Greetings! I am searching for any information on some great uncles of mine
with the surname SPEARS. The two brothers were Samuel A. and Lover L. SPEARS,
both of who were born in Allen County Kentucky, in 1854 and 1866 respectively.
Their parents were William Walter SPEARS and Lucinda J. Eskew, of Allen Co.,
KY. They both died in Weatherford, Parker County, Lover in or around 1912.
This is all I know on these men, but do have more on the other children and
parents. Their siblings were Elizabeth, Fountain j., Granville J., Edward
s., Virgil B., Squire B. and Palmyra THURMAN. If these folks look familiar,
please let me know. Thanks, Doyle
