  • Notes 
    • The Speary Family of Sullivan Co., Pa. website incorrectly identifies Charlotte V. Kisner Hummmel (b. 1865) as a daughter of Asa Speary. However, she is not listed in Asa's household in either the 1870 and 1880 censuses, and records for several Hummel children all indicate that their mother's maiden name was Kisner.
