Re: [AL] 1866 County Census Talladega County
In Response To: Re: [AL] 1866 County Census Talladega County ()
By 1870, my Margaret SPENCE is in Caddo Township, Clark County, Arkansas. There are white SPENCEs with Alabama roots there also, so perhaps your SPENCE went there too??
Margaret is the sister of my great-grandfather, Daniel Clayborn Gillette, who was "born in Talladega County, Alabama, but grew up in Arkansas." * They were each married in Clark County in 1866.
*This is a quote from him found in an 1885 AME Newspaper; he was an AME minister.
