SPIVEYS of Macon, Bibb County, Georgia

I found a record of my Spivey ancestors on the 1930 Federal Census. They lived at 909 Ash Street, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia.

Mary Jane Spivey [my grandmother] was reputed to be a full-blooded Apache Indian [her maiden name was Murray]. She and her sons [Henry, Claude, and Wiley {my father}] are identified as 'mulatto' on that census record.

My grandfather Claud [no 'e' on the end] was identified on that census as a black male who worked for the 'GA' railroad. Family history has it, however, that Claud was a mixture of Native American and Negro [Black] blood.

There was a Spivey plantation located in nearby Eatonton. Perhaps my grandfather Claud or one of his ancestors were originally a slave on that plantation.

The 1930 census and my grandfather's WWI Draft Registration card record my grandfather's name as 'Claud'. These are the only records I have been able to find on him thus far.

On Wiley Spivey's application for a social security card, he indicated that he lived on Chestnut Street in Macon, and was employed by 'Harry Spivey'. When Wiley married my mother in 1937, he indicated on the application for a marriage license that both parents were deceased at that time.

If anyone has any information whatever on this Spivey family, I would appreciate your sharing it with me.

Thanks ever so much. M. Spivey Edwards
