Speer Family – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Speer Family, a Southern Gospel family group, was founded in 1921 by George Thomas (“Dad”) Speer (1891-1966), his wife Lena (“Mom”) Speer, and his sister and brother-in-law Pearl and Logan Claborn.

[edit] Early years

Within two years, the group had become so successful that George Thomas “Dad” Speer decided to make the group full-time. In the late 1920s, the group established a working relationship with the James David Vaughan Music Company, selling songbooks.

However, the group’s success proved to be insufficient to support two families’ budgets. In 1925, Logan and Pearl Claborn left the group; Logan returned to his job as a carpenter.
