My ggggrandparents where Jacob Springer and Margaret (Peggy) Gregg of East Pike Run Twp., Washington County, PA. Information handed down to me from my grandmother, Olive Jane Springer Richardson, b.1871 in Washington County, PA, gives Jacob's birthplace as Wilmington, DE in 1750. Crumrine's History of Washington County mentions Jacob and Peggy as early residents of the county and has their son John married to Jane Newkirk. In Beers Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania in the biography of one Ella M. Gregg there is reference to both Jacob and Peggy coming from Ireland. So it's not clear if my Jacob Springer has any connection to the Delaware Springers. My information also includes Jacob J. Springer b. 1826 and grandson of the first Jacob Springer and Peggy Gregg. This second Jacob was a brother of my greatgrandfather Caleb Johnson Springer b. 1828 d.1892 and resident of East Pike Run Twp., Washington County PA.
What evidence does anyone have that shows the Delaware Springers coming to Washington County, PA?
