Louvina Jane Spence

Louvina Jane Spence was the first child born to Henry Jefferson Spence and Mary Anna Ratliff, born in April 1886 in Kansas1.  On February 25, 1905, Louvina married John Calvin “Cal” Haskins in Crawford County, Kansas2.  John Calvin Haskins was born July 14, 1886 in Montrose, Missouri3.  Cal and “Minnie” are listed on the 1910 census in Washington, Crawford County, Kansas4.  I believe that “Minnie” is an enumerator error for “Vinnie” because although the census states that the couple has been married for 1 year, the ages match up, as well as Cal’s occupation as a coal miner.  Vina and JC Haskins are found on the 1915 Kansas State Census in Dunkirk, Crawford County, Kansas5.  On June 5, 1917 Cal registered for the World War I Draft and indicated he and his wife lived in Dunkirk, Crawford County, Kansas where he worked as a coal miner3.

Website Update – Jemima Corel McGlothlin

This is so exciting to have found so many descendants of Jemima. When I first started this venture in 2007, there was so very little that I knew about Jemima’s children.  Most of the research on Henry H., William, and Shadrack has been done by Bobby Dobbins Title (descendant of Nancy Maryland Corel) and shared on her blog, Immortal Nobodies.
