The older David D. Spearman's middle name was Desmond, but the younger David D. Spearman's middle name appears to be Derrick. According to a Pedigree Resource File, he died in Virginia on 9 June 1864. The Spearman line is traced back here several generations to John Spearman 1647-1683 of Caroline, VA. John Spearman's mother's line traces back to England.

Parents are shown as David Desmond Spearman and Christina Elizabeth Slatton.

Pedigree Resource Files are not checked for accuracy, so it's best to verify that they are correct.
Ok I'm not changing anything yet but at least we got information on here , for others I'm talking to one of The brothers line out in Indiana Francis Asbury Spearman 1843,  I have been working on the one that married back to a Spearman but as usual I got side tracked,  but I thank that paper is for the dad , what do you thank?  and I looked at that Pedigree and they have Catlett as my 6th Great Grandmother and that Catlett line didn't come in to the line for two more Generations down from what I here, and it wasn't a Grandmother it was an aunt,
It looks like the son died in 1864 in Virginia, probably, I assume, in combat during the war between the states. So, in 1866, only the father would be available to work at a job.
Do you have a location of where he was living at the time of the war breaking out? I found a Company Muster Roll Card for a D. D. Spearman showing he enlisted in Columbia, SC and passing away from wounds suffered during battle on Jun 9 1864. The Muster Roll Card is from Company D, 18th Regiment South Carolina Infantry. If you think this is him I will send you a copy of all of the Muster Roll Cards, there are approximately 4, copies of transfer to hospital, death notice, and personal effects card. Also, found cards for Benjamin Spearman in the same unit.

There were two named David D Spearman in the above 1850 US Census in Anderson County, Anderson, SC. 

The one who was 44 years old was married to Christianna Spearman  and the one who was 11 would have been old enough to serve in the Civil War in 1863. His father would have been 57 in 1863 and could have served also.

Well this is interesting , I will have to find out who this one is , you don't thank it's him but maybe a son , ?
David D Spearman Employment 26 Jan 1866 Anderson, South Carolina, United States

 

Are you sure he passed away during the Civil War? The war was over before 1866 when the above David D Spearman was employed. 
On the bottom of the profile is Probate papers I guess I can look it back over ,
That Probate paper is hard to read but it looks like he died 1863 and I can't make the information on this paper out to see the name of a child it mentioned?
His father was still living he didn't die to 1878 this is probably,  David Sr, information but not 100% sure if we had an age?

          Donnie,

          The accuracy of the middle name Derrick needs to be researched to see whether it is valid or not, before changing your record.

          Top one is a cousin to the David Desmond Spearman d. 1863 and the bottom one is his father, I believe it may be is Father's information,
          All three tombstone photos look like they have August 3, 1806 on them.
