  • Notes 
    • Margaret Stone says: "In 1837 they left Belleville (Ontario) and went to Michigan, only staying a short time, coming back to Canada and settling in Chatham, Ontario, where William Spencer died September, 1846 aged 41 years.

      John Bradfield says: d. 1892.

      Linda Portwood writes: "William Spencer is mentioned as emigrating to Canada, and later  America. He is also a marriage witness at his brother Thomas Spencer's marriage in 1826. My Spencer ancestors lived in the area that you give as William's birthplace." [2, 10, 11]
