The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1922

OBITUARY - MRS. JAMES W. SPENCER.

Malinda Jane (FRANKLIN) SPENCER was born May 26, 1838 in Tippecanoe county, Indiana. She died at Humeston, Iowa January 22, 1922 with interment beside her husband James at Rose Hill Cemetery [Mount Ayr, Iowa]. On 6 Dec 1857 she married James Whitney SPENCER in Tippecanoe Co., Indiana, who born July 16, 1835 in Greene county, Ohio.

In 1863 their family moved to Piatt county, IL. In 1876 they moved to a farm two miles southeast of Delphos, Iowa, in Rice Township, Ringgold county. They constructed the farm home from lumber hauled from Bedford and it was still in use in 1992. For many years James was one of Ringgold's respected farmers and a large land holder. Malinda and James were members of the Hickory Grove Advent Christian Church. James died of cancer on February 2, 1907 in their home in Mt Ayr. Malinda and James had nine children: six sons and three daughters with two of the sons dying in infancy. Malinda was a very quiet soul and was very small in stature.
