Looking for info on my Grandfather, Erie Dale Spence, 1929-1985.   I know his parents were William J. Spence and Jessie May Coats.   When I Google him I get info about Erie PA.  I am stuck and have no relatives on my fathers side to ask about them.  Just throwing this out into the information universe to see if anyone knows something.

These names seem to match but the location is off and the son 'Orrie' was born abt. 1910.  Do you know if Erie's wifes name was Ethel (Rowell)?

Hi cousin!

Your Grandfather and my Grandmother were brother and sister. My Grandmother is in her 90's and still living. I have copies of old family photos.
