The Howard V. and Georgia (Long) Speelman Family Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

I am working on the family of Lorenz Spielman (Spillman, Speelman), immigrant from Rotterdam in 1748. There are descendents in Frederick and Allegany Counties in Maryland. His granson, Nelson R. Speelman (1823), his wife Elizabeth Creighbaum (1826) and their family came to Baker County, Oregon with the Chandler Wagon Train in 1896. One of their 12 children, Josiah (Joe, 1852) is the father of Luther Delbert (Bert, 1887). Bert and his wife, Vera Bently (1897) were parents of 9 children. These 9 and their families are the "Oregon" Speelmans, and are those most closely related to us.I will also be following several other lines. The Robert Martin Funk family is from Henry and Pettis Counties, Missouri, and Clark County, Washington. The Thomas Long family is from the Boston Mass. area and Oregon. The John Franklin Griffith Family is from the DesMoines, Iowa area, and Oregon/Washington.If you have information you think may be of help to me, I would appreciate hearing from you. I will be happy to share any of my research with you.
