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 (^_^)
