Nellie Elizabeth ROBERTSON, b. abt. 1860, in Three Rivers, St. Joseph Co., MI. The name & POB comes from the delayed birth record of her son, Frank McCorkls Spencer. Her mother's name was Mary Joanna or Johanna who m.2 to Mulford Foster Drake. Nellie m. Edward George Spencer & lived in Chattanooga, TN by the 1870's. She & Edward divorce in 1894. According to Newspaper records, Nellie returned to MI after the divorce. This was a big scandal in Chattanooga. Nellie lost custody of her children. I must assume that Nellie's father died, perhaps in the Civil War. Any help appreciated in tracing Nellie's parents & ancestors.
