This history of the Spofford family opens with the statement:  “Few families can trace a more authentic record of their European ancestry than can the Spoffords.”  The next  thirty-seven pages recount what is known (or believed) about the English (Anglo-Saxon) ancestry of the immigrant ancestor, John Spofford. The remainder of the volume is devoted to John’s Ancestors, through ten generations, with additional notes on the pedigree of English Spoffords (seven pages), Reginald Spofford, the musician (three pages), personal recollections of Jeremiah Spofford (from the 1869 edition, six  pages), and the Spofford Family Association (eight pages).  Descendants of the family include the Governor of Idaho, Edward A. Stevenson, and the Governor of Nevada, Charles C. Stevenson.  Henry M. Spofford was elected in Louisiana to the U. S. Senate, but was not seated. Ainsworth R. Spofford had a distinguished career as Librarian of Congress.
