When merged with Spearman-376 you may want to make sure you keep image also with second wife two of the children that are mentioned in the Will is hers because the first wife had already passed and isn't mentioned in Will. Thanks

Spearman-103 and Spearman-376 appear to represent the same person because: I believe these are the same person and with him being in the Revolutionary war he would have been born most likely 1754 like your note says in his Will mentioned I know sons Francis, Graves and brother Edmund along with wife Grace, Thanks... I have merged everything else I believe
