1. 1800 - Spence Morris appears in Fairfield Co. SC - daughter Elizabeth born abt 1802 SC
2. 1810 - Spencer Morris living in Tenn I suspect Henderson Co. - daughter Sarah born in Tenn abt 1809
3. 1817- Spencer Morris (Jr) born in Tenn
4. 1820 - Spencer Morris (Sr) appears in Wilson Co. Tenn (census) daughter Elizabeth Morris married James T. Wood in Wilson Co, TN on 2 Nov 1819.
5. 1830 - Spencer Morris (Sr) appears in Tipton Co Tenn (census)
6. 1831 - Spencer Morris shows up in Dewitt colony in TX.
It's fairly easily to track Spencer because in 1820 and 1830 there is a Silas Morris living near by...and then in 1831 Silas Morris show up in Tx with Spencer on same day........
