I have seen that same information before. In reviewing it last night I saw a couple of discrepancies. The William that they have marrying America Davenport I believe is incorrect. One of my problems is that my family is intermarried into a copy of these lines. William Springate married Dorcas Gritton (one of my g-aunts) according to the marriage records of Mercer Co KY. consent was given by Catherine Springate. The William Perry Springate that married America Davenport (another of my lines) was the son of John and Sarah Egbert Springate.(John is the brother of Ann). This marr. took place in 1829 Mercer Co KY. Twenty years later than when William and Dorcas were married. I have a marriage record for Margaret Springate, dau. of William Springate, married to William Davenport 16 May 1796, Mercer Co KY. This looks like a first marriage as she was 19yo at the time. Unfortunately even though this is one of the lines I am working on, I have not entered parents for William, don't know if I have them. Catherine McCibbon's first husband, Joseph Hannah, is also one of my lines. I also found a marriage for Jane Gritton, widow of John Gritton, married to John Springate, widower of Sarah Egbert, in 1841 Mercer Co KY. So even though I don't have a direct Springate line, the Davenport, Gritton, Goodnight, Hannah lines I am all directly related to. Becomes somewhat confusing at times. Hope to hear from you again. jane
