Wow! This is an exhaustive book of the descendants of Samuel Spencer. I liked Mr. Howard Jenkins' attempt to find a definitive answer to Samuels parentage.
This is an old genealogy book (1904) and I
was amazed with the objective perspective Mr. Jenkins maintained throughout the book.
Very thorough!
