"My name is Teresa Truman and I'm searching for any information available on the William Arlin Spencer (wife, Jane), Jesse (Jack) Spencer, or Ellis Murphy families. My grandmother's name was Emma May Spencer and she lived with Will and Jane Spencer from around 1921 until around 1934. Her name is listed on the 1930 census as being in their home. The reason for my inquiry is to find out who my great-grandmother was. I do know that she was deaf and dumb, she had 2 daughters by Jesse Spencer (my grandmother, Emma Spencer and her sister Vicey), and a son after she was committed to the State Hospital at Marion, VA. Her son was adopted by the Florence Cole family of Pounding Mill, Va., my grandmother was taken from an orphanage by Will Spencer and that's how she came to live with them, and Vicey was adopted and also taken from the orphanage and ended up in California. My grandmother married Garney (Doc) Alley in July of 1934 according to county records. Any information would be of great value to our family..."
