A long shot, to be sure, but I have info (that I do not entirely trust yet) that leads back to England and an Ann Spence b.1630-?, d.1673-?. Supposedly she had a son Adam by James Fitzpatrick, Duke of Monmonth, I think an illegitimate son of King Charles II of Eng. This Adam b.ca 1660 Eng., d. Jan.1734 in MD. He had a son Adam II b.ca.1689 in Somerset Co., m. Mary Irving b.ca.1687, d. 1742. His son George b. 1740 MD., m. Nancy Purnell b.1750, d. 1776.
His son John Spence is my 3gr.gf. who moved to GA about 1800. From John on we have good proof, but before George it is quite uncertain. I do not trust these lines to a royal...usually much "wishful" thinking. If so, OK, but I had just as soon not have such a connection.
Heard anything about this old Ann?
