Wilshire Zumwalt Family of Pike County, MO.

I am seeking information on a Wilshire Zumwalt family who was living in Pike County, Mo. in April 1894. Mr. Zumwalt was married to a sister of my great-great grandmother.
The following obituary for my great-great-great grandmother Perlina (Paulina) Renfro RIDGWAY reads as follows:

"Died in Pike County, Mo., at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Wilshire Zumwalt, April 23, 1894, in the eighty-first year of her age, Mrs. William Ridgeway..."

A very old handwritten note to my great-great grandmother stated that "she was buried at Spencerbury on the 24th". Does anyone recognize that name? Could it be a cemetery or the name of a town in Pike County, perhaps?
Any information on this family would be helpful...the name of Wilshire's wife and children would be truly appreciated. There were, at least, seven Ridgway daughters and I only know the names of two of the husbands.
Thanks so very much for any help that you can give me. Have a happy holiday.
Rod Green,
Austin, TX
