Ben was 10 years old when his mother died. This is what her 1882 obit said about Ben:
"She (Mary) was the mother of ten children, seven of whom are married, and nine of the ten are members of the M.E. Church South, and I trust they are all on their way to heaven. The youngest, little Benny, was a mourner at Shiloh, during the great revival that has just closed."

He married Mary Ida Fortenberry, June 3, 1890, Sharp Co, Ark. They had 9 children.

Sharp County Record (newspaper), Dec 24, 1915 --
"Corinth - Ben Spurlock and family, and Cornelius Holt and family, who have been living in Missouri for some time, have returned to make their homes here."

Ida died in 1925 in Jonesboro, Ark.

Ben then married 2nd in 1927 to Martha Nicholson, and 3rd in 1929 to Tiny ?
