I may be repeating myself but the WV Division of Culture and History has for sale a photo of Alex Spotts (formerly enslaved by the Campbell family). He is probably the oldest Spotts entry that I have in Monroe County. The Spotts-Payne families have reunions quite often and he would probably be the oldest traceable member, though I hope that someone can go back further. Alex Spotts, died, tragically when he either passed out or fell near his fireplace and his clothes caught on fire. He was living alone as his wife had already died and he was found by a passerby. I will post the full article soon.
