I am looking for the family of Timothy Sprague b. August 7, 1806. Most census he states
he was born in NY but one is listed as Delaware and I think quite possible Delaware Co NY.
He shows up in Monroe Co Michigan in 1830 newly married to Beulah/Bulih Darrow also born
in NY. 2 or 3 children were born there. Then he is in Switzerland Co IN and at least 3
more children are born. One of which is my gr-gr grandmother Amanda born 1840. Then they
move to Lee County Iowa. Their children's names are James M., Mary Ann, Emeline,
Hannah, Daniel Elias, Amanda Lordena, Cecelia Melissa, George D. Mitilda, and Timothy D.
Timothy the father dies in Montrose, IA in 1875. Also found that others of Monroe Co
Michigan had come from Delaware Co NY which led me to think he was from Delaware Co NY. I
read an interesting story of an Ebenezer Sprague who was captured during the Revolution,
who lived in Delaware Co. In Indiana a Hezekiah Sprage lived in that county. He went to
Utah with th!
e Mormons. It is possible
Timothy had converted as the spouse of daughter Amanda was from a Mormon family by the
name of Scranton. Anyone researching the Sprague family that can help me out?
