Looking for information on Elihu Springer, who bought land in Perry County, Ind. in 1815; Joseph Springer, a Methodist minister, who bought land in Perry County in Dec 1814. Are they related? How? and do they connect to Susannah Jane Springer, who married John Cart about 1798 (place unknown, but probably N. Kentucky)? Have been dancing around these people for years without making any headway.

Susannah was born about 1777, allegedly in Virginia. Died 1842 in Perry County, Indiana and buried in Cart Family Cemetery. No info on birth or death of Elihu Springer or Joseph Springer. Are these folks related to the Springers of New Sweden on the Delaware?

Thanks for any help!
