Spencer Family history was written for the whole family,
but especially for Claire, Mackenzie, Corrine, Ari,
Ryan, Sevrin, Tyler, and Allison - The Seventh
The names, the places,
and the dates in this history were checked and
rechecked. A few names or dates may still be
incorrect. As you dig deeper into the past,
information does become less reliable. People
change spouses and downplay the fact. Some people
changed their German names to avoid association with
America's enemy in two world wars.
Children of children of
aunts and uncles are recorded in some parts of the tree,
and not in others, depending on information
available. Due to limitations of space and
interest, people were not documented who are more than
three or four siblings removed from the main family
line. Some people's stories are more detailed than
other people's stories. This is simply because
more information was available about some people.
Living people are referred to in the past tense because
this story was written to be read in the future, when
the present, will in fact, be the past.
Agnes Spencer is the
greatest single source of information for this family
history. Her memories of people and events provide
most of the framework. This story could not have
been written without her.
