Author: lilmar1942 Surnames: Classification: obituary Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.speers/150/mb.ashx Message Board Post: >From the Chatsworth Plaindealer Chatsworth,Livingston,Illinois LAST VETERAN OF CIVIL WAR MUSTERED OUT JOHN W. SPEER DIES MONDAY NIGHT, AGED 96 YEARS FEBRUARY 18, 1937 John W. Speer, Chatsworth's last Civil war veteran, died at his home in the western part of the village Monday (Feb. 15) evening at 8:30 o'clock at the age of 96 years and 16 days. Deceased had enjoyed remarkably good health during the greater part of his long and useful life. It was evident for several weeks past that the end was approaching but he was conscious up until a few minutes before death. FUNERAL AND BURIAL WEDNESDAY Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon from the house at 1:30 and at the Methodist church at 2 o'clock, with burial in the Chatsworth cemetery, where his wife and only daughter are buried. Rev. W.W. Wohlfarth, pastor of the church, had charge of the services. The casket bearers were Joseph Dietz, Frank Wise, Elmer Pearson, M.E. Franey, P.H. McGreal and John Brosnahan. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Felt, Mrs. Fred Kyburz and Evert Bess sang, with Mrs. Charles Shafer at the piano. The impressive ceremony of the American Legion was accorded him at the cemetery. A volley was fired over his grave and taps were blown in his honor. A NATIVE OF INDIANA Mr. Speer was born near Fairfield, Franklin county, Indiana, January 29, 1841. He spent his youth in that locality and when the Civil war broke out he enlisted from Clarksburg in Co. F., 18th Indiana Infantry and served creditably until the close of the war. He came to Illinois after being mustered out of the service and was married January 14, 1869, at Granville, Illinois, to Miss Martha E. Baird, who died April 6, 1908. Following the marriage of the couple they came to the vicinity of Chatsworth and for a few years resided on and farmed what is now the Nick Nimbler place, two miles west of Chatsworth. Then they moved to the village and for more than 40 years Mr. Speer was a prominent stock buyer and was known over a large territory. When age compelled him to give up his loved vocation he lived a secluded life with his daughter, Myrtle and son Harvey. The daughter died August 28, 1929. Soon after this his niece, Mrs. Charles Walsh, and her husband, came from South Dakota and kindly ministered to his wants. TWO SONS SURVIVE Of the three children born to Mr. and Mrs. Speer, two sons, Charles, of Newton, Kansas, and H.B., of Watseka, survive. Charles was in California when the father passed away and was unable to reach here in time for the funeral. Mr. Speer was honored and beloved by those who knew him and his name will be revered as one typifying honesty and fidelity.

Author: tspeers_2 Surnames: Speer, Speers, Spears, and Spear Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.speers/16.25/mb.ashx Message Board Post: According to Cyrus Jackson Spear's nephew Raymond Spear III in Oklahoma, Cyrus Jackson Spear's father was also a Cyrus John or Jackson Spear. The grandfather was John Oliver Spear from Weirton WV. His wife was Mary Ellen Jackson (she may be from Marshalltown Iowa). Other children were: John L., Raymond Leroy 1899 - 1974, Helen Lucille, William J., and Margery Spear. John Oliver Spear's parents in Parnasus, PA were Capt. James Speers and Martha Jane Wallace from the Belle Vernon area. They are my line. John O. Spears changed the spelling of Speers to Spear due to problems with receiving mail since a neighbor had the same last name Speers. Captain James Speers born 1834 is a son of Henry J. Speers III and Esther McCrory (a cousin) on Maple Creek in Charleroi PA. James siblings were: Abraham, Plessy, Sarah, Apollos, Capt. Thomas, Henry IV, and William. James, Plessy, and Apollos were orphaned to Thomas Taggart in Belle Vernon when their father Henry Speers III born 1787 in Speers PA died in 1839 when they were still juveniles. I do not know if Plessy was male or female. Apollos married Matilda Furnier. Apollos was a furniture store owner and funeral undertaker in Belle Vernon and his uncle another Apollos who married Elizabeth Cooper and operated the BV to Speers Ferry mentioned in J. S. Van Voorhis's book "The Old and New Monongahela" published in 1895 and online at the university of Pittsburgh digital library. John Oliver Spear was one of 7 or 8 children. His siblings were: Janette who m Wilson Miller Davidson and had 3 children, William, Arthur, George, Anna F., Hester (may not be a sibling), and Anna Jane who m William Elliott and had 10 children. There is more on Henry Speers III's family which includes Spears and Speer relatives and more Speers cousins. I would like to contact any of these descendents. I am in contact with a few of the above's descendents. Tom Speers originally from Belle Vernon PA. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

As I recall not much on Ireland. The problem in general for going back to Ireland pre 1850 is that little census data exists. I would be very skeptical about people who claim they have common ancestors with you unless there is some documentary evidence. The farther back the more tenuous the links. Some claim back to Scotland then to royalty on the Orkeney's. As you Americans might say, "Be from Missouri" Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
