In Reply to: Jane Welborn or Mary Jane Sellers or both by Brad Kramer of 967

This note actually come from Bill Laubert, who was not able to post a reply for some technical reason and sent me his response privately. I am posting this to generate more responses. Please respond to this note as well as to my own.

You have stumbled upon one of the great mysteries is the Spurgeon Family. I have information from two sources that show the same discrepancy. A lady named Joyce Glover from Anna, IL (who cites SPURGEON SEARCHINGS and SPURGEON QUARTERLY--I am only familiar with the Quarterly) says that the woman was
named Jane Sellars or Welborn and was born 20 June 1736 in Chatham Co. NC.

From a privately printe book titled DESCENDANTS OF JOHN AND OLIVIA SPURGEON by Mervin Spurgeon of Rochester, IL and Janice Spurgeon of St. James, MO--it states emphatically (spell?) that her name was Mary Jane Sellers. I am partial to the "Decendants" book--maybe because my mother was one of the 23 sources used to compile the book (SPURGEON QUARTERLY was one as well.) That's what I have. I would be interested in hearing what you gather from others who see your posting.
