Hello Spanns, I had no idea that there were this many Spanns out there! LOL Imagine me, thinking that my family was the only family with the last name. WRONG!!! Anyway, my father is from Missisippi and grew up in Chicago, (downtown miss) LOL My name is Antonio Hank Spann, and I grew up between New York City , & New Orleans. My father's name is Hank Spann, and my sons name is Blake Spann. I think the name of the town in Miss. is Itibina. I don't know if that is the correct spelling but they basically moved to Chicago (like almost everyone did) in the early 50's. My father is the only one with the last name of Spann in his family. That means that I dont know any other Spanns. Now which of you people are really my cousins?
