In the 1910 Federal Census, I found John and Rebecca Moore listed with four SPEARS children. William M. 13, Toy (?) A 11, James C 9, and Erra B 6. ED 258, Sheet 7A. You can look at it at http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/tx/wise/census/1910/258-07...
Now, all the children are shown to have been born in Tennessee. Ara B. and Cliff E. North are buried in Boyd Cemetery, which you can access at http://www.rootsweb.com/~txwise/wise2.htm
So to find out her first husband, you might have to look in Tennessee.

Friday, when I go to Decatur, I will look for Ara B.'s obituary.

Ara Bell Spear married Ernest Clifton North / Wise County.
Ernest and Ara were my grandparents. Their children are Douglas Clifton North of Collin County, Donald North of Wise County. Ara's brothers were Toy Arthur Spears and Will Spears. They went to Wise County from Tennessee. Have a picture of Spears/Moore family. E-mail me.
Hope this helps
