John Farmer Spearing was the son of Henry and Mary Spearing.
John was born 7-4-1828 in New Orleans. He married Margaretta Jane Sanders after 9-21-1852 in New Orleans.
John died on 6-17-1893.
John and Margaretta's children were:
Joseph Hall, b. 7-8-1853
Majorie, b. 4-1858
Fannie E., b. 2-1860
Amanda Davis, b. 1-14-1862
James Zacharie, b. 4-23-1864
Hun B., b. 1867
John Farmer Jr., b.1870
John's Father, Henry Spearing, was born in Southhampton, England and was owner of Spearing & Co. of New Orleans, Sailmakers. John took over the business after his Father's death.
I'm hoping to find any descendants of the Spearing line. John's Grandson, John Farmer Spearing was born in 1894 but that is as recent as I've been able to find anybody.
