Archer Jack Spencer
Ted Wright's Grandson Born In Australia To Emily & Tyler Spencer

Archer Jack Spencer was born August 29, 2019, in Launceston, Australia, weighing in at 9lbs 4oz . His parents are Emily and Tyler Spencer who reside in the Tasmanian state of Australia.

Grandparents are Ted Wright, Collinsville, OK, USA; Patti Jarrell, Elk City, OK, USA; and Anne & Geoffry Spencer, Warrnambool, Australia. Archer has one living Great-grandparent, Joan Chilton of Warrnambool, Australia.

Archer's mother, Emily is a 2003 Collinsville High School graduate. Archer is a great-great-great grandson of the late W.L. Wright who founded The Collinsville News in 1899, in Collinsville, Indian Territory. Archer is also a great-great-great-grandson of W. A. Keys who was Collinsville's police chief in 1913.

Apparently Father's Day in Australia is celebrated (instead of America's Labor Day) on September 1st ... so Archer's arrival time netted him (and first-time father Tyler) some local newspaper and TV coverage. Mother Emily at least got an honorable mention on Father's Day. Also wanted to note that he was born "tomorrow" as it was still August 28th here in the USA when he arrived on the other side of the globe. And he is my first grand child! Congratulations to Emily, Tyler & Archer. -- Ted Wright
