Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Eunice appears as her first name in the U.S. Census, but the obituary of her husband David uses the name "Jane." This is presumed not to be a conflict, but a nickname that Eunice preferentially used among familiy and friends. [census-us-1870-ps-in-huntington-jackson-1, obituary-david-spear-1917]

Eunice may have married David Spear on 17 Apr 1864, in Spencer, Owen County, Indiana. [research-a-spear-family-history]
