Hello Southern Illinos Cousins, I was able to spend about 4 hours in the library in Marion,Illinois last Monday. This one may be a repent but here goes: Williamson Co. Il. Census 1850: Seth Bell 43 M Farming N.C. Naoma Bell 33 F. Tenn. Moses W.Bell 8 M IL. John J. 5 M IL. Seth A. Bell 2 M IL. Moses W.Springs 74 M Farming N.C. * I bet this is our Moses W. father of Benjamin Springs! Then I found a book called: Personal Memoirs of Jas.W.Turner: Mr. Turner was a teacher and Secretary at Williamson Co. meetings. In this book he lists teachers from the meeting of 1882. There is a Monroe Springs and a T.B.Springs . Also in this book he calls a section : Leading Families: " Among the pupils who attended my schools at No. 9 were the Dutys,the Welborns,the Lakeys, the Allens, the Enochs, the Fullers, the Keltons,VanCleves,Shaws,O'Neals,Tidwells,Thompsons,and various branches of the Springs and Parks families,and my brothers". I attended Bethel Baptist church and visited the graves of my gt-grandparents and others. A blessed fourth of July to all my cousins! Sincerely, Gloria B.
