      George W. Spicard, 1758-Feb. 15. 1848, another of the worthy veterans of the Revolution, located his land grant on Fulton Survey No. 7, 232, west of Fairview, on the north side of the trace, now U.S. 50. His claim was allowed in 1824. One son, William, was already married when they arrived in the County. William Spicard passed away at an early date, his wife, Jane, survived until Nov. 28, 1876. Her death occurred at the age of 94. They made their early home in the Stroup settlement in Dodson Twp.

      From a biography of John Foster Leaverton:
      “My earliest recollection of the sterling old veterans[s]...was at a Fourth of July celebration in Hillsboro. [John Leaverton] and old George Spickard, Adam Shafer and a Mr. Eggleson of Madison always had front seats on the platform. George Spickard and John Foster Leaverton were comrades under Gen. Nathaniel Green, and shared the fortunes of Washington’s ablest general, who held the south against fearful odds, and at last cooped up Cornwallis at Yorktown; the crowning triumph of a brilliant campaign.” [2, 5, 7, 9, 11]
