Greeley, Colo., Aug. 25 -- While looking over old documents given by her
mother years ago, Mrs. Anna E. Foster, wife of a farmer northeast of here
today found evidence sufficient, it is believed, to establish her claim to a
share of the estate of Nathan Springer, which includes valuable land in the
Shenandoah valley of Virginia, and part of the site of Wilmington, Del. The
document shows that these properties were leased by Nathan Springer for 39
years at a nominal rent, and that the lease is about to expire. Mrs.
Foster's maiden name was Johnson and her mother's was Lydia Springer. The
latter was a grandchild of Nathan Springer one of the wealthiest plantation
owners in Wes. Virginia. The vast Springer estate fell into disuse during
the Civil war and after that much of it was abandoned. The property today
covered by the lease is now valued at ten million dollars and Mrs. Foster,
with other grandchildren and great grandchildren hope to prove their claim
to the estate. --Humbold Union.
Mrs. E. Songer and Mrs. Frank Bulick, of this city, are
great-grandchildren of the deceased mentioned above and will share with
other great-grand-children in the division of the large Springer estate as
soon as a settlement can be made.
