WILLIAM M. SPRINGER (deceased) was the son of Nathan U. Springer, a native of Pennsylvania, and Martha (Moore)
Springer, born in Virginia. William M. was born August 18, 1809, in Butler County, Ohio, and at the age of two
years moved with his parents to Franklin County, Ind.; he succeeded in obtaining a fair education, and at the age
of nineteen began the tanner's trade, which was completed with John Hendricks, father of the Hon. T. A. Hendricks.
Mr. S. was married, August 11, 1831, to Elizabeth Limps, a native of Indiana, and shortly moved to Shelby County,
Ind., in a densely wooded wilderness, where he worked at his trade, and cleared the farm from the woods. Mr. and
Mrs. Springer had twelve children - Nancy A., Elvira, John S. (who died in the service of his country), Levi L.,
Martha M., Lyda J., Lovisa (deceased), Mary E., Nathan U., Almira (deceased), Sarah E. (deceased), and Jennie F.
Jennie at present resides with her mother on the old homestead, and the rest of the children are married and comfortably
settled in life. Mr. Springer was elected Trustee of Shelby County, in an early day, and in 1873 came to this county,
where he lived an honest, upright life, being a friend to the poor, and a liberal giver to all public enterprises.
In early life, he was a Whig, but in later years was a strong advocate of Republican principles; he and wife became
members of the Separate Baptist Church over forty years ago.
