Glad to hear from you. Everything you have seems right. I'm glad to hear that Malinda's mother's name is Hannah, she also has a sister that name. Do you have much idea's on the Smiley side of the family? And the first I heard of Malinda being married to Samuel Tyler. The book I have researched by Richard and Evelyn Spurr didn't have anything on that. As for Richard Spurr Giles adopting him not sure. My direct line is Hiatt Spurr married to Mary Brown, Richard Spurr wife unknown, Giles and Malinda Spurr, Emma Amanda Spurr and husband James M. Smith, Martha Ellen Smith-Loveless. Would you happen to even know anything about Emma Amanda Spurr's husband James M. Smith? Do you have any orgin of where the Spurr family came from?
