Dear Ravana, First may I say I like your name. It's unusual. Second, I have lots of information but I'm bad about organizing it. I should do it as I find things out but tend to put it off, then have to fill in the missing pieces. My records show that Friend Spruill was one of the sons of George Jackson Spruill. Friend was born May 12, 1870 and died August 5, 1915. He died of Typhoid Fever. He was married to Mary Pauline Rogers.Their children are listed as: John Exa, nicknamed Hector, died in Ft. Worth.; Rue May, Nickname Jack, died in Silver City, NM. He was a copper miner there.;William Ella, nicknamed Aunt Bill, died in Ft. Worth; Mary Friend no other info on her.
When I was a little girl in the Estancia Valley of NM there was a school teacher named Hattie Ryan. She had been married previously to a Jack Spruill, they had two children, John and Walter. John died early in his 20's. Walter, whom I and my husband remember traveled all over the country, was a merchant marine, and held many other jobs. We lost contact with him while we were living in Ft. Worth back in the middle 70's. Hattie died in the 80's and I don't know if Walter even knew she was gone. She always said she was kin to my husband, a John also. They lived in southern NM. When they divorced he remarried and I assume she lost contact with him. There are so many
Spruills out there now, G. Jackson was married at least 11 times, was a Leutenant in CSA born in Louisiana in 1828. He had several families. My husband's father was Reuben, and his father was John M..John M. had a twin brother also named Reuben. But we've never found anything about that Reuben. They were all cattlemen.

. Maybe we can pool our discoveries and fill in the gaps! Donna
