William is listed on the children's baptismal records as his occupation being a -nailer-. That meant he made iron nails. This area, especially Derbyshire, was the center for nail making.

Notes for JOSEPH SPENCER:
Joseph Spencer came to America in1840 from,Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, England on the ship, Ada Elizabeth, arriving in Philadelphia Penn. The 1850 census shows him married to Maria Spencer, maiden name Jackson. At that time they had one child, Maria, 5 years old. When he died, he was first buried in the Uniondale Cemetery in Pittsburgh, 2 years later, in 1892, he was removed and buried at the family plot at Homewood Cemetery at 1599 S. Dallas Ave. in Pittsburgh. This was done at the same time as one of his children, William Spencer and another infant, they were all moved together. They are all in Sec. 14, Lot A43. Joseph died of heart failure and dropsy at the age of 76.
Joseph had learned the trade of making horseshoe nails from his father.In Staffordshire, there was a big trade of nail making done in the homes. Burton on Trent was also a major brewery town. There is now a Brewery Museum there.
After emmigrating to America he settled in Pittsburgh, Pa. and continued in this trade until May 1848, when he purchased the Bull's Head Hotel. He was the proprietor of this for 21 years. In 1859, he purchased the Adam Wood Steam Brewery at the corner of 24th and Smallman Sts., occupying a building 56 X 154 ft. and producing 8000 barrels a year. Renamed the Spencer and Garrard firm and later the Spencer, McKay and Co. Brewery, it eventually became the leading brewery of Pittsburgh, producing 60,000 barrels of ale in 1873-74, nearly double that of any other brewery in the city. In 1865, after a destructive fire, it was rebuilt and named the Phoenix Brewery.
In July of 1869, he had changed his residency to a country seat-a fine fruit farm of 14 acres - at Homewood Station, on the line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, which he purchased. Here he enjoyed the wealth he accumulated since his arrival in America, which he estimates at $500,000. This Spencer Farm was at Lincoln Ave. and included almost all of Homewood - later called Apple Hill-now at the site of Apple Ave. or Spencer Ave. ( this information from "The Manufactories and Manufacturers of Pennsylvania of the Nineteenth Century. Philadelphia: Galaxy Publishing Co. 1875 p240-241. Western Pa. Historical Society).
Joseph's son-in-law Albert relates the story that Joseph enjoyed the sport of "prize-fighting." These were local, unprofessional , bare-handed bouts that he enjoyed taking part in.

Maria and Joseph have a family plot at the Homewood Cemetary, with a tall obelisk with their names and the names of all their children inscribed on it. Also on the obelisk is the name of Martha Madeline Jackson, 1856-1864. Beings this was Maria's maiden name, perhaps it was a young sister. Maria belonged to the St. James Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh. A large picture of her taken when she was about 80 years ago, shows her with her huge Bible. She is reading it for the picture. Their home was the "homestead" on Spencer Ave.When she died the Homestead was left to daughter Josephine. The area of their property was later called the Homewood Area, and parceled off for development. Spencer Ave. became Apple Ave. sometime after her death.

Edith was always a quiet person.She belonged to the St. James Episcopal Church during her years in Pittsburgh, Penn. In San Diego she attended several different churches. Because she usually had to walk to church or get a ride, she wasn't fussy about where she went. She told her daughters that as a young person she had gone down the "sawdust trail" at a meeting with Billy Sunday, a camptown preacher. This was the term meaning she went forward to receive Christ into her heart and life. Edith had heart troubles at the end of her life.

Wilbur's real name was William Thomas Barker. He married Laura Harrison in Pittsburgh, deserted her and their 2 girls in 1914. Laura filed for divorce in 1920 on the basis of desertion. He had come to San Diego and married again. None of the San Diego relatives ever knew he had another family, if any did they kept the secret to the grave. His 2nd wife was named Nellie. She was mentioned by the family as being " a little off". First wife Laura was noted by her family as being a very mean person, but his mistake was in not supporting the children. Laura and the children had to depend on Laura's parents to provide for them. Wilbur was connected to the family brewery in Pittsburgh (see Joseph Spencer), and Laura petitioned the courts after the divorce and did receive some money from the brewery as assets were sold off during the depression.
Wilbur's residence in San Diego was 3236 44th St. The City Directory in 1930 shows that E.F. Koch lived with him and wife Nellie. This is the man that later married Wilbur's sister Beatrice and inherited their father Tom Barker's ranch on El Cajon Blvd. before his death.
