General Notes and Anecdotes

Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Location: This database uses Virginia. Andrew was born in the western part of Virginia, and claims a birth place of West Virginia in the 1870 census. Since West Virginia seceded from Virginia in 1863, it existed in 1870, but was still Virginia when Andrew was born. [census-us-1870-ps-oh-monroe-salem-40]

FOLLOWUP

Andrew may have been born 24 Aug 1806 in Virginia and died 1 Nov 1887 in Washington County, Ohio. [research-a-spear-family-history]

The 1830 U.S. Census identifies the household as containing Andrew and one female 20 to 30 (probably Elizabeth), one boy under 5, and one girl under 5. [census-us-1830-ps-oh-belmont-kirkwood-200]

An 80-year old woman named Ann Howell (b. Pennsylvania) was living with Andrew and Elizabeth in 1850. Was she a grandmother-in-law of daughter Eliza? [census-us-1850-ps-oh-monroe-salem-507a]

The 1860 U.S. Census for Salem Township, Monroe County, Ohio (page 138) would provide some confirmation of Andrew and Susana Spear's family, but the Ancestry copy is a poor image, and many words are unreadable. Find a better scan.

Andrew and Susana may have married 25 Dec 1851 in Monroe County, Ohio. [research-a-spear-family-history]
