My name is Lonnie D. Spurlin. I currently live in the Raleigh, NC area and
am trying to get back into my family research. I started back in the
mid-80's and accumulated quite a bit of information. However, my job (and
getting married!) put a damper on the whole project. During that time, I
corresponded quite a bit with Norman Spurling and still have the information
that we shared. I have noticed Norman's name quite a bit in this forum and
in the GenForum (?) and it is good to know that he is still in the
"business". In the future I hope to "meet" him and as many of the other
Spurlin, Spurling, Sperlin, Sperling researchers that I can. For now,
however, my information is as follows:
* Lonnie David Spurlin b. 1955- d. Not yet, Sparta, NC
o Leonard Ether Spurlin b. 1913 Grayson Co. VA, d.1980 Ennice, NC
* Steve Jackson Spurlin b. 189-, d. 197- (the dates are at home)
Alleghany Co. NC
* Eli Spurlin b. 184-, d. 19-(again, I have the dates at home, Ashe
Co. (Same area as all above; Alleghany created from Ashe in 1859)
o John Spurlin, Abt. Dates at home, Ashe or Surry, (Same area; Ashe
created from Surry)
* Jackson Spurlin, Working on this one, Same area.
* Zachariah Spurlin(g), Dates at home, Original Spurlin(g) in
Alleghany-Ashe-Surry area: copies of land grants at home.
o ? Would love to know.
I will be most happy to share what limited information (in addition to
above) that I have.
I have heard that you have published a book on our families' history. If it
is still available, I would be interested in a copy.
If anyone else knows about available publications, I would appreciate
information on them also.
My email is lspurlin@... <mailto:lspurlin@...>
and my home phone number is 919-362-4063.
Thanks in advance,
- I am also interested in the book
Emperor: The flower that blooms in adversity
is the rarest and most beautiful of all.

In the Union Baptist book, the first book, the name Spurlin/Spurling is
mentioned 23 times. In the Little River Regular Baptist book, the name is
