Samuel Pleasent Spears was born on 8 February 1855 at Yardelle, Newton County, Arkansas; Samuel's gravemarker has his birth year 1855, but censuses indicate he was born 1857. He married Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey, daughter of John W. Ramsey and Mary Spears, on 12 October 1876 at Jasper, Newton County, Arkansas; I have copy of marriage license. Samuel Pleasent Spears married Martha E. Steele, daughter of Minor Steele, in 1897 at Webbers Falls, Muskogee County, Indian territory. Samuel Pleasent Spears died on 25 April 1917 at Hoyt, Haskell County, Oklahoma, at age 62. He was buried on 26 April 1917 at Hoyt Cemetery, Hoyt, Haskell County, Oklahoma; I have picture of grave marker.
Samuel Pleasent Spears appeared on the census of 1 July 1880 at S.D.2; E.D.115; Page 51, Prairie Township, Newton County, Arkansas; is age 25, married to Sarah and he is farming. Two children are with them. He appeared on the census of 21 June 1900 at S.D. 73; E.D.76; Sheet 19 B, Township 9. N. R.19 East, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory; is age 43, has been married 24 years to Martha and he is farming. Martha has had 2 children, both are living. He appeared on the census of 22 April 1910 at S.D.4; E.D.91; Sheet 6 B, Machire Township, Haskell County, Oklahoma; is age 53, has been married 11 years to Martha and he is farming. Martha has had 7 children, only 5 are living. Grandchildren Clara, Wilmeth & Bubbie Moreland are with them.

  1. If my records are correct, there is no way Samuel and Martha would have been married 24 years as the 1900 census indicates. Two children, Frank and William are with them, but where, in 1900, were the other chidren born to Samuel and Sarah. Osie is in the1910 census with Samuel and Martha, but she is the only child from Samuel's former marriage who is listed. In this census, Samuel & Martha have been married 11 years, which corresponds with my history on this family. Perhaps there were two Samuel P. Spears, both marrying a Martha. Since, in 1900, I have not been able to locate the children born to Sarah and Samuel, this is a strong possibility, however unlikely.
