Thanks for popping in with your input. I am going to re-check this.
Would you post again with more info about James Spencer? I would be interested in reading up on this.
By the way, the person for the geneology information here is a lady named Jacqueline Lubinski. Her father and Lee Van Cleef were distant cousins.
I don't know if you have ever checked into the Van Cleef family history but Lee Van Cleef was also related to actor Humphrey Bogart,TV journalist Tom Brokaw and aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright. Sounds like now you have given us another name to add to the list of notable LVC reletives.
Thanks very much!
