(Daughter) Census 191026 April 1910Katie appeared on the 1910 census taken on 26 April 1910 in the household of her widowed mother in Centreview, Johnson County, Missouri. She was 9 years old, could read and write and had attended school at some time since 1 September 1909.1
(Granddaughter 5) Will15 June 1912Katie's paternal grandfather, James H. Spence, prepared his will on 15 June 1912 in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri. He stated he was of sound mind and memory and directed that after his decease his estate shall be disposed of as follows:

He first directed that the expenses of his funeral and last sickness and all just debts shall be paid as soon as practicable.

Second, he gave and bequeathed to his beloved wife Martha J. Spence to be hers absolutely, all of his clothing, household goods, furniture, domestic tools and utensils and $500. He did not devise to her any real estate because, in lieu thereof, he had already caused his homestead, to wit Lots One and Two of J. H. Spence's Addition to the said city of Warrensburg, to be conveyed to her absolutely.

Third, he gave and devised to his beloved daughter, and only surviving child, Catherine Braden, wife of Philip Braden, of Nameoki, Madison County, Illinois, absolutely in fee simple, and as her sole and separate estate, the following real estate situate in said Johnson County, state of Missouri, to wit the north one-third of lots forty-seven (47) and forty-eight (48) in Benjamin W. Grover's Depot Addition to the said city of Warrensburg.

Fourth, he stated his only other child was his beloved son, John W. Spence, deceased, and that he had assisted him financially to procure the farm he owned and upon which he resided at the time of his death. Therefore, his will gave and devised nothing to his son's children or lineal descendants, stating his son left surviving him twelve children, and some of them have perhaps double Christian names, but in mentioning them here from memory only, he would use but one Christian name for each. Namely, John, William, Edgar, Gentry, James, Roxanna, Katie, Jewell, and Robert Spence and Laura Shadwick, Irene Shadwick and Lucy Perry (or Peary) (or Parry).

Fifth, if after all the provisions of the foregoing sections numbered One, Two and Three are carried into effect there should yet remain some of his estate, he gave and devised the same, whether real or personal, to his said daughter Catherine Braden.

Sixth, in order that the cash may be derived to carry out the provisions of said sections numbered First and Second, to defray the necessary expenses of administration, he authorized and empowered his executor (or administrator with this will annexed) to sell and convey any of his real estate, except that herein devised, at the best price he can obtain, and without first requiring any order of Court or appraisement.

Seventh, he nominated and appointed William Shockey to be the sole executor of his will.

James signed his will with his mark in the presence of witnesses, D.W. Clark and Philip S. Day.2
(Youngest Sister) Census 19202 January 1920Kathryn was enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 2 January 1920 in the household of her brother, Jesse, and his wife Pearl, at 1304 Locust Street, Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri.

Second, he gave and bequeathed to his beloved wife Martha J. Spence to be hers absolutely, all of his clothing, household goods, furniture, domestic tools and utensils and $500.

Spicer and Sophia Spicer, in Township 14 N R 1 W, Mercer County, Illinois. The census taker's accuracy leaves much to be desired, and the record's transcription is also questionable. The record indicates that the Spicer's real estate holdings were valued at $5,000 and they had five children in their household. "Alivica" was enumerated as age 9 although Sarah Amelia was actually 12 and two years older than her sister, Augusta spelled "Autusta", who was recorded as 10. The 9-year-old Edgar Lewis was not enumerated with the family. Talbot, transcribed as "Salbot" was 7 and the two youngest children, Charles F. and Lucy were 5 and 2 respectively.3
