They have always been a story of William Spearman, Andrew Spearman, and other Spearman men they was farmers and chimney builders, house builders and painters around Anderson from Brushy Creek, Piedmont S.C, and I Donnie Alan Blackstone was working with my Uncle Jack Huff Spearman with his Pumbing Business Piedmont Sewer & Drain we was working on the plumbing on this House that Mary Alice Spearman lived in from my understanding it was her Fathers William Asberry Spearmans, while i got the opportunity to see first hand a true old handmade chimney that was built on her house by my great grandfather it was built with Rock's out of the creek's and woods not brick's or block's and without mortor it is over 100 years old and is a beautiful piece of work. A joke that my grandfather Ernest Dean Spearman always said was that yes my dad and his brother's built many chimneys in the area and when they would get done one of them would stand there and hold it up. while the other one would collect the pay and when they got pay in hand, they would take off a running" before it fell, lol well two reasons I know this is a joke is that I did get the opportunity to remember Ernest Dean Spearman he always had a joke, and later in my aduilthood i got the opportunity to see this chimney that is still standing today. And to hear these stories this was probably back in 1998 that I got the opportunity to talk to my cousin I added this information 2/27/2016, D.A.Blackstone. and I'm editing it on 2/23/23014, this place this Chimney is its still standing but the old home place and barns is in desperate need of some tender love and care, the old home place is on 18 acres of land and is up for sale, I hope someone in the family gets it, I looked at it today and took a picture of the chimney (well my wife did)...
