Timothy Spencer was born in Haddam, CT in 1734. His parents were Timothy and Elizabeth (Cowles) Spencer. Timothy married Lois Hill in Springfield, VT in 1756. They had two sons and seven daughters. Their daughter, Lois Spencer married Reuben Bemis in Springfield, VT on July 23, 1794. Another daughter, Olive Spencer, married Silas Bemis (Reuben's brother) in Springfield, VT on January 27, 1785.
Timothy Spencer and his two brothers, Simeon and Taylor were among the first settlers in the town of Springfield. They located in what is now called Spencer Hollow. Timothy settled on the Crown Point road, not far from the Henry Arms place. Taylor Spencer lived near by. Simeon Spencer lived on a farm owned by Dwight Chase. All were present and took part in the first town meeting and in organizing the town. When the call came for service in the Revolution, these three brothers responded. Taylor was an ensign and died on the field of battle. Timothy was an adjutant, and Simeon served as one of the first scouts sent out from Springfield. Timothy and Simeon are buried in Summer Hill cemetery, but the stones were taken down and broken to erect a monument, and the inscriptions were not preserved.
Timothy was a soldier in the Revolution, member of Capt. Barrett's company; he died in camp of smallpox.
