I am searching for the decendants of the children
of John Spier,School Master of Edgecombe Co. NC.
John died abt 1790. His wife Christian Benton and their
son Benton removed to Clarke Co. Ga, where Christian died
about 1808/9. Their other children were Son
Harris Spier who was murdered by one of his
slaves in Va 1799. He had bought land in Hancock Co. Ga prior
to his death, but I don't know if he had actually moved there.
He had a son Phillip Spear, who married and had children. One
of his daughters Martha(Aunt Pattie) married
Quinney Lewis in NC and moved to Marion Co. Ms and died in Pike Co. Ms.
He left a son John Spier,who was to have the
plantation,daughter Rosy Spier was left furniture, daughter
Absella Spier married Rev. Isham Pittman and lived in Robeson
Co. NC.Absella and Isham had no children.
Believe that Harris had a daughter Mary Spier who married Wm, Barnes and removed to
Marion Co. Ms.
I would like to complete this family history.
Can any one add data to this family. Need Spouces and names of
Harris Spier may have had another daughter
named Rosanna who married Wm Thompson Jr. in
Robeson Co. NC. Oct 27, 1810. They removed to
Carroll Co. Ms.
