Have you run across a SPICER family name in your research. My
ancestors, William Spicer & Lydia Johnson, were massacred by Indians in
June 1773 in Greene County, Pennsylvania, along with a son Jobe, bc 1758.
Two other children, William, bc 1764, and Elizabeth, bc1762, were taken
captive. Elizabeth was released 18 months later and returned to Greene
County. She married a William Daugherty, had 2 daughters -Elizabeth & Lydia;
and after his death, married Thomas Bowen in 1791 in Greene County and had 6
William Jr. (my ancestor) remained with the Indians. He was taken to Seneca
County, Ohio where he married an Indian woman and raised a family. He became
a wealthy stock raiser and died there about 1830-1831.
Back to the William Sr. & Lydia Johnson. They came to Greene County PA about
1771 from VA(?). I am trying to find their families. Your Spicer Roberts
may have been given the name Spicer because of one his ancestors.
I know I am really reaching out here, but I would be very interested in any
background you might have on your Spicer Roberts. Who knows -- we might be
