The William Spencer family was in Walnut, Jefferson, Iowa from 1850-60. William and wife Sarah were the parents of Joseph 1845 Iowa, Elizabeth 1848 Iowa, Lucinda 1849 Iowa, William H. 1855 Iowa, James 1857 Iowa, Amanda 1859. By 1870 they were living in Jefferson, Scotland, Missouri. Charles Benton was born in 1877 in Jefferson county Missouri. He moved to Union county Oregon and Married Carrie Huff. He had a brother Fredrick born in 1863 in Missouri. Elizabeth married between 1870 and 1880, although she is listed by Spencer in the census, she is listed as a widow. . Their are children living with William and Sarah listed as grandchildren. They are Ruby, Arthur and Warren. The last name is hard to read. It is either Cass or Case. I would really like to know more about this family.
