Historical Note

George W. Spier was a colonist resident of Fayette County, Texas, when he died on December 29, 1833. His widow, Rebecca Spier, and son-in-law, John W. Scallorn, filled a petition upon administration of his estate on September 30, 1837, granted on October 28, 1839. By 1840, John W. Scallorn had also passed away and it was Rebecca Spier and her daughter, Miriam Scallorn, who negotiated the terms of the estate partition. The agreement included the satisfaction of a debt in the sum of 613 dollars that Spier had with his son-in-law John W. Scallorn with a slave named Mary valued at 500 dollars plus the difference.
