Re: Welcome to SPURLIN@onelist.com
- Hi all,
Looking for proof, and not just guess-work or assumtions. I've seen
enough of that over the years. I'm sure y'all have, too.
My Spurlin(g) line came out of Surry and Alleghany Co., NC.
It is as follows:
Zachariah Spurlin m. ???
Mary m. William Moxley
Zachariah m. Susannah Wagoner
Adam m. Jane Edwards
John m. Mary Crouse
Verna m. Garvie Killon
Eulalie m. Ray Chapel

- Looking for Virginia connection of James Spurling born perhaps 1700. Placed
in gaol in Maryland, escaped and was apprehended in New Hampshire 1728, and
supposedly extradited back. Thhere is a James Spurling in Newcastle,New
Hampshire. 1728 chuck. Perhaps the beginning of Doeneast Spurling clan.
I've been trying to post a message to the list, but unsuccessfully. The
introduction still says 'you are not a member.....'
I'm leaving home for a week, so instead will copy it herewith:
Hello Spurlin 'cousins'. I'm new to the list, having just retired and
time to work on the boxes of family stuff that has accumulated over the
I'm from a west coast branch, my lineage:
Jesse Spurling b. VA 1864
Jesse Spurling b. VA 1894
Jonas Spurlin b. OH 1827
Henderson Spurlin b. IN Shelby Co. IN 1851
Otis Bedney "O.B." Sperlin b. Howard County IN about 1878
Robert Benton Sperlin b. Tacoma, WA 1909 (my dad)
I've recently returned from a trip to Shelby County, IN where I gathered
information I could on Spurlins and related families. I saw the land
children of the 'second' Jesse settled in the 1830's. Their descendants
number in the hundreds by now. I've put together most of the original
and some of their descendants, but there are still numerous loose ends
So I'd love to share information with others working in the same area.
Finally, I owe great thanks to Wm. Garard who has compiled much about
branch and gave me a fabulous jump-start. I'm now able to add some to
mation and would welcome questions or info sharing with other Sperlins
Indiana roots. I'll continue my work until I'm confident that it is
as complete as possible before broadcasting it, however.
By the way, about 1900 my granddad saw the mis-spelling 'Sperlin'
1850 census and concluded that it was the 'right' way to spell our name,
descendants and those of one of his brothers became 'Sperlin'.
Hope to hear from some of you. I suspect those Virginia roots tie
many branches of Spurlins throughout the country.
