Looking for ancestors of my 2nd great grandmother, Martha Ophelia SPEARS b May 1862 in TX or possibly LA d Apr 1951 in Upshur County, TX m1) Thomas A. JOHNSON (1860 - 1896)
m2) Robert J. SHAW. Father's name possibly James "Jim" SPEARS. The SPEARS seem to be have intermarried with the STRACENER family of Upshur County, TX.
I cannot locate Martha Ophelia SPEARS prior to the 1900 Census of Upshur County, TX, after her second marriage. There is a John Luther SPEARS (shown as J.L. SPEARS) in 1880 Census of Upshur County, TX b 1850 LA & also a J. M. SPEARS b 1850 LA. Neither of these males appear to be old enough to be her father, but could possibly be brothers. Absolutely any clues on Martha Ophelia SPEARS ancestry would be appreciated.
