I'm looking for info on Joe SPANGLER born ~1885-1886 place unknown. He married 1st Becky TAYLOR 06 Oct 1904 in Madison Co., AL. They had 2 children Ernest (my grandfather) born ~1905 in Madison Co., AL and Annie born 22 Feb 1907 in Madison Co., AL. Joe and Becky separated/divorced sometime before 1910. At that time Becky and the children were living with her sister, Martha (TAYLOR) ATCHLEY in the Owens Crossroads area of Madison Co., AL. Becky died 09 Apr 1912 in Madison Co., AL. Joe abandoned his children, and married Lela EDWARDS 16 Jun 1912 in Morgan Co., AL. They had one daughter Mary Jane 11 Nov 1913. Around that same time he may have had an illegitmate daughter by Clara NORTON. Her name was Nora Mae SPANGLER, and she was born ~1913 probably in Madison, Morgan, or Marshall Co., AL.

Ernest and Annie were tossed around from home to home. Ernest unofficially changed his surname to IVEY. I believe this may be because could have lived with his maternal aunt, Emma (TAYLOR) ATCHLEY. He also lived with Dave and Frances EDWARDS in 1920 and Harry BAKER (who married Clara's maternal aunt) either before or after 1920. Morgan Co., AL. Ernest married Lucy Lee SLATER 26 May 1940 in Morgan Co., AL. They lived lived in Morgan and Limestone Cos., AL where he died in 1978. Annie supposedly ran off to FL and married at age 13 or 14 to whom, where, and when not known. She was also married Alonzo Leslie "Les" ECHOLS ~1938-1940 and also to Olen FITE sometime around 1956. She died in 1980 in Morgan Co. AL. Mary Jane married Walter Taft McCUTCHEON. She died in 1977 in Madison Co., AL. Nora was "unofficially" adopted by her maternal grandmother and step-grandfather John McVAY and Ada (McCUTCHEON) NORTON. She lived in the Union Grove area of Marshall Co., AL, perhaps Blount Co., AL, and possibly TX. She was married several times, the ones I know are Unknown Mr. SMITH, Fonda HARDY, Harry KILGORE, Unknown Mr. NORRIS, and Henry KRIKLAND, and William STOCKMAN. She died in 1986 in Marshall Co., AL

Joe SPANGLER may have had "run-ins with the law". Exactly when, where, and why I don't know. I haven't been able to find a criminal record for him. He died sometime ~1920-1930. He sent a message to Ernest that he wanted to meet with him. Joe was supposedly living near Florence or Muscle Shoals, AL. However, before Ernest could meet him, Joe was killed in an altercation. I can't find any record of this.

This is basically all of the info I have. If anyone has any information, or may have known any of the people (or their descendants) mentioned, please contact me. No piece of information is too small.
