Cynthia's parents were, to the best of my knowledge, Andrew Spears and Anna Durham Duckworth-Spears.
Her Mother Ann Durham-Duckworth remarried Andrew Spears after 1840. Ann and her children; Elijah F and Margaret M Duckworth are on the 1850 Census with Andrew and Ann Spears, as well as Andrew's children from his first marriage; Jesse, Daniel & Luiza Spears. They have two children of their own Cynthia Ann Spears and her brother, Nelson Spears.
On the 1860 census Cynthia Spears, her brother Nelson Spears and an 8 years old sister Nancy Spears are living with only their Mother, Ann Spears. Elijah and Margaret Duckworth are not on this Census, so had apparently left home by then.
Cynthia married Paul Anthony between 1860 and 1865. Family story's say he died by the hand of a bushwacker (Bushwacker definition - to attack suddenly from a place of concealment; ambush).
On the 1865 Census Cynthia's sister Margaret Duckworth-Dickenson, Margaret's 3 year old daughter, Lorraine Dickenson, Cynthia and her 3 year old daughter Ann Anthony, her brother Nelson Spears and sister Nancy Spears are living with thier Mother, Ann Spears, also.
Cynthia married John P Burrows Sept 17, 1868. They had 4 children:
John Josephine (Guisinger) Burrow 1869-1919
Elonzo "Lonzo" Burrow 1872–1958
Orrick Burrow 1874–1966
Cabe Burrow 1877 – 1877
We're not sure, but believe Nancy Spears married Jesse Jordan and is buried at Rock Springs Pioneer Cemetery, Rhea, Washington County, Arkansas.
On Nancy Spears-Jordan's Memorial, it lists her parents as John Washington "George" Spears & Mariah Graves. As yet, we have not found any documentation to prove or disprove this. The information above is to the best of my knowledge.
If anyone can provide additional information, documentation or corrections to the above, please e-mail me or use the edit tab. Additional information would be appreciated. Thanks
