Notes on Spencer White Warren

From the Families of Washington County and Bristol, Virginia 1776-1996
Moved Family to Dallas TX abt 1895, but Sarah married Adolphus Cole in Washington Co in 1899. According to the 1900 Washington Co census, they had 2 children born in Texas Maggie in 1893 and Dicke in 1898. They must have gone to TX ca 1892 and returned ca 1899. That would go along with Sarah marrying Adolphus in 1899.

They were married in Wash Co VA listed as ages 19 for both of them in 1874

1860 Federal census for Washington County, VA - he is listed as 6 b 1854
Married in 1874 listed as 19 b 1854 or 1855 depending on month born

Per Jeff Weaver
He is in North Fork District, Washington Co., VA in 1900, listing shows:
Warren, Spencer, age 48, married 26 years, farmer, owns his farm.
Margaret, age 44, married 26 years, 17 children, 9 then living, she was born in VA, but both parents were born in NC.
(The 17 children, might be 12, but looks more like 17).
Johnie, Son, age 17 (Farm laborer)
Joseph, Son age 15 (Farm Laborer)
Girdie Daughter age 1_ (might be 10) (At School)
Emma, Daughter age 10 (At School)
Maggie, Daughter age 9 (born in Texas)
Dick, Son age 1 (born in Texas)

Have not found any info about his marriage to Tempie Musick and where they lived. My sister Theresa talked about an Aunt Tempie, which she would have been because she was married to Spencer's brother. Book above states that Spencer married his brother's widow, Tempie

Spencer "Dick" Warren died in Marion at a home for the mentally ill. We suspect now that he actually had alzheimer's.

Dick's grave in the Warren Family Cemetery was marked by a stone from the original home. I took a stone with his name and dates to the cemetery on Monday, April 23, 2001. Thanks to cousin Houston Cole for supplying the funds, and cousins John Cole and Harold Warren for supplying the manpower to place the stone for me.

Spencer is buried in the Warren Family Cemetery, Abingdon, Virginia

I took the engraved stone to the cemetery and had it placed on top of the original
marker, which was a stone from the fireplace of the homestead

Maggie is buried in the Belew Cemetery in Denton County, TX
I couldn't find the stone when I was there.

Both of these pictures are supposed to be Spencer.
The one on the left is supposed to be Spencer and Maggie
The one on the right is supposed to be Spencer and Tempie
To me, the pictures should be reversed as Spencer (if they are both Spencer).
The one on the right seems younger than the one on the left.
Maybe they are both Maggie and Spencer?????
