William Spears

(Unknown After 1824)


Spouse Unknown







 Ephriam Spears 

There is little information available about William Spears, and none about his wife or parents.  We know he had at least one child, Ephriam Spears, and can assume he had at least one other, William Spears, Jr., since he is mentioned in an 1824 deed listed below as "William Spears, Sr."


He is listed in the 1820 census for Allen County, Kentucky as being over 45 and married to a woman who is also over 45. 

(Actually, since Ephriam was born in 1777, we can guess that he was at least 65 or more at that time.)  There were no children in their household.[1]

Allen County, Kentucky real estate records showed that William Spears, Sr. of Allen County, Kentucky sold on December 27, 1824, for $200, a tract of land to (his son) Ephriam Spears.  The deed was signed by William Spears. The property was 200 acres on the waters of Little Trammels Creek and was designated as the property "where I now reside."  The transaction was attested by Elijah Upstegrove(?), Austin ONeale and Thompson Spears. William Spears, Sr. had obtained the property from WIlliam Lamarr.[2]

A document filed that same day showed that William Spears " on December 27, 1824, "delivered unto Ephraim (sic) Spears all my stock ... household and kitchen furniture... $150."  It was attested by Elijah ____rove, Austin ONeal and Thompson Spears. It was signed by William Spears.
