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.

Your Grandfather

I mentioned your name to my dad and he knew all about your Grandfather. People called him J.D. and he had a brother Max I believe and was 1/2 brother with my Great Grandfather Thurman. My dad was real excited and would be happy to talk to you. Email me at CoachSpringer@gmail.com and I'll give you the details. I think he said he worked on J.D.s farm as a kid. He also knew of your father. There was a Maxine inthere as well. My dad has it all straight. I hope you see this soon.
