Facts and Events
There are 2 vital records available on MyHeritage for Reuben Spencer SPRIGGS, including birth records, marriage records, and death records. Vital records are historical records that are typically recorded around the actual time of the event, which means they are likely accurate. Vital records include information like the event date and place, and the person's occupation and residence. Vital records also often include information about the person's relatives. For example, birth and marriage records include names of parents and divorce records list the names of children.
Reuben went by Spencer as long as I knew him. He was a farmer near Iroquois, South Dakota. I remember him letting me ride with him on his tractor when I was young. I also remember shooting bottle rockets off of his front porch. He had a small sitting room off of the living room where I slept, which was full of old issues of the Wall Street Journal. (Funny that a farmer would read the Wall Street Journal, but he certainly did.) I once found the floor of one of the rooms upstairs covered by a layer of dead bees. He said these were the drones. There must have been a huge beehive in his attic or between the walls. He told me that he drilled a hole in his ceiling to get honey, but I don't think that's true.
