Emma McCallum Spencer

There is not much known about Emma McCallum Spencer.  She was born in Oct 1881 so she first appeared on a census in 1890 and of course that won’t help us.  She married Jesse Walker Spencer on 25 Jan 1900 and they were living in Ward 4 of Union Parish on the 1900 census.  They were still there in 1910 but had added 3 children to the family, George Elmer, Carl L and Clara L.

Walker registered for the draft on 12 Sep 1915 and named George Elmer as his next of kin.  So it is believed that Emma had died by then.

By the time the 1920 census was taken he had married Ellie M who was born on 10 May 1893 in Mississippi.  George Elmer and Clara were listed but Carl L was not.

We learned from the 1930 census that Walker and Ellie married about 1918.  At this time they were living next to George Elmer and his family.

Walker died 13 Oct 1933.  He is buried at Shiloh Cemetery.

Ellie died in Jan 1969.  She was living in Farmerville at the time of her death.  She is also buried at Shiloh.
