I have Jesse Durock Spence's parents as Jonathan Spence who was born 27 Sep 1856 in Grundy Co., MO & Ella Ann Wells was born 11 Feb 1861 in OR. They married 5 Apr 1885 at Elk River, Humboldt Co., CA. He died 9 Feb 1932 at Eureka, CA and Ella Wells Spence died 1 Nov 1947 in Eureka. They both are buried in the Ocean View Cemetery in Eureka, CA.
I found in the 1910 census of Hydesville, Humboldt Co., CA Jesse D. "Spenss" married to Bessie B. with a son, Clifton, who was 1 year old & born in CA. Jesse & Bessie had been married 3 years. Bessie was 22 years old and mother of 2 children, 1 child living.
Then in the 1920 census of Scotia, Humboldt Co., CA on page 41A, Clifton Spence, aged 11, living with his uncle & aunt, Harry E. & Louisa Look. (Nancy Louise Look's father's last name was "Ferrill" & her mother's maiden name was "Gehart".) She was born 12 Mar 1875 in OR and died 11 Jul 1950 in Humboldt Co., CA. Was she a sister to Clifton Spence's mother, Bessie B.?
In the 1930 census of Palo Alto, Santa Clara Co., CA, Clifton Spence is listed. He was 21 years old.
Would like to hear from you if you know more about Clifton and his mother! Thanks.
