On August 6 that same year, in partnership with his brother, Dr. C. A. Spellman, he opened a dental office In Beatrice where they have practiced continuously for the last 41 years. On September 11, 1901, Dr. Spellman married Miss Roza Barnum. To this union three children were born, Kathryn, Roza Louise and Marguerite. Roza Louise passed away in infancy.
