Biography

William Barnabas Spoor, a Confederate soldier imprisoned at Fort Delaware, wrote a letter to his brother, Austin O. Spoor, of Alburg, a private in Company K, Eleventh Vermont Infantry. The letter, dated July 19, 1863, defended the South.

Austin O. Spoor, son of Orange Spoor and Fanny Friot, had an elder brother, William Barnabas, b. 8/10/1836, in Clarenceville, PQ (where Austin was also born). According to the Spoor Genealogy, William B. Spoor lived in Nodaway County, Missouri, where he died 7/29/1890. There was only one William Spoor in Confederate rosters, and he was a member of the 2nd Missiouri Cavalry, although the family genealogy says it was Co. E, 2nd Missouri Infantry.
