Since the last posted message I have discovered the names of Tris Speaker's parents. They were Archie O. Speaker (1852-1898)and wife Nancy Jane Poer (1845-1930). The parents of Archie Speaker were Henry J. Speaker (1809-1895) and wife Elizabeth Moore (1812-1899).This family moved from Missouri to Texas around 1860. The children of Archie and Nancy Speaker were: Alma (marriedR.C. Lindsay), Pearl (married J.G. Scott) Elsie, Dosie, Lloyd, and Tristam "Tris" born 1888, married Mary Frances Cuddihy, died 1958.
