Spencers of South Carolina

My name is Tonya Brown and I am directly related to Benjamin Spencer d. 1751. I saw your post online regarding the The South Carolina Spencers where you had stated that Benjamen Spencer was the son of Anthony Spencer and that this Anthony Spencer was the son of Oliver Spencer. Is this correct? Have you located any more information on this family line? If you have any information at all on Anthony Spencer or the father of Benjamin Spencer, I would appreciate it.

Thank you

RE: Julia Randall
There is a good possibly that Dona Cupp will transfer her to you. I've put her on my list to look up on microfilm when I go to the library.
I'll send it to you if I locate it.

Albert Albrecht Hoy
Dr. Beall,
Thank you for listing some of the family information on Find A Grave. My wife is Frances Hoagland. The Hoagland's are related through the Johnsonbaugh's who married a Hoy. Albert Hoy is her 5th great-grandfather.
From the messages it appears you might have a Family Tree on Ancestry. Do you mind sharing the Tree? I share a Tree with my son, and if you are interested can give you access. I can be reached on Thanks, Bob Bennett

Moss Springs Cemetery
I am part of the cemetery preservation committee of Jasper County. On a recent visit to Moss Springs, the church monument has been vandalized. (knocked over) We do not know when this happened and am interested to know when the photos of the stone wastaken. That will give us a date to start with our investigation.

William Brokhull and John Clumford
Dr. Beall,
Thanks again for your invitation to I was taking a stroll thru the ancients and a couple of ancestor dates appeared off since both are listed as parents:
William Brokhull 1315-1325 (10 yrs old)
John Clumford 1350-1355 (5 yrs old)
BTW, the length and depth of your research is amazing.
warm regards,

RE: Lee Family Tree
Hope you had a relaxing fourth!
Just an additional comment:
John and Mary Lee fascinate me because they seemed to be of such a generous nature, as attested to by your comment regarding your ggrand uncle staying with them. The 1900 census showed their sister Julia, husband Charles Morris (my ggrandparents) and three teenage children residing with them. Maybe they had expandable rooms (or a large barn)! The 1910 and 1920 census showed their mother Arminda living with them and the 1940 census showed their 80 year old sister Eva Vincent living with them. Apparently their door was always open. The 1850 census listed Arminda's father as a clergyman and her daughter Julia's obituary expressed a strong religious conviction, so I imagine the Lees practiced what they preached.
In regards to your book -- are you using a publisher or going to self publish? Do you know the approximate price range it will be offered? Do you have a not-so-public email you use to submit more personal info? I have a verrry small list of Lee descendants when the time comes to offer sales but I don't think it's appropriate to post it on this public forum.
best regards,

Lee Family Tree
Good grief! I can understand why you have been working on this for 20 years! You are doing incredible research. When I spend an hour on this stuff, I have to back off because I get overwhelmed! I really envy your collection of family photos and memorabilia -- and wish you were tied closer to my side. It is wonderful to follow my family tree, trailing behind someone who has already done the work! I also love reading the old documents.
My father's parents died at an early age but his maternal aunt kept the family together through communication and visits throughout her 90 odd years. She left us with a typed copy of our family tree starting from my dad's level and going up to Garrett Lee, Jr. and Arminda's parents John Minard and Eleanor Fleming. Also attached was the obituary notices for Julia and Charles Morris (which I posted on their sites), although they are not the original documents, only typed copies.
I didn't spend too much time on your ancestry account but I did notice some discrepancies for some of my family members and hope we can discuss them. Our information shows that Julia was born on Dec. 29, 1862 (not 1869) in Cass Co. Neb. and Died Aug. 21 (not 29) 1914 in Woods Co, OK. These dates agree with her headstone, the obituary and the documented sources. (The 1869 date put her at 10 years old at the time of her marriage!)
Also, Charles is listed as being born in 1846 but on Find A Grave we listed him as being born in 1848 because that date also appeared more in line with the Census documents and the obituary notice.
There is also discrepancies re my grandfather. Finding my grandfather's headstone (Walter F. Morris) on Find A Grave was especially thrilling for me because we never knew him, although my brother is named after him. He was born Aug 4, 1885 in Linn Co., MO (not Louisiana) and died of the great influenza epidemic on Feb 20, 1919 in Beaver OK. He left behind my dad (age 4) and my Uncle Andy and Aunt Della. His wife, Vina, remarried and gave me an additional Aunt Marguerite and Uncle John through that marriage. She died when my dad was about 13.
I'm throwing this information at you and I don't know how much of the Morris side of the family, you want to document on Ancestry. I haven't been able to get enough courage to actually start a family tree anywhere. I have only been using the free websites until I can get my feet wet -- and I was hoping to put off a subscription to until winter after my gardening season has ended -- although it is very frustrating at times without it. Being allowed to go onto your account is a wonderful experience and makes me realize what I'm missing. Hope your invitation continues for a while longer so I can look further into the tree. Thanks so much. Shirley

Lee Family Tree
Dr. Beall,
Would like to thank you for your work on the Lee family and photo from -- it offered a wonderful enlightenment to my family history (Arminda is my gggrandmother). I hope you don't mind that I sourced you in the bio on Garrett Lee, Jr. (92229230)
Since you have such a wonderful photo collection and historical records re your family tree, I was wondering if you had any additional photos or information on Garrett Lee, Sr or his wife Ann, Arminda Lee, and especially Julia Lee Morris and Charles Morris.
Thank you in advance.

RE: John Stillians-Magnolia Cemetery
If there is a headstone, he is not buried beside her. I just reviewed my photographs from that day and his name is not there. There are many graves, though, that do not have headstones, whether through the passage of time or otherwise. If I find his headstone in another area, I will post.

RE: Rebecca Beall Gravestone
Your very welcome. I have a question, there were 3 other Beall stones near Rebecca's, but no memorials on find a grave. The stones were difficult to read, but do the first names Delia or Nelson belong in the family? (the third name I now cannot read from my photo). Thanks for your advice - Sara

RE: Uriah Smith Waiste Grave
You are quite welcome. I notice that you spelled the name Waiste. If you know that to be the correct spelling, you could email the submitter and he could change it on the Memorial. Linda
