I'm also a descendant of the Sprout line, and I think the Alfred Sprout you included in your original message may be my gggrandfather Alfred Levi (Levy?) Sprout, my dad's ggrandfather. He has some photos of Alfred & wife Alice Elizabeth Durant, as well as some of Edith Viola Sprout (their daughter) and her husband, Sidney S. Howard.
I would love to see those photos, if you can send them.
