Carroll County Poor Home

Posted: 3 Dec 2011 7:41PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Spencer, Jacquey, Bowman
My wife descends from Samuel W. and Louanna Jacquay Spencer (md 1877, Carroll Co). Samuel died about 1898. Louanna and three sons are listed at the Poor House, Pipers Gap, in the 1900 census. In 1900 she is listed as Lavinia but in 1910 she is called (correctly) Lou Spencer. No children are listed in 1910. At least two daughters are missing from the family group in 1900, Sara Jane, listed as servant with Noah Horne family and Christina or Tena. Lou is listed in Winston-Salem in the 1920 census with children John D Spencer, 24 and Tena Bowman, 30. I am seeking a deathdate for Samuel and a complete list of their children. Anyone having information about the poor home and/or this family, please contact me, Rick Frizzell
