(Simeon and Samuel).  The remaining sons were either farmers or railroadmen.

guests.  Rev. Wright, father of Orville and Wilbur Wright, who was then Bishop of the U.B. 
Church, frequently was an overnight guest of the Speakmans.  The Rev. Wright often 
complimented the Speakman parents on the achievements of their sons and wondered about his 
boys Orville and  Wilbur, and what would be the outcome of their lives. All they seemed to care 
about was tinkering in their shop in the rear of their home, trying to make something that would
fly like a bird.  Nothing but play seemed to interest these two boys.
