Hi Joan, Thank-You So Much for this information.It does look like I was on the wrong trail. Susannah Mcbride-b-1847- did indeed marry(1865) 1st to jack spears/spiers-b-1945. 2nd husband was william jasper denby. Susan & Jack Had 2 children, which the john "Jack" spears-b-1869 is my brother in-law's g-grand-father. If I do not get any response from person who posted on world connect, where should I go from here? looks like this is an old posting. Do you think there still could be a connection with this lige leroy spears-samuel loffett spears-zebadee spears I mentioned in earlier posting. Sorry for all the confusion in earlier post. thank-you so much for your help.
