[William1.FTW]

John (William?) Speer, born in Ireland, m1 Margaret Houston, who died during the birth of their first child, William Speer Sr. (1747-1830). John (William?) m2 Elinor Carlton and had 4 sons & 1 daughter: John, Alexander, James, Joseph & Rebecca. William, Sr. immigrated to America in 1772; John (William?) and sons John, Alexander, James & Joseph (half brothers of William, Sr.) immigrated to US in late 1770's.

The existence of William Sr.'s half brother/s is a story often related by almost every Speer family; however specific details were always lacking, until now. Half brothers were mentioned in William Speer, Jr's 1872 manuscript (Speer to SpeerF, 1872) (see also Whitmire, 1995c and QE for additional connection to Irish Speer Family). Today the families of William Speer, Sr. and his 2 half brothers John, & Alexander are well documented; however little is known about William, Sr.'s half brothers James & Joseph.

Several references give John (William?) Speer's name as William (for instance the LDS records), others give name as John. John is the most likely based on the fact that at least three of his children (Wm, Sr., John, & Alexander) had sons named John. In the case of Wm, Sr. & John Speer, their first born sons were named John (a Scottish & Irish tradition). Alexander's son John's birth order is unknown.This individual was found on GenCircles at: http://www.gencircles.com/users/edspeer/1/data/2092

Alexander went to Canada first and married Jane & had 4 children. Then he went to Georgia, married Elizabeth and had 9 more children. Alexander was a Methodist Circuit rider in GA. His diary is in possession of Mrs. Mabel Speer Bennett, his grand daughter in Pittsford, Michigan.

Review of info from John L. Inman, 2000 suggests that Alexander first immigrated to SC/GA where he married Jane Fletcher and had 4 children. After Jane died in 1852, Alexander married Elizabeth (or Rebecca) Wilson and had 9 more children. Although more info is nedded, it appears that Alexander & Elizabeth apparently lived & raised their children in Ontario, Canada.This individual was found on GenCircles at: http://www.gencircles.com/users/edspeer/1/data/4292
