Let’s back up and have a look at the Spemanns who married into the Gebauer family in 1933. Adolf Spemann (in photo), hailed from Karlsruhe and was born in 1878. He appears to have arrived in Samoa in the early 1900’s. Mr Spemann married Lucy Warns (pronounced ‘Vance’ in German), also pictured, who was from Aleipata.
