James:I would love to make a Sproat connection!So far I haven't had much luck. My husband descends from a Martha Sproat, born abt. 1801 (one census record shows PA, and another shows OH).Martha married a George Boyles (b. 1800 in Athens Co Ohio). The relocated to Andrew Co MO, and that is where Martha died.I believe at some point they spent some time either Iowa or Indiana, as they had a child born there.
We have a lot of information for the Boyles family and for the children and desc. of George and Martha.We would love to further this Sproat line.I hope some of this is familiar to you.I will be happy to give you further and more detailed info (childrens names dates etc.) if you are at all interested.
Thanks for your posting.
