Searching for my ggg-grandfather, Julius Gustavius Spence. He is listed on the 1880 census of Walker co, TX with wife Emily as J.G. Spence. I recently found his full name to be Julius Gustavius Spence on a military record from the Civil War. It seems he served in Madison's Regt, Texas Cavalry (3rd regt, Arizona Brigade) with his wife's father, Capt. Abram W. Noble.
On the Walker co, TX census J.G. Spence states that he was born in Illinois, his father was born in South Carolina and his mother in Illinois. He was born around 1836 as he states his age as 44.
His children on the 1880 Walker County, Texas census are: Cora L. 14 (married John E. Williams) Maud 11 Willie 6 Gussie 4 Hortence 1
The family is living one poperty down from his wife Emily's older brother, Edwin A. Noble.
