    Notes 
    • It appears from the history and family group sheets of Gertrude Spencer (daughter of Richard Leo Spencer) in possession of James L. Anderson, that Richard Spencer Jr. and his brother John Henry Spencer married Elmer sisters on the same date of July 4, 1858. Richard married Lucy Lodica Elmer and John Henry married Jerusha Kibbe Elmer. It appears that Richard (the older brother) had an accident riding a horse some 10 days following his marriage to Lucy Lodica Elmer and on his death bed asked his brother John Henry Spencer to marry Lucy and raise up children to him.
      From the history of Gertrude Spencer comes the following information:
      ?My Great-Grandfather John Henry Spencer was sent to Indianola to be a missionary to the Indians by Brigham Young. John Henry was first married to Jerusha Kibbe Elmer and they had fourteen children. After the death of his brother Richard Spencer Jr., John Henry married his brother?s wife Lucy Lodica Elmer. This was during Polygamy times. John Henry Spencer and Lucy Lodica Elmer had ten children, one of which was my Grandfather Richard Henry Spencer. All in all, my great-grandfather had twenty-four children. Wowy!!!
      ?My Great Grandpa John Henry Spencer married two sisters. John married Jerusha Kibbe Elmer and his brother Richard Spencer Jr. married her sister Lucy Lodica Elmer. Richard Spencer Jr. was killed on a horse one day, so then Great Grandpa married his brother?s wife.
