      • Biography of Jacob SPRINGER-[993]
      History of Belmont & Jefferson Counties

      By J. A. Caldwell F#896779

      Pg 575 Springfield Twp. Pioneers

      In mentioning the names of the first settlers of Springfield, we wish to say that our information is from memory of the oldest living settlers. Solomon Miller, from Fayette county, PA, settled in 1800, and was one of the first prominent settlers within the present limits of this township. He settles on section 10, but being too poor to buy the section, and nothing less at the time could be entered, after having lived two years on it, and made considerable improvements, the section was entered by Henry Miser in 1802, and Mr. Miller was dispossessed, and had to commence anew on section 11. In 1801 Stewart McClave settled on section six, and from 1801 to 1806 came John Stutz, Joseph Gorden, Jacob SPRINGER, Thomas Peterson, James Allman, Henry ISINOGLE, George ALBAUGH, James Rutledge, Mr. Davidson, Mr. Wells, Robert Young, Adley Calhoon and son, William S. Jenkins, James Campbell, S. Dorrance, Philip Burgett and several others, whose names we are unable to obtain, but all of these old settlers have passed away and almost forgotten, but the noble deeds of these old fathers should be perpetuated, and their hardships recorded that they may live in the remembrance of posterity.

      • He has conflicting birth information of 1750.
