In 1890, my paternal grandfather’s brother, Isadore (Israel) Sepersky, was born in Kletsk, then a part of Russia, now in Belarus. In 1900, he came to America with his father. He married Laura Slawitsky in 1912, and they had 3 children, one of whom is still living. Sometime in the 1920s, he changed the family’s last name to Spear.
