SAMUEL SPURLOCK
I was born in Breathitt County, Kentucky, on October 19, 1816. My
father was Jesse Spurlock. He was born in Virginia in 1779. He came from
Lee County, Virginia, in 1810. I had only one brother William. He died
in Breathitt County in 1854, and married Levisa Cope. I do not know our
stock or anything further back on our people. My mother was Jane Herren.
She was born in Ireland. She was a woman grown when she came to America.
Her brothers came with her. He was in Breathitt one time but left. I do
not know where he went. My father had a brother, John, who lived in Clay
County. He had other brothers in Clay County.
