Gail, Jo Stallings Short has written a book about the Speight family in Stanly Co. She probably has a copy that you could buy. Her postal address is: 2407 Stratford Oaks Ct. Burlington, NC 27215 Sion Speight was the son of Alexander Speight and Winna Hinson. Margaret Huneycutt was the daughter of William R. Huneycutt and Lydia Brooks. I also have some criminal action papers relating to your ancestor Sion Speight. Apparently, when he was young he like to bother a church congregation during their service. Leah
