Luckily our Lake County GenWeb page has a bit to offer. I found your family
listed on the 1850 census, shows Abraham being born in NY so you might check
there for a birthplace. You might also check the Ohio 1840 census, thoughit
only gives head of household, since a few of their children seem to havebeen
born there.

ABRAHAM SPENCER MARRIED TO OLIVE PREMER, 20 MARCH 1852

HISTORY OF ABE & DI.
FROM WHAT I'VE PUT TOGETHER, IT GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
ABE & DI WERE BOTH BORN IN NEW YORK, IN 1792, AND 1794. ABOUT 1812
THEY MARRIED IN NEW YORK, BUT SOMETIME BETWEEN 1812, AND 1814 THEY MOVEDTO
VENICE, OHIO. DID THEY MOVE TO OHIO ALONE, OR WITH OTHER FAMILYMEMBERS IS NOT
KNOWN, BUT THERE ARE SPENCER'S AND CRIPPEN'S ON THE 1830HURON CO., OHIO CENSUS.
SO IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEIR FAMILIES, (BOTHSPENCER AND CRIPPEN) CAME TO OHIO
FROM NEW YORK.
ABE AND DI STAYED IN OHIO, AND RAISED THEIR FAMILY, UNTIL ABOUT
1842. SOMETIME BETWEEN 1842 AND 1845 THEY MOVED TO ILLINOIS. IT IS
NOT KNOWN WHERE FOR SURE, BUT POSSIBLY COOK CO.
WHY THEY MOVED TO ILLINOIS IS NOT KNOWN FOR SURE, BUT ACCORDING TO
OTHERSOURCES HE HAD A GREAT UNCLE IN ILLINOIS

AHYMIZ SPENCER

THAT DIED IN 1831. AHYMIZ'S WIFE (MARY WETMORE) DIED IN SPENCERTOWN, NEWYORK IN
1764 SO HE MUST HAVE LEFT FOR ILLINOIS SOMETIME AFTER HER DEATH.HE MAY HAVE
REMARRIED PRIOR TO, OR AFTER MOVING TO ILLINOIS, AND STARTEDANOTHER FAMILY, AND
THAT MAY BE WHAT DREW ABE TO ILLINOIS.

SOMETIME BETWEEN 1845 AND 1847, FOR WHATEVER THE REASON, ABE AND DI MOVEDTO,
AND SETTLED IN HOBART, INDIANA. FROM WHAT I DEDUCT, THEY BROUGHT ALLTHEIR
CHILDREN WITH THEM TO HOBART, INDIANA

A note from another website - Abraham may have served in the War of 1812:
From the website:
My Diadama Crippen is the person I am trying to connect to Darius andAbegail (STEVENS) CRIPPEN.
Do you have her name in your records? Shemarried Abraham SPENCER in OH abt. 1812/13. He served
in the War of 1812from Ross county, OH. I have not found a marriage record for them exceptin the family
bible. They lived in Muskingum, Perry, Seneca, Huron, andErie cos. in OH before moving to Lake county,
IN where both are buried inOld Blake Cemetery in Porter Co, IN.

APPENDIX

THE CARLTON THANKSGIVING STORY

OUR MAYFLOWER PILGRIM ANCESTORS

THE PILGRIMS

The Pilgrims were a small band of people who came to North America forreligious freedom. Their
beginnings came when the Bible was translatedinto English from Latin between 1557 and 1560. Early in
1557 they beganto hold religious services on their own, instead of with the Church ofEngland, and they

be came known as Separatists or Brownists. Later theybecame known as the Pilgrims. Laws were
passed to imprison anyone who didnot attend the Church of England, with the requirement that they
conformwithin three months following their imprisonment or leave the country.Refusal to conform was to
result in death. This caused some of thePilgrims to move to Holland but they remained loyal to England.
Theybecame concerned that their children were losing the ability to speakEnglish and were marrying into
Dutch
families so the group requested permission from King James of England tosettle in the Virginia Colony
and, although they were refused theprotection of the English flag, the King agreed not to molest them.

THE FULLERS

On September 16, 1620 the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth for Virginiawith 104 passengers, including
our ancestors Edward and Ann Fuller andtheir eight year old son Samuel (who is also our ancestor). On
November11th the ship anchored in Cape Cod Harbor at Long Point off the presentsite of Provincetown.
On November 21st the members of the Company met inthe cabin of the Mayflower and drew up the
document known as theMayflower Compact. This document has become famous as the document
thatestablished the foundations of civil and religious liberty for the UnitedStates of America. The
Mayflower Compactestablished the first governmentformed by the consent of those governed and 150
years later it formed thefoundation of Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence as well asthe
Constitution of the United
States. It was signed by our ancestor Edward Fuller.

Edward and Ann were among the original Pilgrims who died during thehorrible first winter of 1620-1621.
Twelve of the sixteen mothers andthirteen of the twenty five fathers who arrived on the Mayflower
diedthat winter. They were probably buried in the unmarked mound that thePilgrims made so that the
Indians would not know how many had died. Manyof these remains were later removed to the Pilgrim
Sarcophagus inPlymouth, Massachusetts and it is likely that Edward and Ann's remainsare among them.
The marble sarcophagus now sits in a hilltop parkoverlooking Plymouth Harbor. Edward Fuller's name is
engraved on the tomb.

After his parents died, Samuel Fuller was raised by his Uncle, Dr. SamuelFuller, at Plymouth. One
account says that Captain Miles Standishperformed his marriage to Jane Lothrop in 1635.

Our ancestor is their son Little John Fuller who was born about 1656 inBarnstable, Massachusetts. When
John's father, the Mayflower PilgrimSamuel, died his will left John "4 acres of marsh, 3 year old
horserunning in woods, dwellinghouse, orchyard, and all out housing, theindian Jaell, a cart, plow, tooles,
one fatt cow, my bald faced horse, mygreat bible, and one third of the other cattle."

Our ancestor is Little John's daughter Thankful.

THE CRIPPENS

Thankful Fuller married Jabez Crippen in 1701. Jabez was the son ofPilgrims Thomas and Frances
Crippen, who immigrated from England to thePlymouth Colony before 1665. Around 1680 they helped
found East Haddam,Connecticut. Jabez became the original proprietor of the town of Sharon,Connecticut.
In 1752 he took his five sons and founded Crippentown justacross the present state line near Amenia,
New York. For unknown reasons,the town failed and they returned to Sharon within a few years.
Jabezlived to be 105, thus becoming the oldest of our known ancestors.


Our ancestor is Jabez and Thankful's son Samuel Crippen who was born in1724. He was a carpenter
and he married Keziah Alger when he was only 18or 19 years old. During 1759 and 1760 Samuel and his
son Samuel wereBritish irregulars who were involved in the conquest of Quebec. He latermoved to
Vermont.

His son Darius Crippen was born in 1749 and was a British Loyalist hisentire life. He married Abigail
Stevens in 1776 when both families werefighting for the British against the rebels who were attempting to
breakaway to start the United States of America. After the war therevolutionaries began to persecute
those who had supported the British,so Darius and Abigail had to move to Lower Canada (now known as
Ontario).When Darius drowned in 1808 Abigail went to New York to live with one ofher sons.

Darius and Abigail's son Samuel Crippen (of Hope) was born in 1782. Hewas a British Loyalist who joined
the British Army from 1812-1814 for theWar of 1812 against the United States.

Samuel and Ruth's son Jacob Crippen was born in 1815 in New York. He tookhis family to Wheat field,
Michigan, then Ohio, then Havana, Illinois by1851, then near Osceola, Iowa, then around 1870 to
Junction City, Kansas,and finally near Council Grove, Kansas.

Their son Reuben Crippen was born in 1841 in Ohio or Illinois. In 1853his family moved to Osceola, Iowa
and he grew up there. He was tall,about 5' 10", with a sandy complexion, brown eyes, black hair, and
healways had long reddish whiskers. He married Malinda Miler. They moved toLaPlatte, and then to Fort
Crook, Nebraska. Around 1894 he contractedtyphoid fever and moved to Missouri for his health. Hazel
VanBuskirkCrippen recalls him telling that they traveled in five covered wagonswith twelve horses, a cow,
chickens, and all their furniture, using atent for sleeping at night. They traveled for a few days, then
camped,cooked, and repaired so that they could travel for a few more
days. By 1912 Reuben and Malinda had returned from Missouri and wereliving just down the road from
their youngest son Edward and his wifeHazel. They would drive up the road each day to visit in their
blackhorse and buggy. On March 8, 1914, they drove up as usual and Reuben letMalinda out at the door
and drove the horse to the shade of the tree.When he didn't come back to the house, Malinda went out to
look and foundhim standing by the wheel of the buggy as if his coat was caught. He hada stroke and was
unable to talk. Ed came in from the field back of thehouse where he was cultivating corn, and they got
Reuben into the houseand into bed. There was an Army doctor who went by each day about 11:00and
Hazel went out to the road to stop him. He came in and checked Reubenand said he would not live
through the day. He died later that day. BothReuben and Malinda are buried in LaPlatte on a hill
overlooking thePlatte River.

Their son James Edward Crippen or Ed, as he was always known, was born in1886 in Nebraska. He was
5' 10" tall, with red hair and brown eyes. Hemarried Hazel Van Buskirk. Around 1916 they moved to
Wessington Springs,South Dakota. He was a butcher, and he installed the first freezer plantin the
Wessington Springs meat market. In 1922 they moved to a farm nearAlpena, where they spent the Great
Depression, until 1938.

Their daughter Hazel is our ancestor.
