There are several Spencers in this extended family.John Hobbs Adams, Sr. had a son named Spencer (b 1750).John Hobbs Adams, Jr. had a son named Spencer (b 1799).Charles Adams had a son named Spencer (b 1778)This Spencer started a line of first sons named Spencer, currently seven (including the first) and probably more to come. The Spencer you cite as a justice of the peace is probably the one known as "Old Spencer of Kentucky".He was my ggggrandfather and was, apparently, quite a character.He was an itinerant preacher who moved around a bit, usually taking much of his family (including his father's and brothers' families) with him. He was born in Loudon Co, VA in 1750, the son of John and Ann Adams.He moved the family to the Reddie's River area of North Carolina (Wilkes Co) where his father and mother died.He then moved to Kentucky, accompanied by several of his kin, including his children, his brother, John,Jr., and several nephews, settling in probably Letcher County or thereabouts where he became sort of a patriarch.After many years in Kentucky he moved to Dallas County, Alabama, again taking many of his family (mostly his children and grandchildren this time) with him, where he died in 1830 at the age of 80. There was a lot of inter-family marriage in this family, including some first cousins.Many of them had children with similar names and their families were usually fairly large.John, Jr, the father of the Mary you mention in your message, had three children by his first wife, Nancy Ann Caudill, then married Lydia (Letty) and had eleven more."Billy" who married Mary was William Green Adams.I had no other reference to him and none of their children.I am glad to be able to add that information to my database.Thanks.
