|Marker reads:||AMASA SPENCER|
The Spencer family moved from Kentucky to this area of Jennings Co. and Amasa was instrumental in getting our township organized in 1833. The local citizens petitioned to have the new township named in his honor because he had been a patriot of the American Revolution. He participated in these battles and skirmishes in the states of Virginia, North and South Carolina: General Gates, Guildford Co. Courthouse, Camden, Reddy Falls of Haw River and Allamance.
He died on July 10, 1846 and was buried in an unmarked location on his son's farm. We remember and honor him with this monument dedicated on Sept. 2, 2006.
