Bio and Links
Bio Photo Amazing (and understandably unbelievable) that, through, I found my maternal 66th great grandfather in 240 BC, yet I cannot find my paternal gg grandfather in 1850 Arkansas.

Family lore has it that he was Indian (thus understandable that there are no records) but my DNA has no Native American. Seems more likely (another family story) that he ran off, leaving Mary (Spencer)(Staner) Hickman with 3 year old Adolphus Owen Spencer in about 1879.

I'm an old hand in Ancestry and have used F.A.G as a source for years as it grew. Stupid me; Finally in Dec 2013, I joined and discovered that F.A.G is equally (or more) powerful a tool as Ancestry.

I am the great grandson of Adolphus Owen Spencer, born in Saline County, Arkansas May 13, 1876. I am seeking his father, unknown Spencer, who was married to Mary (Hickman)(Spencer) Staner.

If I kick off into the glory land, my lovely bride since 1975 will maintain my memorials. Her name is Nancy JANET (Harp) Spencer.

RE: Griselda Campbell
Apology is not necessary. I don't recall my old note to you but do recall the name. We ALL make mistakes, that's never gonna stop. Despite my care, I continue to err. Yes, I'm familiar with the repetition of wrong data and how sadly, Ancestry perpetuates it. All we can do is try to correct it and I take it, you have. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Find A Grave Memorial# 122729288
On James McCutchen (Find A Grave Memorial# 122729288), how can his wife be Grizelda Campbell McCutchen (d.1778) and his mother be Grisal Campbell McCutchen (d.1778)?? I read on his father's (John McCutcheon) that Grisal was not married to John. There is an error there somewhere.

Annis Dixon (Madewell)
Hi... I saw that you left a message on Annis Dixon's page and that she was your Grandmother 4x removed. I am very interested in getting any information regarding Annis, as she may possibly be related to me as well. Thank you for your time.

Philli, My husband is the gg grandson of John William Madewell and Annis Dixon. Their son James B Madewell had a daughter Annis Madewell Reynolds who married his g grandpa Edmond Reynolds. Family lore says Annis wife of Edmond, walked the Trail of Tears. This is impossible since she wasn't born until 1851 in Pope Co, AR. Wondering if Annis Dixon Madewell could have been on the trail? Would appreciate any information you could give me about this. The Reynolds, Madewells and Stacy family all seem to have been together before Newton Co, AR.

Staner and Mary Hickman
I keep coming across your name :) Mary Hickman and Michael D.C. Staner are my 3rd great grandparents. I'd love to swap information :) Adolphus Spencer was my great-grandfathers half brother.

My email is
The Staner side also has the family story of Native American but I can't really find anything. Though someone did post that it was the maternal side that held it. My family says they have always been told that their father Johnnie Lee Staner was a quarter Native American.
