My Grandfather was born out of wedlock in Mansfield Missouri in 1898. His mothers
name was Lova williams who moved to Salt Lake City, Utah around 1900, and
married a William Speers from Canada in 1906,My grandfather took this name.
No one has ever found adoption papers, so Speers is our last name. But I am
getting off track, back to Lova Williams. Her father owned a general store in
Mansfield, and the story goes that it was some kind of traveling salesman from
Virginia , with the surname of Burnett, Who is my Great grandfather,
I realize this is slim information, but I was hoping maybe a story had been
passed down which was similar to mine, Maybe some of these incidents will
click with someone. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
