http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:1854081&id=I89100355 Rev. William Speer (1652-?) was born in Aryshire, Scotland and immigrated to County Antrim, Northern Ireland where his son John Speer (1693-1764) and grandson John (William?) Speer (1723-1771) were born. Rev. William's five great-grandsons, William, Sr. (1747-1830), John (1748-1842), Alexander, Joseph, and James, all born in Ireland, immigrated to America in the late 1700's. William, Sr. was a half brother to brothers John, Alexander, Joseph, and James. Eventfully they all settled in the southern United States, primarily in Georgia and South Carolina where their families prospered and grew large.

Although nothing is known about the families of Joseph or James, the families of William, Sr., John and Alexander are well documented; some branches of all three families moved on to Alabama, Texas and Florida in the 1800's, where again large families were established. As of August 2000, my genealogy list covers 13 generations with over 5,500 individuals, both past and present, related to our earliest known Speer.

The story of great-grandson William Speer, Sr. (1747-1830) and his descendants is told in my 500-page William Speer book, published in 1998. Four subsequent newsletters also cover the descendants of William, Sr., as well as his half brothers John and Alexander.
