John's birth year is approximate and based on the record of his death. John's death record shows that he was 87 years old when he died. On that same record, the cause of death looks like "Tipen Fever". Typhoid Fever? His wife, Johannah, died 3 months after he died. John and Johannah lived at Grapevine Creek at the time of their deaths.
John and Johannah (Pennington) Spencer were my 5th great-grandparents.
A sincere thank you to Victoria Taylor-True for transferring John and Johannah (Pennington) Spencer's memorials to me.
10/23/2015 I am currently looking for an actual source that John and Johannah are indeed buried in this cemetery. If anyone has a source, I would be most grateful to have a copy.
