No, when I re-checked, the one Spence that I have, stayed in Coosa, AL. I can say that it was a common migration pattern from Alabama to Arkansas prior to and just after the civil war. I've seen a couple of blacks migrate after the civil war. My guess would be that Daniel was a was brought to Arkansas as a slave before the end of slavery. I think you already know this, and it's a long-shot but you could order the probate court index film from the LDS for Talladega County to see if Benjamin Spence died between the 1850 census and the 1860 census.
