Spence Family

These first generations were shared with me by other descendant lines of the Spence family. If you have some documentation to help me prove that Malachi Spence was the father of my William M. Spence b. 1833, I would appreciate you emailing me at the link below. If you think there is a correction that needs to be considered, please contact me.

I have documented from Joseph P (Perry) Spence down, but have not proven his parents, etc.

This is where my line starts. Joseph P. Spence was the Uncle of William M. (Marion) Spence, Sr. They came to Texas in ca 1838 settling near Honey Grove in Fannin County. Joseph married but never had any children. He married Mary Catherine Baker, daughter of James Slaton Baker. For more information see Baker page or use the BACK button below as there are stories written by our family members and William Spence's daughter.

William M. Spence could be the son of Malachi B. 1806 b. Randolph, NC as suggested by other descendants, but I have no proof.
