In Reply to: Marriage Lookup 1869 John L. SPEARS by Joan Williams of 1107

Do you know the names of any of their children? Is this your John and Mary?

1880 census Upshur Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

J. L. SPEARS Self M Male W 30 LA Farmer LA LA
Mary E. SPEARS Wife M Female W 30 MS Keeping House MS MS
Sarah SPEARS Dau S Female W 10 TX LA MS
Viola SPEARS Dau S Female W 8 TX LA MS
Lucy SPEARS Dau S Female W 7 TX LA MS
Nancy SPEARS Dau S Female W 3 TX LA MS
Alas SPEARS Dau S Female W 1 TX LA MS

If this is your family, then go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I typed in Spears, John, born LA, 1848 + or - five years, spouse Mary. One submitter has a match and gives the maiden name as Dorsey for Mary. Submitter gives more on her family and some sources. I would contact Kelly and share what you know, and find out how they found the marriage of John and Mary.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
