James Bankhead Speirs is also my GGrandfather. His son John Speirs (born in WVa in 1885) was my grandfather. He was married to Daisy Queen. I have a rather sketchy Speirs family tree put together by an Edna Mae Speirs in 1967. If you let me know which of the many children of James Bankhead Speirs and Mary Elizabeth Turner you are decended from perhaps I can help. The biggest problem, and it seems a common one, that I have had is trying to get James Speirs history before he left Scotland. I did come up with info from somewhere that he and Janet/Janette Bankhead were married in the High Kirk, City of Glascow. Her father, James Bankhead was born in Renfrewshire Scotland in 1784. I'm still working on all of this. I certainly can provide information about John Speirs descendants since they were the people I loved and grew up with. I guess you know you're related to the actress Tallulah Bankhead of a bygone era. I don't know how far you've gotten since you posted this, but I'd love to compare information.
