OK, I think I can help with this, if you still need it. Rachel Spurgeon was my 2nd great grand aunt through my mother's side. I have her birth date as 1 Jul 1840, taken from her headstone in Hopkins Cemetery, Davis County, Iowa. Her father was Joseph Spurgeon and Phebe Spurgeon. I do not have any information as to her maiden name, unless it was also Spurgeon (Spurgin). They were great for marrying cousins, then. Your Joseph (B) was the son of Joseph and Phebe. He was married to Elizabeth Ann White before he married Martha Collier. Eady Catherine was my great grandmother. She was the daughter of Joseph (B) and Elizabeth Ann. Hope this helps.

I have that Nancy Jane Spurgeon married Jilto Collier. I don't know anything about him. Their children were Edna, Howard, Everett E, Lawrence, Jessie, Jennie, Ola, Beulah and Noel.

thanks for the reply! i had Nancy Jane married to Jhilson Granville Collier so maybe its the same person just the spelling was off. Their daughter Edna Bell was my 2nd great grandmother. Did you have any info past Nancy's parents?

Joseph B Spurgeon was the son of Joseph abt 1783-1849 and Phebe 1791-1882. Joseph Sr. was the son of Samuel Spurgin 1738-1789 and Sarah "Sally" Ledford 1749-1839. Martha Collier was the daughter of Hiram D Collier abt 1802-1849 (father: Richard) and Nellie Renee (Ellender) Stogdill b abt 1805(parents: James Samuel Stogdill 1765-1830 and Martha Elkins 1781-1851). Not all of my tree is proven, so beware there may be errors.
Joseph B Spurgeon and Martha Collier are both my GG grandparents from their 1st marriages.

"Jilto" may have been a nickname of Jhilson. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/f/u/n/Dale-E-Funk...
This website lists his parents.

Thanks again! I went on to findagrave.com and they had nancy and showed her spouses name spelled: Jilhson. So I guess I will go with that. So what is your family line? Mine goes: me-roy-bessie-mamie-edna bell-jilhson & nancy.
