There is a very remote chance that a Miller was the father of James Taylor Spurgeon, but there is no proof of that except that my father once told me that James Taylor Spurgeon's mother was a Spurgeon before she married and that she married a Miller-that does not appear to be true according to censuses.  There is a marriage for a George W.Miller and a Margaret Spurgeon in Greene Co., TN in 1856 but that does not appear to be the same Margaret Spurgeon and she shows up in the censuses of 1870 and 1880 and maybe in 1900 as Margaret Spurgeon.

I don't know if Daddy made this up or if he heard something when he was a child and just didn't understand what he heard.  It is true that James Taylor Spurgeon's sister-in-law had children out of wedlock and this may be what he heard.   Even tho Mary Lee Odell Spurgeon lived until the 40s, I have not been able to find anyone who will admit that she ever said anything about her husband's family.  There is oral family history that James had two brothers named John and Thomas and that they went to Missouri and stayed.

Thank you

Mona Spurgeon Herrin
