Spence/Spense, Milam County, TX

Classification: Query
Surnames: Spence, Mullen, Mullin, Mullings
Looking for an obit or gravesite for a I.S. Spence (Isaac Simpson Spence)

He died per death certificate on March 14, 1912.

Hermes & Meyers? (unclear print) buried him on March 15, 1912.

His death certificate states at that time of his death he was married. (His wife was Mary Jane Mullen & went by Jane)

I cannot find his wife in the 1920 census, some of the children were living with relatives in Alabama. I don't know if she died after him or maybe remarried.

If anyone has access to newspapers from 1912 and/or cemetery listings or has any idea who this funeral home was so I could write to them I would greatly appreciate any help.


SPENCE, ISAAC S (1910 U.S. Census) 22nd & 23rd of April
TEXAS , MILAM, 4-PCT
Age: 44, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: AL
Series: T624 Roll: 1578 Page: 30

Occupation: Pit boss in coal mine both parents born in AL

wife: Jane age 34, married 18 years had 10 children 7 living, both parents born in AL

Children: Maggie age 17 born in AL, Wilbur or William age 14 born in AL, Charlie age 8 born in Tx (rest of children born in TX), Laura age 5, Annie M. age 4, Oscar age 2, Ida L. age 10/12

There daughter Maggie married Charles "Henry" Bryant about 1912...He is another brick wall/mystery.

I can not find him anywhere previous to 1920 census where they were living in Pa.

Henry was supposely born in SC, but I would assume he must of been in TX if he married Maggie or she may of been sent to Alabama to live with relatives and she met him there.

Their first? son was born in Austin TX, on November 16, 1912

Any help would be appreciated :)
