Spencer's tombstone does not show the day or the month he was born, only the year. He lived to be 72 years of age and was well known and respected in the neighborhood in which he lived. He lived and died on his farm in the head of Lick Fork of Beefhide Creek, Kentucky. Records show that he and wife, Elizabeth, had nine children, four boys and five girls. Spencer like to take his girls and go to gatherings where he would play the fiddle and the girls would dance. These gatherings were called "play parties." The kind of dancing they did was the old time square dances. "One Mullins Family" mentions Spencer raising his eight sons at the head of Lick Fork, but only five sons are listed.
