Biography of Moses Springer, M. P. P.

If there is a self made, self educated man, in the Town of Waterloo, that man is Moses Springer, who never had a year’s schooling in his life, who was left an orphan at ten years of age, and thrown entirely upon his own resources. He was a son of Benjamin Springer, merchant, and, afterwards, farmer, and Mary Rykeman, a prominent member of the Mennonite church, and was born in the Township of Waterloo, within five miles of where he now lives, on August 21, 1824. His father was born near Poughkeepsie, New York, and died of the cholera, at Blenheim, County of Oxford, in 1834. His great-grandfather was from Stockholm, Sweden. He studied for the ministry, went to London, England, to complete his theological studies, against his father’s wishes, crossed the ocean, to Delaware, then called New Sweden, built the first church in Wilmington, a stone structure, which is still standing, and preached there for some years. The grandfather of our subject, Rev. David Springer, born in Wilmington, was an Episcopal minister, and a loyalist, and was shot in his own yard, near Poughkeepsie, soon after the Revolutionary war broke out. As good luck would have it, Moses early fell into the hands of a Mennonite preacher, Joseph Hagey, a noble souled man, by whom he was reared. Not satisfied with the little knowledge he had picked up,...
