John and Mary Springer...parents of Isaac born 1860/1 One answer
is John SPRINGER ended up in Dayton, Tippecanoe,In. and married Mary
Hessian there in 1860...returned home to Matamoras (New Matamoras
??) before son Isaac was born 1861 Feb. 1865 he and a cousin Jonas
SPRINGER volunteered for Union Army...John (Jno.) died of Typhoid
Nov.1865 near Macon...body later moved to Andersonville cemetary...
Mary supposedly remarried (Wilson??) Isaac ended up in Pasadena
Calif. about 1885 and wouldn't talk about his early life... Another
John is in Monior township 1850 census with an 11 year old son
John...1840 census for Monior has Jno Springer household with male
son under 5 years... I need any/all records of these people...my
guess is that Mary Hessian Springer returned to Dayton, Indiana
after John's death and remarried...leaving Isaac to deal with a step

Would like the parents of William WHEELER and Caroline BALDWIN.
Caroline born 12 Dec 1828 Portage County, OH. Only clue on 2nd
marriage license showed father was a Henry BALDWIN. She may also be
the daughter of Eliakim Baldwin and Harriet Perkins. Caroline
married William Wheeler 4 May 1844 in Portage County, OH. Wm was
born 11 Apr 1818. They moved to Solon, Cuy, OH 1846-48. About 1853
to Hopkins Twp, Allegan, MI. Neighbor was Samuel S Baldwin who could
have been a brother of Caroline, she may have also been the sister
of Henry Baldwin who resided in Solon Cuyahoga, OH in 1850. Wm
Wheeler was a minister of the Disciples of Christ Church. Caroline
(Baldwin) Wheeler married 2nd Perry J Cleveland 26 Jan 1893 in

Wm born 11 Apr 1818 Portage County, OH married 4 May 1844 Portage
County Caroline born 12 Dec 1828 Portage. Only census record I have
found where Caroline Baldwin fits is Eliakim and Harriet (PERKINS)
BALDWIN. Eliakim built the 1st dam in Aurora and they have lots of
children. Some of their children may have been Caroline, SAMUEL S,
and HENRY BALDWIN. Does anyone know the children of Eliakim and
Harriet? William W Wheeler could have been the son the Oliver
WHEELER or Frederick WHEELER. He fits age wise into both families.
Family rumor states my next step back I should find that one the of
mother's of either Wm or Caroline (Baldwin) Wheeler was American
I am seeking information about the family of Ferdinand and Anna
Eva (KENDAL) CREQUE. Ferdinand was born October 1808 in France and

interest in this family is in determining whether or not Ferdinand's
line is related to the line of Johannes CRIQUI/GRIGGY, my
3g-grandfather. More detailed information on both families is
