It is very possible that my family and many others are connected to Spencer. The same time Spencer and family were in Wilkes County, GA there were many more Crain families. They all lived in the same general area, Malitia District Q. It is possible that Spencer is the brother of Ambrose and Philemon Crain, no proof yet but with our DNA study we hope to solve this relationship. Randy Crain 5/17/04
