well, Ive exchanged a few emails with her, shes into the DNA stuff. I told her that i didnt know anything about DNA. but she said that the trees and stuff she builds on the springers are what she finds on ancestry. She uses that to keep track of the Springer families to see what lines they came from.

Does anyone recommend a DNA kit? Im looking to get tested for my Fathers side and my Mothers side.... Also a question, My grandmother on my moms side was adopted, Would the DNA help me find a real surname for my grandmother?

Regimental History
Pennsylvania
MILITIA OF 1862.


THE rebel army had no sooner achieved its triumph in the second
battle Bull Run, than it hastened northward, and commenced
crossing the Potomac. The southern border of Pennsylvania lay
in close proximity, all unprotected, and by its rich harvests
invited invasion.

The Reserve Corps which was originally organized for the State
defense, had been called away to the succor of the hard pressed
army of McClellan upon the Peninsula, and was now upon the
weary march, with ranks sadly thinned in the hard fought
battles of Mechaniceville, Gaines' Mill' Charles City Cross
Roads, and the second Bull Run, to again meet the foe, but
powerless to avert the threatened danger.

The result of the struggle on the plains of Manassas, was no
sooner known, than the helpless condition of the State, which
had been apparent from the first, became a subject of alarm.
On the 4th of September, Governor Curtin issued a proclamation,
calling on the people to arm, and prepare for defense. He
recommended the immediate formation of companies and regiments
throughout the Commonwealth, and, for the purpose of drill and
instruction, that after three P. M., of each day, all business
houses be closed.

On the 10th, the danger having become imminent, the enemy being
already in Maryland, he issued a general order, calling on all
able bodied men to enroll immediately for the defense of the
State, and to hold themselves in readiness to march upon an
hour's notice; to select officers, to provide themselves with
such arms as could be obtained, with sixty rounds of ammunition
to the man, tendering arms to such as had none, and promising
that they should be held for service, for such time only as the
pressing exigency for State defense should continue.

On the following day, acting under authority of the President
of the United States, the Governor called for fifty thousand
men, directing them to report by telegraph for orders to move,
and adding that further calls would be made as the exigencies
should require.

The people everywhere flew to arms, and moved promptly to the
State Capital. One regiment and eight companies were sent
forward during the night of the 12th, and others followed as
fast as they could be organized.

On the 14th, the head of the Army of the Potomac met the enemy
at South Mountain, and hurled him back through its passes, and
on the evening of the 16th, and day of the 17th, a fierce
battle was fought at Antietam.

In the meantime, the militia had rapidly concentrated at
Hagerstown and Chambersburg, and General John F. Reynolds, who
was at the time commanding a corps in the Army of the Potomac,
had assumed command.

Fifteen thousand men were pushed forward to Hagerstown and
Boonsboro, and a portion of them stood in line of battle in
close proximity to the field, in readiness to advance, while
the fierce fighting was in progress.

Ten thousand more were posted in the vicinity of Greencastle
and Chambersburg, and "about twenty thousand," says Governor
Curtin, in his annual message, " were at Harrisburg, on their
way to Harrisburg, or in readiness and waiting for
transportation to proceed thither.

The Twenty-fifth regiment, under command of Colonel Dechert, at
the request of General Halleck, was sent to the State of
Delaware, to guard the Dupont Powder Mills, whence the National
armies were principally supplied.

But the enemy was defeated at Antietam, and retreated in
confusion across the Potomac. The emergency having passed, the
militia regiments were ordered to return to Harrisburg, and in
accordance with the conditions on which they had been called
into service, they were, on the 24th, mustered out and
disbanded.

The train on which the Twentieth regiment was returning over
the Cumberland Valley Road, collided, when nearing Harrisburg,
with one passing in the opposite direction, by which four men
were killed and thirty injured.

In a letter addressed to Governor Curtin, by General McClellan,
thanking him for his energetic action in calling out the
militia, and placing them in the field, the General adds;
"Fortunately, circumstances rendered it impossible for the
enemy to set foot upon the soil of Pennsylvania, but the moral
support rendered to my army by your action, was none the less
mighty. In the name of my army, and for myself, I again tender
to you our acknowledgments for your patriotic course. The
manner in which the people of Pennsylvania responded to your
call, and hastened to the defense of their frontier, no doubt
exercised a great influence upon the enemy."

In an order issued by Governor Bradford, of Maryland, soon
after the battle, he says: "To Governor Curtin, of
Pennsylvania, and the militia of his State, who rallied with
such alacrity at the first symptoms of an invasion, our warmest
thanks are also due. The readiness with which they crossed the
border, and took their stand beside the Maryland brigade, shows
that the border is, in all respects, but an ideal line, and
that in such a cause as now unites us, Pennsylvania and
Maryland are but one."

Prior to 1850, censuses only listed heads of household names, not family members. Reference the following census for Joshua.

1840 census for Joshua Springer, son of Thomas
Name: Joshua Springer
Township: East Caln
County: Chester
State: Pennsylvania
