Personal Information    |    Media    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Jacob Hyrum Spencer 
    Born 5 Nov 1845  Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • His Utah Death Certificate indicates he was born 5 Nov 1841, which is incorrect.
      The twelfth child of Richard Spencer and Mary Earnshaw, a son whom they named Jacob Hyrum, was born on the 5th of November 1845, at Hancock County, Illinois - not 1841. Source: Utah, Our Pioneer Heritage, Vol. 16 - Graves Along the Trail for the Gospel's Sake 1851. Jacob's headstone has his birth year as the 5th of November 1841. However, the Payson Ward record found on BYU FHL film # 26401 near the end of the reel shows him being born on the 5th of November 1845. Also the 1860 census shows that he was 15, and the 1880 census shows that he was 35. So it appears that he was born in 1845, not in 1841.
