Lernon & Mary Spriggs Family

The husband in this family has been listed in census and various records as Limon, Lemon, Lemmon, L. S., Lehman and Leman. I tried putting a copy of their marriage record at the top of this page, but it was too light to read. His name was spelled both Lehman and Leman in the one record! You can see it at under the name Leman Spriggs, using the marriage information listed below. My mother told me long ago his name was Lernon. I'll use that name unless I learn otherwise.
