Lots of children info in the link.

Narrative has a different and probably more correct view of her parents:


Maria Spotts (born Russell) was born on month day 1843, at birth place, Pennsylvania, to Cyrus Russell and Elizabeth Russell (born Mumma).
Cyrus was born on September 26 1821, in Pennsylvania, USA.
Elizabeth was born circa 1821, in Pennsylvania, USA.
Maria had 3 sisters: Elizabeth Russell and 2 other siblings.
Maria married George Miller Spotts in 1865, at age 21.
George was born on July 16 1844, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA.
They had 10 children: John Spotts, Samuel C Spotts and 8 other children.

Cyrus seems to have been the son of Thomas and Mary Russell, so Maria was their granddaughter, not their daughter.



From ecrater source:

You are looking at an identified photograph of EUGENE & LLOYD SPOTTS, taken in READING, PA. This photograph is in nice shape with some corner wear. This photo measures about 6x8.5 and is identified on the back as such: EUGENE AND LLOYD SPOTTS"

I have done some research on this photograph and this is what I've come up with: EUGENE P. (P. probably stands for PATTON) & LLOYD SPOTTS were the sons of *PATTON GAULT SPOTTS born November 21, 1875 PA. and died August 23, 1955 PA. and FRANCES ELVA COFFROAD SPOTTS born 1876 PA. and died 1959 PA., PATTON and FRANCES were married in 1902.

PATTON'S parents were GEORGE MILLER SPOTTS born July 1844 PA. and MARIA RUSSELL born September 1843 PA. PATTON had the following siblings: MARY, WILLIE, HARRY, EDDIE, ELLA , FRANK, REECER, SAMUEL & EMMA. According to the 1880 census records they were living in SOUTH HERMITAGE, LANCASTER CO., PA and in 1900 they were living in SALISBURY TWP., N. DISTRICT, LANCASTER, PA.
