I,m trying to find the father of Thomas since two of his neighbors in 1850 are related to my line from Ohio. My line went from Washington Co, Pa to Belmont co, Oh. to Wayne Co. Illinois.My gr grandfather married Mary Ann Spriggs in Belnont co.Of the two Spriggs neighbors to Thomas in Clark Co, Mo, one is Mary Ann's brother, the other, her newphew. They then went to Wayne Co, Ill.
Thomas R. (one researcher has Richardson) Spriggs married Luvenia A. Carlin, 11 Nov 1847 in St. Louis Co, Missouri. In 1850 next neighbors include William Carlin, 45 andSusan Carlin, 40. He from Va, she Pa. Also there is Thomas Carlin, 36, Va and his family including wife Jane, 22 Pa. Thomas married Jane Fee in Adams Co, Ill, which is across the Mississippi River from Clark, Co. Mo.I believe this is your family.
