Searching for parents & ancestry of Sturges Sprague (c.1799–1838), wife of Frances Elizabeth Kempe, whose daughter, Margaret, was a bridesmaid at the marriage of her cousin, Varina Ann Banks Howell, to Jefferson Davis in Natchez, MS, in 1845.
Sturges was in business with Varina's father, William Burr Howell, in Natchez, where Sturges is buried. He was probably born in New York or New Jersey, and died in Shreveport, La.
