"(I) George Speere (Spere, Spear and Speare, in the old records) was made freeman at Boston, Massachusetts, May 29, 1644. He soon settled in that part of Braintree, Massachusetts, which is now called Quincy. Here he built a home of great solidity, helped in scores of ways in making the town life strong and progressive, and reared a family in such a careful manner that its influence has been felt very widely in our country. In his old age he removed to New Dartmouth, which is now known as Pemaquid, Maine, where he was probably killed by Indians. "He was progenitor of that numerous race that settled in all parts of America." His wife Mary was a woman of noble and helpful character. One of his sons, Ebenezer, married Rachel Deering, and was great-grandfather of the Ebenezer Spear who was born at Braintree, January 12, 1750, and who died in Litchfield, Maine, March 18, 1821, having first settled in Wells, Maine, and then removed to Litchfield about 1787. He was ancestor of that large and influential line of descendants of which Maine has long been so justly proud.".
