** A**lfred Spencer was born in Spartanburg, , South Carolina in 1834. He is the son of Elias Spencer and Susan.
** A**t some point the family moved to Benton County Alabama, where Alfred is found living at a neighbor’s house. It’s possible that it was a mistake made by the census taker, or he possibly was laboring for the neighbor at the time. In either regards, he is noted as Farming, as was his Brother Absalom B. Spencer, weather it was at home or a neighbors.
Alfred's father is also said to be Abraham or Elias Spencer, thought to be a stowaway on a ship from Ireland. I have no other information on Elias. (He may have been born in South Carolina.)
Alfred, also known as, Alford!
My connection is through his son Andrew James Spencer, born 10 May 1867. (Marriage of Elizabeth Kell)
