I’m a granddaughter of Grace Natalie Spiers Newton. A few years ago in the Calistoga, Napa County, Calif., museum, I found an area dedicated to the Spiers of Kentucky. This perked my interest in my grandmother Grace, who passed away when I was 2. My search took us from Placerville, El Dorado County in California to Monterey.
I had a book written by Mrs. Margaret Murphy so I called someone with the Owen County History Museum who graciously put me in contact with Margaret, who turned out to be my fourth cousin.
