It's time to stop bashing my head against the ol' brick wall and ask for help.
I've got: Richard Warren Spencer, b. 2 Nov 1848 in KY, d. 15 Sep 1903 in MO married bet. 1868-1870: Mary Rebecca Carrol, b. Jun 1850 in MO, d. 23 Dec 1925 in MO They had the following children, all born in MO: Maudie Mae, George, James, Cordelia A., Alexander, & Ethel. There were two other children that died during or near birth.
Assuming (did I say that) the information I have is correct, I have not been able to find a thing on Richard Warren Spencer's parents other than his father *may* have been born in KY. Any help in taking this line further back would be greatly appreciated and allow me to keep the final 3 hairs on my head.
