William N. Speck

M, b. 11 September 1850, d. 8 January 1902
     William N. Speck was born on 11 September 1850 in Oquawka, Illinois.1 He was the son of William Nathaniel Speck and Sarah Ann Rice. William N. Speck died on 8 January 1902 in Oquawka, Illinois, at the age of 51.1
WILLIAM N. SPECK. Jr., has the honor of being a native of Henderson County. He was born on the old homestead September 11, 1850. and now resides on section 4, township 11 north, range 4 west. His father, William N. Speck, Sr.. who is numbered among the honored pioneers of this locality, is a native of North Carolina, born August 10, 1833. Throughout his business career he followed farming, but in 1884 laid aside business cares and afterward lived a retired life. He was numbered among the self-made men of the county, for by his well-directed efforts, his enterprise and perseverance, he acquired the capital which later enabled him to spend his declining days free from toil and labor. He came to Henderson County in the spring of 1837, and was therefore one of its oldest settlers. Securing a tract of wild land, he transformed it into rich and fertile fields, and the once barren prairie was made to bloom and blossom as the rose. He also lived in Warren County, Ill., for four years, and on the discovery of gold in California, he crossed the plains to the Pacific Slope, where he remained for eighteen months engaged in mining. He then returned to Henderson County, in 1851, where he remained until his death, which occurred March 18, 1894.
The mother of our subject bore the maiden name of Sarah A. Rice. She married Mr. Speck, and they became the parents of five children, but four of the number died in infancy. Mrs. Speck having died, the father was afterwards again married, his second union being with Miss Olive Sewel, by whom he had two children: Lura C.. at home; and Carrie, now the wife of A. Marshall, of Hopper's Mills.
We now take up the personal history of Mr. Speck, who has spent the greater part of his life in Henderson County, and is widely and favorably known within its borders. His education was acquired in the district schools of the neighborhood, which he attended through the winter season. He early began work on the home farm and was thus employed until twenty-eight years of ag. In 1881 he went to Georgia, spending four years in that State, but since his return to Henderson County in 1885, he has made his home continuously in this neighborhood.
On the 24th of April. 1883, Mr. Speck was united in marriage with Miss Sarah Dearth, a daughter of Neal and Mima (Maples) Dearth. Their union has been blessed with two children, both sons: Robert W. and Walter C. Mr Speck votes with the Democratic party, but has never sought or desired political preferment. He holds membership with the Methodist Church, and is a man of sterling worth and strict integrity, whose upright life has won him the high regard of his many friends throughout the county.
