First Name:

The Philip R. Sprague Family of Washington State

Updated March 6, 2003

About Our Family Research

The surname Sprague, Sprag, Spragg, etc. has been traced to two locations for immigrant ancestry, Boston, in the year 1623, and New York, in the 1620's. I descend from the New York family, Edward Spragg being the first of our line on Long Island in the 1630's. I believe this line and the line from Boston both descend from the Sprag's of Dorchester, Dorset, England, but I have yet to prove this connection. Is their any of our line out there who have found the link between the two families? I have the allied lines of Phelps, Reese, Fay, Shutter, Smith, and Allison. Additionally the name Golder, Van Salee and other Long Island families are my ancestors. I have extensive records,(family groups and pedigree charts) on all of these lines and others. I am willing to share informatiion by e-mail or other means with those who have similar lines. My Sprague lines went from New York to The Bay of Quinte, Ontario, Canada around 1810. My second great grandfather, Samuel Parmenus Sprague moved from Canada to Canton and Prosper, Fillmore County, Minnesota around 1856. From Minnesota, my great grandfather, John Franklin Sprague came west to Washington State around the turn of the century and settled in Spokane, Washington. My maternal lines are Hudson, Rollins, Mills, Woolf, and others who originally came across the plains with Brigham Young in the great Mormon migration of 1847. Many were sent to Cardston, Alberta, Canada to settle that country. Pleas e-mail me if you have a connection or are looking for a connection. Sincerely, Philip Sprague
