Springers in Uniontown

My great Grandfather Thurman Springer was from Uniontown. Graduated W&J College in 1906 then got his masters degree in mining engineering. When he died in 1962 he left 1/4 of his estate to his brother Max Springer of Uniontown. Thurman owned a coal mine in Canonsburg, Pa. As I was bartending in the 1980s I would often come across oldtimers that worked for him and they all swore that he was the meanest man to walk the earth. Consequentially, the remaining 3/4 of his estate is and will remain in Mellon Bank forever with the yearly interest being given to W&J College. He sort of took it with him. Hope this helps.
