    Notes from Sharon Kouns
    There was a Moses Spencer b. 1744 ...generation before this one...I'm adding the note here so that I can refer back to it later.
    Source: Tennessee Heroes in the Revolution
    Moses Spencer, also spelled Spenser, applied for revolutionary pension while living in Maury County, Tenn., December 28, 1818. He was born January 16, 1744, but the place of his birth and names of his parents are not given. He enlisted February 10, 1778, in Captain James Baytop's company in the Seventh Virginia regiment and later in Colonel William Heth's Virginia regiment. he transferred to Captain Young's company and was in the battle of Monmouth. He received his discharge February 16, 1779. He volunteered for service in the battle of Guilford Court House.

    Soon after the close of the Revolution he moved to North Carolina and then moved to South Carolina. From there he moved to Mercer County, Kentucky, then to Barrent County, Kentucky, and about the year 1810 to Lawrence County, Tenn., which had meanwhile been erected from Maury County. He died March 27, 1826 in Lawrence or Maury County. He married November 20, 1779, in Henry or Amelia County, Virginia, Elizabeth Tinsley, daughter of Thomas Tinsley, who was present at the marriage. The eldest child of Moses and Elizabeth Spencer was born February 9, 1781. In 1820 Moses Spencer referred to his son Amasa Spencer, and in 1821, he said that his youngest son Amzi, was twenty-three years of age. Other children were: Ellen Blithe (Blythe), Thomas, who in July 1850, said he was sixty-five years old, Tabitha Woods, the oldest daughter.

    The Moses Spencer family were some of the first settlers to come to Wolfe Co., Kentucky. He brought slaves with him from Virginia. They travelled over the wilderness roads in covered wagons. He farmed 8,000 acres, raising wheat which he shipped down the Kentucky River to Beattyville on rafts. He owned land from the mouth of Devil's Creek, where it goes into the Kentucky River, to the mouth of upper Devil's Creek, which is a distance of about fifteen miles, and the land ran back for about five miles from the river, all the way to the Wolfe County line.

    The Moses Spencer plantation was passed down to James and Deborah Bowman Spencer, who continued to work the farm with slaves. James had 17 slaves at the time of the Civil War when President Lincoln freed the slaves. James gave them their freedom but some of them didn't want to go. Four of James' slaves are buried on a hill on the farm. They died after drinking water from a spring in a cave on the farm. Most people thought they died because of being overheated in the wheat fields and then drinking too much cold water. James thought someone had poisened them and after that would never let anyone drink water from that spring.

    Moses Spencer was born in N. Carolina, Dec. 8, 1786, and died in 1861 at the age of 75 years. He was a son of Joseph Charles Spencer and his wife Mary. He married Elizabeth Deaton, born in N. Carolina, 1793 and died March 3, 1874. She was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Deaton. They are buried at the lower end of Sandy Ridge in Wolfe Co., Kentucky, in the Moses Spencer Cemetery. Moses and Elizabeth Deaton had 15 children. One child, a boy named Bert, died on the road from Virginia to Kentucky.
