Cad W. Spurgeon descendants in Davis Co., Iowa

Back in February 2004 I learned that Grandmothers (Minnie Spurgeon Fenton) parents were Cad W. Spurgeon & Lydia M. (Grant and/or Gravett) Spurgeon. I also found that my grandmothers mother (Lydia) died in 1888 and Cad W. was remarried around 1901 to Dora Ardilla Spilman. My Grandmother died in 1903 when my mother Lila Fay Fenton was only 2 years old and for some reason my mother and the rest on my family lost all contact with my Great Grandfather Cad W. Spurgeon. I know that GGrandfather Cad W. died March 23, 1940 in Davis County, Iowa. Cad W. & Dora A. Spilman had 4 children; Cressie M., Carl R., Opal P. & Pearl D. I have no idea what my GGrandfather Cad W. or for that matter my GGrandmother Lydia even looked like. This may sound a little crazy, but I'm interested in finding out if there are any descendants of Cad W. Spurgeon & Dora Ardilla Spilman still living that might have some old photos that they would be willing to share. If anyone knows of any descendants they can either contact me through this list or e-mailing me directly at
