Yesterday I found a kinship connection I had suspected for quite a while; but did not find until I was going be trough a branch of the SPEER family. I had notice some ‘flaws’ in the data for one branch of the SPEER family from SC/GA — and was following up on this line one family group at a time; when a connection to the Lloyd and Parsons family (families) showed three Lloyd siblings married three SPEER siblings — these folks all live in Georgia. Following the collateral branches I discovered that the Lloyds are believed to be descendants of Lucy Weatherford (“Red Eagle” Weatherford’s third child).
So, I now know who the Native American SPEERs are that I have seen mentioned in documents from Georgia. Will post a bit more about these folks when I get home from work today.
