About Jacob Robert Spivey

Information from Rosalie Angel:

Jacob Robert Spivey

Born October 1, 1861, at 1 am, weather clear and cold.

Died age 2 years, 10 months, 6 days

August 7, 1864, shortly after mother died.


Referenced in a letter from Martha Jane Spivey to her mother, Mary Park Parks, written Dec. 26, 1863, from Dardanelle.

"You don't know how much I want to see (the children). I would give anything in reason. I mean Boby is walking everywhere. I expect he will forget me."

This seems to indicate that the gravestone information at Brearley Cemetery is incorrect.
