I am an African American of mixed Native, European and African ancestry. My Ohio branch of the family started out in Kentucky, settled in Ripley, OH as of 1870, and spread from there to the Midwest (Kansas, Illinois, Colorado), and East (Philadelphia and perhaps other Mid-Atlantic cities). My Great Great Grandmother, Teresa Spurlock, died in Philadelphia in the mid-1940's, at the age of 100, and I have a most impressive photo of the occasion. My Great Great Grandfather, Benjamin Spurlock, born in KY in about 1832, probably died in Columbus, OH (ca. 1917). The Spurlocks had 9 children, and 8 of them survived to adulthood. I know for sure what happened to only one of the 9 - my great grandmother, Annabel Spurlock, who married Waler Evans Gray, and moved with him to Atchison, KS.
I would love to find links to these family members in Ohio and beyond; if anyone on this list has potential info, please e-mail me.
