    *Phoebe Angeline Springer

    In the 1860 Wetzel County, WV census, she is listed as Angeline. In the 1870 census, she is Phoebe A. In 1880, she is Sebe A. In the last,1880, she is 23 years old. The Wetzel County marriage record of Seba Springer, 24, and John C. Wiley, 26, on 16 June 1881 is surely Phoebe Angeline. More proof would be welcome.
