Biography

John Spearman was born in 1644. He passed away in 1683. He was bured in St. Anne's Parish, Essex County, Virginia.

John Spearman's wife's name was Susannah, [1] but there is no primary source showing that her maiden name was Catlett.

Furthermore, a primary source has yet to be found that shows a daughter Susannah for John Catlett I and Elizabeth Underwood. Their son Nicholas married a Susannah, who was "believed to be" a Meriwether and who appears in Essex Co., VA records as "Susannah Catlett." [2]
