SPIKES, TANNER (TAMAR) – Interview of Tamar Spikes (1861-1948)

After following the records of Mrs. Spikes it appears that her first name was misunderstood by the interviewer as she appears in cenus records as Tamar Spikes. She also appears in the old city directories with her husband Frank as Tamar Spikes. Also, on her husbands death certificate as well as her own death certificate she is recorded as, Tamar Spikes. —S.Griffin
