1. William Speed was born on 19 Feb 1716 in Southwark Parish, Surrey Co., Virginia and died circa 1781 in Anson Co., North Carolina at age 65.

General Notes: Records indicate that William was in the Anson County, North Carolina Regulators with the title of Major Speed at the time of the American Revolution. In a publication, "History of Anson County, (1750-1976)", it was noted that he was captured and confined in a dungeon in Camden, South Carolina as a prisoner of war. William apparently died there as evidenced by the March 28, 1782, Richmond County, North Carolina Court Order in which he died without a will. This order appointed as administrators, Zack Martin and Major Speed's former widow, Elizabeth Speed Martin. It appears that Major Speed's widow married Zack Martin in the year following his death.

Early Anson County land records in North Carolina show William Speed as the authorized overseer of the road from the Province line to John Thomas' property (January 14, 1777). He is also listed on numerous Richmond County, North Carolina (formerly part of Anson County) land entries for these early years.

William Speed and his son, John Speed, had signed, along with a large number of Anson County citizens, The Mecklenburg Declaration of 20th May, 1775, objecting to the new proposed boundaries between North and South Carolina.

NOTE: It should be noted here that as of 2002, family research still continues to firmly document the father-son relationship of William and John Speed of Richmond County, North Carolina. It is possible that William and John Speed may have shared another direct relationship such as being brothers or uncle and nephew. At the estate settlement following William Speed's death, John Speed and Robert Speed were present and participated in that estate sale. William Speed and John Speed also owned land in Richmond County, NC very close to each other near the area of Speed's Creek just south of Rockingham, North Carolina and close to the South Carolina border.

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: FARMER.

2. John Speed was born circa 1754 in Virginia, died on 18 Feb 1806 in Richmond Co., North Carolina at age 52, and was buried in 1806.

General Notes: John Speed was a captain and later a lieutenant colonel during the American Revolutionary War and served in the Richmond County, North Carolina Militia (formerly part of Anson County). Captain John Speed was wounded at the Battle of Stono Ferry, South Carolina on June 20, 1779. Stono Ferry was about eight miles west of Charleston on James Island in the Stono River. The State Records of North Carolina found in the North Carolina Archives reflect that Captain Speed of the North Carolina Militia was listed as wounded in the "Return of the Killed, Wounded, and Missing in the Action of Stono Ferry, 20th June 1779." In the North Carolina Archives, there are two Revolutionary War pension applications for veterans who served under Captain John Speed. From these and other archive records, it was learned that Captain John Speed served under Colonel Thomas Crawford.

From early records of St David’s Parish in Cheraw, SC, which is just twenty miles south of Rockingham, Richmond County, NC, John Speed is listed in 1778 as a vestryman of the parish. 1779 Jury List Records for Cheraws District of S. Carolina list John Speed as both a Grand Juryman and Petit Juryman in Civil Causes. Other references to John Speed are found in Stewart-Stuart Family history book (R929.125 B66 V.14). In the Stewart family history, John Speed is noted as marrying Catherine Stewart in 1774 (this was her second marriage). The common use of the Stewart/Stuart name was reflected in numerous descendants thereafter. Anson Co., N. Carolina deeds and abstracts (1756-1786) refer to John Speed several times.

On April 21, 1784, John Speed took his seat in the North Carolina General Assembly representing Richmond County. He is listed in the 1790 U.S. Census of Fayette District of Richmond County, North Carolina. John Speed died 18 February 1806. His obituary was published in the early North Carolina newspaper, "The Raleigh Register": "Died in Richmond County, on the 18th ult. of the smallpox, Colonel John Speed, a respectable citizen, who has frequently represented that county in the General Assembly of this State." The North Carolina Archives records reflect that James Stewart Speed was the administrator of his father's estate in Richmond County.

3. Robert Wages Speed 1,2,3 was born on 26 Oct 1763 in Orangeburg District, South Carolina and died on 1 Jan 1826 in Oconee Co., Abbeville Dist., S. Carolina at age 62.

General Notes: Robert was listed as living in the Orangeburgh District, N. Part, S. Carolina in the 1790 U.S. census. In the 1800 U.S. census, he was shown to be living in Pendleton Co., S. Carolina. In the 1810 and 1820 U.S. census records the family was living in Abbeville Co., S. Carolina. It is believed that Robert served in a North Carolina unit during Revolutionary War. The North Carolina Archives contain a pay voucher dated March 1782 for war service to Robert Speed. No middle name, however, is mentioned.

NOTE: The following is copied from the records of Dr. H. K. Speed (deceased) of Sayre, Beckham County, Oklahoma. The earliest record found on Robert Wages Speed (born October 26, 1763) is an account of his settling on a small patch of land in the Oconee County (old Pendleton District) in South Carolina.

In 1784 a law was passed in that State providing a system of granting land in the Pendleton District.

Robert Speed undoubtedly moved into this district to settle land but did not go so far as to formally establish legal ownership, that is not until later years. He was in fact a squatter. From the State Record of Plat Books found in the office of the Secretary of State in Columbia, the following information is deduced.

Robert Wages Speed held squatters rights to a small piece of land at the junction of Conneros Creek and Seneca River, the latter of which is a tributary to the Tugeloo River. It was from this Conneros Watershed in Oconee County that William Speed departed when he migrated to Mississippi.

Robert Speed is shown by the 1790 census Report of the United States to have lived in Orangeburg, South Carolina (See reference). He lived in a settlement later called New Brookland. He lived just across the Salude River from Columbia in the County later called Lexington. More specifically, he is said to have lived north of Orangeburg, south of the Salude River which forks with the Broad River to empty into the Catawba.

Robert is shown by this same census report to have been the head of the family, with a wife, Elizabeth Martin, a boy under 16 years of age (William Speed) and another white female who undoubtedly was his daughter Rebecca. The respective dates of birth of these two children were January 24, 1783 and November 16, 1788.

At this early period, Robert is known to have been intimately acquainted with Joseph Calhoun (born Oct., 22, 1750) who during the period of their acquaintance became a member of the Legislature of South Carolina (of both the House and the Senate) and was commissioned a colonel in the U.S. Militia in 1807. He died April 14, 1817--only a few years before his good friend, Robert Speed.

Family traditions of the family have it also that Robert Speed also acted on numerous occasions as host to the famous John C. Calhoun, brother of Joseph and known in the U. S. Senate as the "Warhawk of South Carolina".

John Speed, Roberts third child (born 25 August 1791) married Martha Calhoun, (daughter of Joseph) and Sarah Speed (Robert's eight child) who was born November 1, 1802 became the wife of John Ewing Calhoun (also Joseph"s child).

Even Robert Speed's will listed John Ewing Calhoun as one of his heirs and appointed him as one of the executors.

Other children of Robert and Elizabeth were Elizabeth (born 26 Jan 1794) James (born 19 May 1795) Wade (born 18 March 1796), Terrel (born 10 March 1799) and possibly Floride (or Florence).

Robert is shown by the previously mentioned State Land Plat Books to have lived in Orangeburg County. This however is not the extent of his moves, for he is shown in the 1800 census report to have been living in Pendleton District (Now Oconee County).

The 1810 U. S. Census Report does not show Robert as living in either Pendleton or Abbeville District. Robert's will which was signed on 2 January 1826, has him still residing in Abbeville County.

It is very likely that Robert retired to Abbeville to spend his last days; for his children, during this period, were beginning to drift away from home.

The reason for the break-up of the Robert Speed family may be attributed to the decline of agriculture in South Carolina and to the movement of the children into new and virgin agricultural areas. The children of Robert Speed were but following the great crowds of migrating farmers who were traveling west and south in search of new land. The loss of citizens to the new States and Territories was an especial cause for alarm on the part of many public-spirited persons. In 1827, an observer near Augusta, Georgia, saw "hordes" of cotton planters with their Negros bound from the Carolinas and Georgia to the Gulf States "where the cotton lands were not worn out".

5. James Stewart Speed was born on 16 Mar 1775 in Anson County, North Carolina, died in Dec 1816 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee at age 41, and was buried in 1816 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee.

General Notes: In an October 1808 Richmond County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions court action, the following heirs of Colonel John Speed, deceased, are mentioned: "James S. Speed, William Peques in right of his wife Sarah (Sally), Elihue Winbourn in right of his wife Catherine, William Michael in right of his wife Martha, who are of full age, and John M. Speed, Rebecca Speed, Polly Speed, Elizabeth Speed, Wages Speed, who are infant children, and of whom Elizabeth is guardian."

A review of the Richmond County Court records following the death of Colonel John Speed seems to indicate some financial and family strife that began to occur in the years following Colonel John Speed’s death in 1806. These court actions are noted:

1. 1807 (July Term) A judgement entered for Abraham Harper against the estate of John Speed was again brought to Court in March 1809.
2. 1809 (August Term) James S. Speed vs Elizabeth Speed and Moses Knight
3. 1809 (September Term) A judgement for McFarland and Ellis vs James S. Speed, William Pegues and (wife) Sally, Elihue Winbourn and (wife) Catherine, William Michael and (wife) Martha Patsy.
4. 1809 (September) A judgement for Archibald McNeil vs James S. Speed and H.W. Covington.
5. 1809 (September to December) Philip Horn vs James S. Speed, Serving Administrator; Elizabeth is guardian of named children, heirs at law of deceased John Speed, who are John M. Speed, Rebecca Speed, Polly Speed, Elizabeth Speed, and Wages Speed.

After 1798, more and more of the Stewart, Speed, Brantly, and Brown family members from Bladen, Anson and Richmond Counties of North Carolina began moving to the Montgomery County area of Tennessee. They resided in the Wells Creek area and around the West Fork of the Red River at Fletcher’s Branch and Barrow Springs. These areas were closer to settlements like Clarksville and Palmyra but with still great concern for Indian attacks. Both Duncan and Charles Stewart (James Speed's cousins) became active in state politics serving in the General Assemblies from 1801 to 1807, representing Robertson and Montgomery Counties.

Montgomery County, Tennessee Court Minutes: January term 1812 (Vol.4 1811-1813 pg.41) show James S. Speed allowed by the Court to keep the ferry on the Red River formerly owned by James Hambleton. He also entered into a bond with Thomas Smith and James Hambleton for $2000. See also pp 159, 91, 110, 195, and 201 where James S. Speed is noted as serving as a juror and where Nancy Speed (Pg. 201) is allowed to keep a ferry on the Red River with bond of $2000 held by James Stewart (James Speed's cousin) & James Hambleton. This gives some credence to a Speed family legend that at one time the family operated several ferries. Even after James’ death in December, 1816, the same court records show where his widow, Nancy Speed, was allowed to keep the ferry on the Red River for some time following his death.

It would appear that during this time the Speed family was involved in moving goods commercially up and down the Red River. The early years of the 1800's were progressive ones, chiefly devoted to the building of roads, railroads and bridges.

All indications are that the family of Nancy Speed, widow of James Stuart Speed, raised her young family for a period of years by running the ferry and possibly farming. The 1830 Montgomery County, Tennessee census shows Nancy Speed as the head of a household with two males, one between twenty and thirty years of age and one between fifteen and twenty years of age. Another son, James Speed, was shown to be a head of household also living nearby with two males, one between ten and fifteen years of age and one under five years of age. The male between ten and fifteen appeared to be black.

Sometime before the 1850 census, Nancy Speed, the widow of James Stuart Speed, moved in with the family of her son, Charles Stuart Speed. Charles had moved to Weakley County, Tennessee sometime between 1841 and 1850. The 1850 Weakley County census showed Charles (age 33) , his wife, Martha (age 32), a twin son and daughter, Mary and George (age 4), a son, Robert (age 5), and Charles’ mother, Nancy (age 65).

Sometime before the 1850 census, Nancy Speed, the widow of James Stuart Speed, moved in with the family of her son, Charles Stuart Speed. Charles had moved to Weakley County, Tennessee sometime between 1841 and 1850. The 1850 Weakley County census showed Charles (age 33) , his wife, Martha (age 32), a twin son and daughter, Mary and George (age 4), a son, Robert (age 5), and Charles’ mother, Nancy (age 65).

Unfortunately, Charles Stuart Speed died on 26 August 1856 leaving his wife, Martha, to raise five children. Twins Mary (called Puss) and George were eight years old, son Robert was five years old, Henry Lewis (called Lute) was three years old, and the youngest son, Charles, was ten months old. This left Martha Cowell Speed with a formidable task in raising their young family alone. Charles was buried at Pleasant Hill Cemetery located across from the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church formed in 1835 just south of Martin, TN at the intersection of Troy Road and Pleasant Hill Road. This was quite near the old Speed farm between Troy Road and Mud Creek just west of Hwy 45E.

When I first found my great great grandfather's grave, the top half of the tombstone was missing and you could not read the name. I had a local monument company probe the ground around the grave and they found the missing upper half of the tombstone. I then had an additional marker made and, along with the upper half of the original tombstone, had both placed in cement on the grave. I had my own name also placed in the marker in hopes that some other family member who might be researching this family line, would contact me if they saw who placed it there. I have since had two contacts made by distant cousins researching relatives buried in that old cemetery.

General Notes: Henry was called "Lewis" or "Lute". He was four years old when his father, Charles S. Speed, died leaving his mother with five children to raise. Although this early history does not reveal much of the detail of how they managed to survive, letters from cousins described how several related families by marriage would share a closeness and live within a close proximity of each other. Just as the Stewarts, Speeds, Brantlys, and Browns intermarried and supported each other in their move from North Carolina to Montgomery County, Tennessee, so too did the Speeds, Cowells, Waggeners, Coles, and Baldridges in their move from Montgomery County to Weakley County.

Following Martha Cowell Speed’s death in 1872, it appears that the four brothers and one sister stayed near Martin, Tennessee in Weakley County until the late 1870's. On 24 August 1877, Henry Lewis Speed married Ada J. Waggener who was suppose to be a second or third cousin. Family records indicate that Ada died shortly after that during childbirth. Neither mother or child survived.

The three brothers and one sister all then moved to Denton County, Texas and are shown in the 1880 census for Denton County. A notation in the census indicates that George Speed, Mary Speed’s twin, had died a year earlier. Living in one household at that time was Henry Lewis Speed (my great grandfather), his sister, Mary Speed, and youngest brother, Charles Speed, along with deceased George Speed’s widow, Anne Lewis Speed, and their daughter, Florence Speed, and Anne’s mother, Martha Lewis. In this census, Henry’s occupation is shown as farmer. Anne’s occupation is shown as housekeeper and Mary Speed is shown as assistant. Robert Stuart Speed and his wife, Cally Burgess Speed, were living in Denton County as a separate household.

During the 1880's, life for this Speed family was changing rapidly. Henry Lewis Speed married Lucy Florence Abbott on 13January 1884 in Denton County. Henry or "Lute" as his brothers and sister called him had already suffered a severe loss from his first marriage back in Weakley County to his cousin, Ada J. Waggener, when she died sometime in 1878 of child birth with the child not surviving either. Henry and Lucy Florence Abbott were married by Sylvestor Mosaly, a preacher and new husband to Henry’s sister, Mary, having married just a year before on 11 March 1883. During 1884, Robert Stuart Speed moved his family to Fort Worth, Texas where they lived until around 1890. Robert and his family then moved to Washita County, Oklahoma where they homesteaded at the time of the Oklahoma land rush. Charles Speed never married and died in Denton or Dallas County on 16-July-1889. Little is known about how he died or where he is buried. George Speed’s widow, Anne Lewis Speed, later married Sam Rhodes and moved to Paradise, Wise County, Texas with her daughter, Florence Speed. Florence Speed died at age 26 and was buried in Paradise Cemetery in Paradise, Wise County, Texas.

During the 1880's, Henry Lewis Speed and Lucy Florence Abbott started their family with their first son, Charles Griffin Speed born in Elzabethtown, Denton County, Texas born on 16-February-1885. Over the next ten to twelve years, the family grew in number and moved from Denton County to Baylor County and to Archer County each time pursuing better farm land at cheaper prices. The other children born during this time were Clara Lavina Speed born 16 October 1887 and died as an infant on 9 August 1888, Edward Lewis Speed (my grandfather) born 26 July 1889, Mable Florence Speed born 8 February 1892, and Mary Bulah Speed born 4 December 1894. Each child was born in a different location as the family migrated west. Clara was born in Denton County, Edward was born in Argyle, Denton County, Mable was born in Baylor County, and Bulah was born in Archer City, Archer County. Baylor and Archer Counties are located south of Wichita Falls, Texas.

In 1897, Henry Lewis Speed is shown in land records to have homesteaded on land near Cordell, Oklahoma in Washita County. His last and youngest child, Esther Catherine Speed, was born 24 October 1899 in Cordell. Henry Lewis Speed lived there for approximately ten years when he sold his farm and homestead for $1,600 on 18 March 1908 and moved his family to Clarendon, Texas.

On 21 March 1917, Henry Lewis Speed died at his home. He had been suffering from a bad flu weeks earlier but had decided to get up out of bed to prepare his garden for spring seeding. Soon he was back in bed experiencing a relapse of the illness. When it became apparent that he was taking a turn for the worse, Henry called his family to his bedside. My grandfather, Ed Speed, always told us the story of how his father made him promise that he would marry and have sons. He was deeply concerned that his Speed line would end without male descendants to carry on the name. At the time, Ed’s brother, Charlie was married to Mary Eugenia Moore and had two daughters, Edith Clara Speed born 26 July 1910 and Catherine (Kitty) Leota Speed born 20 October 1912. Years later, my grandfather Ed would get tears in his eyes when he would tell this story and he would be emotional about how his only son, Homer Charles Speed, had three sons to carry on his Speed line.

General Notes: Obituary: George Maurice Speed.

Dr. George Maurice Speed, 84, loving, caring, and kind husband and father, died Sunday, July 24, 2011, after a long illness.

Born February 2, 1927, in Birmingham, AL, the only child of high school principal Edwin Maurice Speed and elementary school teacher Sallie Mae Douglas Speed, George Speed displayed an unmatched love for his family and respect for his roots.

Drafted into the Army in 1945, he proudly served his country in the Army of Occupation at the end of World War II. He finished his undergraduate studies at Birmingham Southern College after his military service was complete, and he later completed his Masters and Doctoral degrees in mathematics at the George Peabody College for Teachers in Nashville, TN.

After moving to Spartanburg in 1964 to assume the position of Mathematics/Physics Department Head at Converse College, Dr. Speed met and married Gail Elizabeth Williams after a whirlwind courtship; they were happily married for over 41 years. At Converse he enjoyed an almost 40-year career, during which he successfully transitioned from mathematics professor to head of computer operations, a professional challenge that he relished. Coming from a family of devoted educators, Dr. Speed loved to teach, and indeed he touched thousands of young minds and hearts in his career. All who knew him appreciated his intellect, humor, patience, integrity, and generosity of spirit.

Dr. Speed is survived by his loving wife, Gail; his daughter Sallie, of Birmingham; and his son, George, and daughter-in-law, Hillary, of Stillwater, OK. His first grandchild is due on December 30, a fact that gave him immense joy in his final months.

Visitation will be 2:00-3:15 PM Thursday, July 28, 2011, at Floyd’s Greenlawn Chapel. A memorial service will follow at 3:30, in the Chapel, conducted by the Rev. Dr. Steve Holler and the Rev. Heather B. Humphries.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to: Converse College, 580 E. Main St., Spartanburg, SC 29302; or Trinity United Methodist Church, 626 Norwood St., Spartanburg, SC 29302.

Centenarian celebrates a life tied to Hanford, WA.

(This story was published Friday, March 25th, 2005)

By Annette Cary, Herald staff writer

Nicholas A. Speed Jr. still can tell you the day he started work at Hanford during the race to produce plutonium for the nuclear bomb that helped end World
War II: June 19, 1944.

He'd left his family in Arkansas to earn a better living at Hanford. At the time, the average length of employment was 10 days, he said. Workers quickly became
discouraged with the bleak environment and fierce dust storms.

But Speed stuck it out.

Today, he'll celebrate his 100th birthday, still living in the same government- built duplex he was assigned within months of beginning work.

He's the patriarch of a large extended family that would make its way from Arkansas to build a better life in the Tri-Cities. It was just one of many extended families
to arrive in the Tri-Cities the same way from the South, a trend that often seems to be overlooked as the history of the area is retold, say his two sons.

"That was a hard, hard period," said one of those sons, Nicholas Speed III of Hermiston. The South was still trying to recover from the Depression, and years of
cotton crops had depleted the farmland.

The younger Speed's father, known as Nick to co-workers and Allen to family, had made a deal with a brother-in-law, who wanted Allen Speed's help to get his sons out of small-farm poverty. The brother-in-law would take care of the Speed homestead in Heber Springs, Ark., if Speed would take his nephews one at a time, help them get jobs and train them in a craft.

Speed worked construction jobs, lending tools to his nephews and vouching for them to the hiring boss.

One of Speed's jobs was helping build the Oak Ridge, Tenn., plant, the first research and manufacturing site for the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic bomb.

As that job was finishing, he heard that workers were needed for a government project in Washington.

"They gave me $50, and I drove my own car out," Allen Speed said.

One of the nephews he'd helped was already working at Hanford, and Allen Speed came out with a brother-in-law. As soon as they found apartments in Prosser, their families joined them.

"You got housing where you found it," as thousands of people came to the desert to build Hanford, said Nicholas Speed III. "People were living in tents and barracks. People were living a lot farther than Prosser."

The family had lived in a vacant chicken coop during a previous construction job, and Allen Speed's wife, Ollie, had used a tent to cook for the family and other
construction workers.

By fall 1944, the family was assigned a B House in Richland, then a government- owned town.

"She was so happy to have a nice place," Nicholas Speed III said about his mother.

That was despite the sand that drifted in around the window sills, driven by what workers called the "termination winds." They knew many of their co-workers would
resign after each storm.

"Sometimes you minded it," Allen Speed said. "It got so thick you couldn't see."

Allen Speed liked the work.

"I helped build those reactors out there, from digging and pouring the foundations to laying the lead bricks on the roofs," he said.

The project was top secret until newspapers announced that two atomic bombs had been dropped on Japan, and Hanford had made the plutonium for one of them.

"Didn't anybody know what we was doing or what we was making," Allen Speed said. For him, "It was just another construction job."

He spent much of his career as a machinist at the H Reactor site, enjoying the precise work.

He never thought seriously of returning to Arkansas.

And many of his relatives had moved to the Tri-Cities by the early '50s. Workers who brought their families tended to stay, said Nicholas Speed III.

Allen Speed's widowed mother came out and took a job in a Hanford cafeteria. And many of the nephews he helped learn a trade, his wife's four sisters and two of
his sisters and their families came to the Tri-Cities.

Not all the people he helped get settled were family.

One was Curtis Snow of Richland, who'd lived on a farm near the Speeds in Arkansas.

"If I needed to talk to someone, needed fatherly advice or a friend, I'd go see him," Snow said. Allen Speed had a good reputation with his co-workers, too, for being honest and fair, Snow said.

Allen Speed made a good life for himself in Richland. After Ollie died, he met his present wife, Leola, playing cards at the Pasco senior center. They've been married for 33 years.

He grew up on a farm with horses and rode a mule as a young boy to make deliveries from his father's grocery and butcher shop. The horses he kept on pasture in West Richland were a reminder of home, Snow believes. He's particularly fond of Tennessee walkers.

He cared for the horses and rode them until his early 90s and drove a car until a few years ago. Now he cares for his yard, although he thinks he'll find someone to
mow it for him this summer.

"He still walks and stands straight as a string," Snow said. Allen Speed said maybe having a wonderful wife is part of why he's lived so long. But Snow said it's because "of his kind disposition and caring about everyone."

1883. Mark Abbott Speed was born on 13 Apr 1948 in Amarillo, Texas, died on 7 Mar 1989 in Denver, Colorado at age 40, and was buried on 12 Mar 1989 in Clarendon, Texas.

General Notes: Mark was born on 13-April-1948 at Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Amarillo, Texas. Strangely, that is the same name of the hospital in Denver where Mark died. There was only eighteen months difference between Mark’s age and his brother, Richard’s age. Consequently, the two brothers grew up to be very close. During high school both brothers shared the same close circle of friends. Both Richard and Mark became very active and competitive in motorcycle racing. They first became involved in motto-cross races held out north of Amarillo at the Canadian River and then became involved in flat-track motorcycle racing using a steel protected shoe and on a more traditional oval race track. They traveled to compete in races held in Lubbock, Texas, Clovis, New Mexico, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and locally in Amarillo, Texas. Mark and Richard won several awards during their racing careers.

Mark was also an outstanding high school wrestler. While attending Tascosa High School, he won several championship awards in his weight division. Mark was always a fierce competitor but could also be a gracious loser as well as a kind and considerate winner. The current head wrestling coach at Tascosa High School is Johnny Cobb who also wrestled on the same team with Mark. Each year at the end of the wrestling season, Johnny Cobb honors an outstanding wrestler at Tascosa in a special ceremony by awarding the recipient the "Mark Speed Outstanding Wrestler Award". This has been a very touching honor bestowed in Mark’s name and memory. He and Johnny Cobb were also very close friends growing up together.

After high school, Mark enrolled in Amarillo Junior College and later in Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. While in Lubbock, he worked part-time for the Texas Highway Department and pursued a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. This was no easy feat because he and his wife, Marilyn Thomason Speed, were raising a new son, Sean Mark Speed, at the same time Mark was going to school full time. Sean was born in Amarillo on 9-July-1968. After he graduated from Texas Tech, he continued to work for the Texas Highway Department. Mark and Marilyn’s second son, Chad Edward Speed, was born on17-January-1972.

In 1973, Mark applied and was offered a position as a Civil Engineer for the City of Corpus Christi, Texas. He worked under the Water Department as a water treatment plant supervisor and became absorbed about learning the business of water treatment and water distribution. He was highly respected by not only those who worked for him at the treatment plants but also by his own supervisor and department head.

During the years at Corpus Christi, Mark and his family grew from two sons to two sons and a daughter. Wendy Leigh Speed was born on 9-May-1976. These were years when Mark and his family made close, long lasting friendships with neighbors next door to them known as the Pacheco family. Michael and Inez Pacheco and their family of three boys, Michael Jr., Ricky, and Ray, and one girl, Francis (called Franny). Became life long friends with the Mark and his family. The two families went on beach gatherings together and became deeply involved in bicycle motto-cross racing with their blended family of kids.

In 1979, Mark was interviewed and hired to manage the Water Treatment Department for the City of Thornton, Colorado, a suburb near Denver. Although the life in Corpus Christi and the family outings to the gulf beach were close to all their hearts, Mark had always loved the mountains. He saw this move as both an opportunity to live near the mountains and to move into a higher management position in municipal water treatment. These two goals were realized when he moved to Thornton, Colorado with his family.

Life in Colorado was exciting and challenging for Mark over the next several years. He continued to be active in bicycle racing with his children and traveled with them all across the state as well as out of state to compete in the sport. Snow skiing became the new family sport and could be done on the weekends or during the evenings where lighted ski slopes were available. Mark was very devoted to his family and spent many hours working on bikes or repairing skis for the kids.

Starting in 1986, Mark began to have managerial disagreements with members of the Thornton city administration. The disagreements centered around water policy issues and personality differences between himself and a newly hired city manager. The conflicts began to take a toll on Mark by creating an environment of stress and job pressure. About this same time, he and his wife, Marilyn, were having serious relationship difficulties which ultimately ended up in divorce in 1987.

This was a dark period for Mark because of the continued unresolved job pressure and the failure of his marriage. He ultimately resigned from his position at Thornton and began to seek employment elsewhere. He remained very close to many of the employees of the City of Thornton with whom he had made good friends. Many of the same friends also resigned and sought employment with other employers. This bond of friendship manifested itself through the small group gatherings they would all have each week at either a local bar or at someone’s home. Mark, at one time, told me that these friends were the people who helped him cope through this difficult time of his life.

In 1988, Mark and Sarah Orton were married. Sarah had worked with Mark at the City of Thornton in another city department They had become close through this period of job dissatisfaction and became closer following his resignation from the city. It was several months prior to the wedding that Mark was diagnosed with cancer and also within months after being employed by the consulting firm of Puckorius & Associates in Evergreen, Colorado. He and Sarah had just rented and moved into a rustic mountain home in Evergreen, Colorado to be closer to his work.

Mark’s struggle with his cancer was nothing short of heroic. He remained a loving father and brother right up until his death on 7-March-1989. Throughout his life, he was kind and considerate of the feelings of others and many close friends who came to Denver to be there at his memorial service.
