RE: Spearman

Hi there, in reply to your question, my Francis Asbury Spearman was born in 1843 in Brushy Creek, South Carolina. He married Permelia Ann Huddleston in 1866. He died in 1876 in Indiana and is in an unmarked grave. He was sick when they moved to Indiana and died a month after he and the family moved there.  Hope this helps you, Richard Spearman, this information was added by Donnie Alan Blackstone after speaking with Richard Spearman on the phone February 17, 2017
