Re: Hello, Spilsby Daniel fans
I have researched and considered your points. Philby (listed in 1880) may be a brother (note ..ilby ending in both names). I also have a problem with Saphronia. Since Amanda was also born in KY, it could be Saphronia was Amanda's daughter, but not Philby's. I have doubts since the age is 4 years off. The Spilby listed in 1900 may be the same guy, but the age is off by 10 years (maybe he lied about it for the sake of his wife?). Maybe the key lies in the marriage records and/or the death records of the counties involved.
