I am enjoying a little flurry of genealogy activity after receiving a box of memorabilia from my brother.
Here is something that may be of interest to you:
In 'The Wheeler Sun' newspaper, Wheeler, Wheeler County, Texas, Friday August 20, 1909, Vol. 2., No. 11, is an ad for the GOLDEN & SPRUILL furniture company, Shamrock, Wheeler County, Texas.
Mr and Mrs Spruill of Shamrock - don't have their given names handy - were a very prominent family in Shamrock.Many a young man starting in the work world, or newly married, found jobs in one of the many and varied Spruill businesses.My parents, for example, Henley and Otta Hilburn.Dad was employed by Mr. Spruill helping Dad in many ways as the started out in life. Mom and Dad also rented one of the Spruill houses when they were first married.
I have a lot of memorabilia with the Spruill name attached in some way, as well as a Cook Book ... Please see another posting on this.
Anyway, I would be willing to share what I have either through emails or by postings.However, I am a sporadic genealogist and always ask folks to please be patient with me.
