My Spicer family information is very sketchy. Josiah Spicer (son of William Spicer and Nancy Price) was born in 1790 in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. He died between 1850 and 1860 in (probably) Monroe County, Georgia. He married Elizabeth (last name unknown) in Georgia around 1821. Josiah and Elizabeth Spicer's son, Alexander Spicer, is my ggg grandfather. Alexander Spicer was born in 1823 in (probably) Edgecombe County, North Carolina. He married Mary Ann Perdue in Monroe County, Georgia on May 22, 1850. They had one child, Lurany "Lula" Eileen Spicer, before Mary Ann died around 1854. Lurany Spicer (my gg grandmother) was born February 2, 1851 in Forsyth, Monroe County, Georgia. She married Thomas Jefferson Gray.
Getting back to Alexander Spicer. After Mary Ann Perdue (his first wife) died he married Margaret Missouri Norris on June 19, 1856 in Monroe County, Georgia. They had five children; James H, Mary E (who married John Thomas Webb), Sarah A "Sallie", Alexander L, and John O. After Margaret Missouri Norris Spicer died on June 27, 1874 Alexander married his third wife, Amanda M Sutton on January 18, 1876. They had 3 children; William Arthur (b July 1878 and married a Laura E in 1907), Daniel (b September 22, 1884), and Gray (b November 1888).
