Who are they?

Dennis Springer and Ann Prickett married 29 November 1736 in Burlington Co., New Jersey. By 1753 the family was living on Back Creek which was then in Frederick County, Virginia. Back Creek is now located in Berkeley County, West Virginia. Dennis Springer's Will is located in Will Book One of Frederick County. The Will was present 8 August 1760 and does name all of his eleven children.

During the following decade his children attained adulthood, married and started families. These Springers moved onto the western frontier. They located first in western Virginia, present day Fayette Co., Pennsylvania and what are now the counties of Monongalia and Marion in West Virginia. In the years that followed the Springers continued into Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and ever westward.

Dennis Springer had the following children. Our Springer family research group has been collecting, and correcting, data for nearly 20 years now on these individuals, and all their descendants.
