I'm interested in information regarding a Melton (Milton? not sure of the spelling) Spivey (my ggg grandfather), his daughter was Leila Ann Spivey, his first wife Josephine Hendricks, he remarried but I don't her name or any of their childrens. Not sure where they lived but know it was east Texas, either Panola or Rusk County--his gg grandaughter say he might have been born in Nacogdoches. Any information on Melton or Josephine Hendricks would be appreciated. I've been told that Melton was 1/2 Cherokee but don't know how to verify this.
I know that Lelia Ann (Fleniken) Spivey was b. 11/22/1880, d. 8/17/1954. She married David Fleniken b. 3/9/1880, d. 3/6/1922. Both are buried at Liberty Cemetery in Rusk Co. I
know his lineage but need info on her parents. Lelia & David's daughter was Edna Josephine b. 2/25/1903, d. 10/15/1985. She married John E. Wallace, b. 6/10/1990, d. 12/13/1976/79. Josephine's siblings were (per my sister) Ossie, Ola Mae, Norine, Floyd, Lonnie Lee, Franklin J., Monnie Louise, Lennie Louise, Garfield & Anna Lou. Some of them are buried at Liberty Cemetery, Rusk Co, TX.
