I have been looking at the Internet to see what info I could find on your Edward, Edwin etc. Spears. Here is what I found. Green Spears was born 5/1772 in Va. In 1893-94 he married
Charlotte and on the 1900 census of Bell Co., Ky. they had 3 children; Joseph (b. 1894), William H. (1896) and Annie (1899). On the 1910 census of Clark Co.,Ky.they had Joseph, Annie, Leotus (b. 1902), Frank (1904), Ozelers , and Delpha. Aparently William had died. I couldnot find them on the 1920 census, but in 1930 they were in Pulaski Co., Ky. Note, no Edwin/Edward listed as one of their children. If Edwin was one of their children, he would have been born after 1910. There was another Edwin born 1919, but his father wasnot Green Spears. This might not be much, but maybe gives you some food for thought. Bob Eddings - no relation.
