I can't find much, if anything on my Spears...
I know this is a long shot, but My Spears originally came from N.C. and then moved to Ky, etc.. "Rumor" has it that back before William (see below) that either his father or grandfather killed a man in North Milksbury or Wilksbury, N.C and before this happened their last name was SPARKS and then one of them did this and moved and changed their name to SPEARS. I really don't know, but maybe why I can't find anything on my set.. Here is what I have:
Would you be related or know of the set of Spears that lived in the Pikeville, Ky. area around Greasy Creek Ky (or used to be known as Alka, ky.)
My great grandfather was Elkana Spears (who married Meecy Childers) and his parents were Silvester Spears and Melvina Cox. Silvester's parents were: William Spears (b:4-26-1821, d: 06-02-1896) and Elizabeth "Bettie" Colwell (b: 1833, d: 3-11-1890).
If this rings a bell PLEASE email me at:firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have a email group that is directed to Pike/Floyd Co. Spears at: PikeCoKY_Ratliff_Spears@yahoogroups.com
