I have been looking at this page for so long, and I still can’t figure out why this was done.
This was found in the file of Ellen Watson Demumbrie’s estate records. As I had mentioned in this post, Spencer was married first to Ellen Watson. I have no clue when she actually died, just that her estate records begin in June of 1849 (approximately 6 months after they married).
This record was found on the Memphis-Shelby County Archives website. Most of it is just Tennessee written over and over. Other names written on it are DM Currin, EM Yergen, EWM King, and Lewis W Daniel.
I will post more about Ellen Watson in the future. As soon as I figure out who she is!
