So I’ve only gotten partially through my latest goal of getting through Jemima‘s descendants. In fact, I’ve only gotten halfway through the children of Henry Jefferson Spence before getting stuck on child number 6, Millard Melvin Spence and descendants for the last week. I tend to get stuck like this when there is just enough information to keep me digging trying to figure out just what happened to a family. I think I am about ready to accept what I have and finish this family’s section, but knowing that there are 4 more children for Henry Jefferson Spence, I also wanted to at least post that I am still here and still working to get all of Jemima‘s descendants documented!
Jemima “Mima” Spence was the second child born to Henry Jefferson Spence and Mary Anna Ratliff. She was born in Crawford County, Kansas on October 1, 18881. “Jamima” is found living with her parents and siblings in Pittsburg, Crawford County, Kansas on the 1900 census2. 17 year old “Mime” is living with her family in Baker, Crawford, Kansas on the Kansas Census taken March 1, 19053.
