Sounds like your Moses Spears was my ggrandmother's brother. Her name was Margaret Spears. She married James B. Crum and then Ephriam Dawson. Moses and Margaret had about 8 other brothers and sisters (that I know of). Their parents were Linzie Spears and "Louisa" Spears. We were always told that Louisa's name was "Easter Jemima Arta Loucinda Emaline". We were also always told that she was of direct Indian descent. (Some said she was Cherokee). They lived in the Johnson County / Martin County KY area. I have a little information on the family, but would like to know more, and would like to hear from others from the same family. So e-mail me if you think this is the same family you are researching.
