Notes for Osborne Sprigg BELT

This child has been added to the children of Joseph and Anne Belt based on a report by Robert Kirkwood Belt, Sr. prepared in about 1960. A copy might be obtained from William P. Belt , 8521 Via Montoya, Scottsdale AZ 85255.

Note Mr Robert Kirkwood Belt advises that there is no record of the parentage of Osborne Sprigg Belt but that much evidence points to his being a son in this family. On the basis of Mr Robert K Belt, Osborne SPRIGG BELT has been added as a child of Joseph & Margery BELT.

Note that Beverly Watts of Willows CA advised see "REGISTER OF MARYLAND HERALDIC FAMILIES, page 63. Her note is under Osborn (e dropped) Sprigg Belt son of Jeremiah Belt and Mary Sprigg. He was born in 1755 in Leeland Prince Geogre's Co Md and died 1801. He married DRUSILLA. Their only child was Osborn Belt, Jr. who married Sarah Turner.

Of course this could be wrong and Osborn (e dropped) Belt, could be the same person shown by Mr Robert Kirkwood Belt, Sr. as the unproven child of Joseph Belt & Anne Sprigg. Problably not because of parent and spouse ties.

Not in Grandfather's (Joseph BELT) will. Would have only been about 2 yrs 2 months old.
Will of Joseph Belt, written written June 14, 1761, probated September 14, 1761. Maryland Will Book, Liber 31, Folio 414
