC 23 June 1774. Obediah Howard (seal) Prisilla Howard (mark) (seal), Wit: John Ewart, John McCooll, Joseph Jones. Recorded 26 March 1787. (Brent Holcomb, Union County, South Carolina Deed Abstracts; Vol 1, Deed Books A-F, Columbia, SC: SCMAR, 1998, p. 26).

Now if John Springer was living on Obediah Howard's land, and Obediah Howard owned land adjacent to Walter Holmes, maybe Walter Holmes and John Springer lived on adjoining property.This might increase the likelihood that John Springer was Walter Holmes's father-in-law.

John Springer, SC Received SC land grant 1786. Is mentioned several times in Union Co. Court records 1787-1797, including the purchase of land from Jonas Little and wife Rebecca 7 Sept 1795.

Union Co SC Deed Book I pg 460: One day after date I promise to pay John Springer Sen'r $70 for value rec'd of him, 7 Jan 1808. John Springer (mark). Wit: Aron Springer, Zach'r Belew.

Wit: Aron Springer, Zach'r Belew. Recorded 28 May 1808.

Union Co SC 17 April 1817 John Springer made oath and proved the deed transferring land from Rachel Paulk, et al, to Joshua Paulk.

the most important thing is the Our Springer were Baptist

Signed by Raney Belew. Recorded 8 May 1829.

[Raney Belew likely married Dennis and Peggy's daughter, Elizabeth Springer in Union Co., SC . Raney Belew was granted this track in 1818 on the first day the land office was open. Dennis may have been living on the track since he moved to Lauderdale Co., about 1820. Physical ly, this land was south of the State line and the John Johnston [later Samuel Carter Johnston ] land to the northeast which abutted both the stateline and Second Creek. Today state road s AL101/TN 227 aproximate the point at which the two tracts may have shared a common corner.]

Lauderdale Co., AL Deed Bk. 12, p. 620 [Barnett] Deed of Conveyance dated 20 Oct 1849 entere d by John Springer, or McNairy Co., TN, sold Jesse McMillian for $110.00 the NW quartersectio n of Section 3, T1, R8 west, bounded as follows: beginning at the southwest corner of said qu arter section at the half-mile stake, thence east 90 poles, thence north to the state line, t hence west to the mile stake, thence south to the beginning. 92acres more or less. Recorde d 20 Oct 1849. Signed by John Springer.

[John Springer, father of Thomas Springer of Conway, AR, is reported in Goodspeed {Faulkner C o., AR} to have died in Mississippi in 1864 - perhaps Tishomingo County, though that is not recorded. Thomas Springer returned to Lawrence Co., TN north of his father's and grandfather' s track after the Civil War and married Mary (Harwell) the widow of William K, Johnston, who died a POW in Civil War. Upon her death in about 1867 he remarried and later moved to Arkansas.]

Now what I am wondering where did Dennis Springer get this land to sale? Did he inherit from a family member?

In the book “UNION COUNTY,SOUTH CAROLINA MINUTES OF THE COUNTY COURT 1785-1795”

On 1787 A Deed of Conveyance from Joseph Jones to John Springer for three hundred and forty acres of land acknowledged by the said Joseph Jones and Ordered to be recorded

In the same book there is mention of this “It is ordered that John Birdsong, Thomas Blasingame Esquires, Samuel Jackson and John Springer lay out a road from Jordon Jackson to William Plummers ford on Fairforest by Renney Ballaws Joseph Littles and there to Union Court House and make their report to our next court.”

Facts about Uriah Springer. I have copy of his will. His wife was Margaret and children were George, Adam, David, Mary and Eve Porter. Dated 1800 witness was John Bullock. Orange County North Carolina wills Volume 4 Nov 1793-Nov 1800 by Loura Wills

In the book “UNION COUNTY,SOUTH CAROLINA MINUTES OF THE COUNTY COURT 1785-1795”

On 1787 A Deed of Conveyance from Joseph Jones to John Springer for three hundred and forty acres of land acknowledged by the said Joseph Jones and Ordered to be recorded

I wonder if the said land that Dennis sold could be the land or near the same land mention above? For the same man are mention too here.

2. Mary Ann JOHNSTON born on Dec 4 1826 in Lawrence County, Tennessee. She died on May 2 1895 in San Lucas, Monterey County, California and was buried in May 1895 in San Lucas, Monterey County, California.

The grand-daughter of Mary Ann Johnston (Lillian Gibson Winter) wrote a letter in 1964 to her nieces and nephews. That letter is quoted below: "VIVID RECOLLECTIONS OF WHAT I WAS TOLD AND OF WHAT I LEARNED BY BEING A MEMBER OF THE GIBSON FAMILY". My grandfather, Joseph Gibson, was born in 1813 in Kingston, Arkansas. He married, but his wife passed on leaving him with several children, my father, George L Gibson, being one of the youngest. My grandmother, Mary Ann Johnston, was born in Tennessee, was married there and came to Kingston to live. Her husband, Mr. James Madison Basham passed on and left her with four small children, my mother being the oldest. These two families were united by the marriage of my father's father and my mother's mother. When my father was 16 years old, the Civil War broke out, and he was called to the Southern Army, since he lived in the South. He served four years, and on June 8, 1865 received his parole at Shreveport, Louisiana. (May I express my gratitude here for the fact that my father was never critical of the North, not bitter, but always taught us that Lincoln was right and was the greatest President that we ever had; and that if Lincoln had lived, the condition of the South would have been very different.) When he returned home, he married my mother and settled in a small cottage near my grandfather's home. This home was a large two story log house built with a large open porch, both sides open, separating the living quarters from the kitchen, each section having its huge fireplace. My mother had five children. After the first two, James and Thomas were born in the small cottage, for some reason the family moved to Texas, where Lola was born. After they came back to the cottage I was born. Grandmother broke her arm so the family moved into the big log house with my grandfather, where Joe was born. A little clear stream flowed across the property, near the house. At that time refrigeration was unknown, but a spring house, with two floors, was built over a bubbling spring. The lower part had no floor. Our milk, vegetables, and all perishable foods were put in closed containers and lowered into the cold water for preservation. On the second floor were stored sacks of wheat and shelled corn, to be hauled to Kingston later for grinding into flour and meal. The sugar cane was fed between two wooden rollers and the juice coming from it was boiled down and formed our sorghum, unrefined syrup. There were rows of gooseberries, strawberry beds, sweet potatoes, fruit trees and vegetables. Several black walnut trees and chinquapins, a form of chestnut, provided us with nuts. Our meat was almost entirely pork and chicken, which we raised. A smoke house was built, the pork was cut up into hams and smaller pieces, with plenty of sausage. Plenty of lard was made also for the year's uses. All was smoked and seasoned by wood fires. We lived bountifully, buying only coffee, condiments, sugar and some other small articles. The little stream had a black slate bed. A substance like chalk washed down from the mountains. It was soft, brilliant in color, red, yellow, etc; and we children loved to gather there and draw pictures on the dry spots of slate. My mother's brother, John P Basham, lived in Carroll County, Missouri. His wife’s mother was very frail and so was my grandmother, Mary Ann Johnston, who was troubled with a broken arm. My grandfather, Joseph Gibson, had two daughters who had married and gone to California by wagon train. They urged us to come also, so, when Joe Gibson was one month old, thirty relatives gathered together, met in Purdy, Missouri, chartered a railroad car, bringing nothing but personal belongings and started for California. As a child of six, I was excited about going to California, and my only regret in leaving Arkansas was when I climbed up into the big wagon to go to Purdy with my precious kitten in my arms, I was told that I would have to part with her, as she couldn't be taken on the trip. That was very hard to bear. Our family of five children, James, Thomas, Lola, Joseph and myself with our parents and grandparents, making a family of nine, finally reached the Indian Valley, Monterey County, California, where one of grandfather's daughters lived. We bought a home there and stayed a few years. We older children trudged two and one-half miles through the dust to the county school. We moved from there to San Felipe and Gilroy near Hollister. Here Lola began to prepare to be a teacher, and went to San Jose for a period to study. After she received her certificate she worked as an assistant to the principal at San Felipe. She also taught in Hames Valley, Monterey County. After I received my certificate we both taught in San Lucas in their two room school, she having the upper grades.

He was a Confederate soldier and died in a Union prison in Lafayette, Indiana. He was truly an unknown soldier, likely entered along with others who like him had suffered 20 days and nights of unparalleled exposure, sleeping out in the rain several days before reaching Donelson, spending some four days at Donelson, also without shelter and three days and nights on an open boat enroute to Cairo, Illinois. One prisoner is quoted as saying "our suffering continued until we reached Indianapolis. This exposure sowed the seeds of death in the vitals of many of us." The healthy prisoners, among them likely William's brother Samuel C were all transferred to Camp Morton in Indianapolis on March 16, 1862. William K did not make the trip.

WILLIAM HAMM BIBLE PAGE

(Bible published 1849)

copied by: Sybil Hamm Taylor

The Bible is in the possession of Sybil Hamm Taylor, a direct of William Hamm. It is believed that the person who wrote the old William Hamm bible was Calvin or Emilla Hamm.. It was done all about the same time and I believe that it was done right after 1866 and before the deaths of either William or Rachel Hamm.

The last entry in this bible was in 1866 and most of it was done in a beautiful script. I assume that the person responsible for these entries died or moved at that time. I have always thought that Calvin Hamm b. 1820 or his wife Millian (Milly Ann) Springer is the writer and I know they left Izard Co., Arkansas and returned to McNairy Co., Tenn. about that time.

I have copy of the following books on the family: "DELAWARE BIBLE RECORDS VOL 6" by LU VERNE V. HALL,A "CALENDAR OF DELWARE WILLS NEW CASTLE COUNTY 1682-1800" by HISTORICAL RESEARCH , 1693 CENSUS OF SWEDEN CHURCH on the Charles Springer and family and List of Springer in the DAR.
