Surnames: SPEER/ALEXANDER
I am assisting a friend with his Speer genealogy. His line runs thru William Speer and Martha Alexander.

I was wondering if you might have a moment to assist us in trying to shed some light on this family and to help us identify the parents of James Perry Speer and Amanda Speer?

Also if you have contact with anyone else researching the William/Martha line, I would love to make contact with them also.

Thanks.

Linda we both know this part is completely wrong:

2Fi.Mary Amanda SPEER was born on 7 Aug 1859 in Talco, Titus Co. TX.. She died on 12 Nov 1931 in Normange, Leon Co. TX.. She was buried in Leon Co. Texas Evans Chapel Cem..
Mary married Zackery WHITNEY about 1884 in TX.. Zackery was born about 1849 in Talco, Titus Co. TX. .

First off for the record there is no Zackery, there is a Zachariah T. born 1849.

Irregardless of that. Mary Amanda Speer that died in Leon CO., Texas never married a Whitney.

This all got started when I began my ancestrial quest, and found a memorial on FindAGrave of a Mary Amanda Speer.

After a brief discussion with Bill Wallace I knew this was not the right Amanda, but he added Whitney to the memorial, which has since aggravated me dearly.


It's all very simple, as you already know Linda. The Amanda Speer that married my gg-grandfather John H. Whitney, was born to the parents of Andrew J. Speer, and Catherine Taylor.

The Mary Amamda Speer that died in Leon Co. TX in 1931 IS THE DAUGHTER OF JAMES L SPEER, AND SUSAN REBECCA LITTLE.

TWO DIFFERENT Amanda's!

Perhaps I will attach my audio recording to Amanda Speer in my ancestry tree, so others can listen to it, and know what's really the truth!

Furthermore if anyone wants to tell me that the TEW/VANNORTWICK database lists that there is a marriage record in Morris Co. TX, for ZACKERY to MARY AMANDA. (SPEER) WHITNEY, I'll lastly say this.

I live 16 miles from that courthouse, and went straight to the record. There is no Whitney or Speer. It was if I remember a Strickland to a Brown marriage licence.

I get angry every time I see this lie reproduced!
