I saw your note on Demster Sprague's memorial. I thought you might find this interesting:

"Doane Robinson's encyclopedia of South Dakota"
Published by the author, Pierre, S. D., 1925
Transcribed for Genealogy Trails by Sara Hemp

The Company Descriptive Book of Company B, Dakota Cavalry, 1862-1865:

"Demster B. Sprague, age 34. Born in Seneca, Ohio. Farmer. Enlisted March 31, 1863 at Elk Point, S.D., under Capt. Tripp. Honorably discharged at muster out, 1865. Was a Sioux Falls pioneer of 1859. He was a teamster in the service, and regarded weak mentally. He died in Yankton about 1870 quite suddenly from the effects of excessive drinking of intoxicants given him by his associates during an early day carnival."

You had no death dates. I found Lydia's death date as 1987 on FamilySearch. However - the cemetery gives a location where there is no marker. Since I had no death date for Gonzalo, the cemetery cannot look for him. The location for Lydia is Section "C"Tier 9, grave #34. I put a flower marker at that spot for a photo. If you want it removed, let me know.

William D Sprague
Hi Matt,

In looking at some trees submitted I ran across an entry stating that William D Sprague married a Margaret Hayden Smith Fleetwood. It suggests that she put in for his military pension. Do you know if this is correct?

I'll be interested in hearing what you find out. My Dad always said she was Indian. He passed away Feb. 2011. Thank You. Matt

RE: Armittie Sprague Fleetwood
Hi Matt. The only photo I had of Armittie I posted on this site. Do you know if she was part Indian. She sure looked like she was. If you find any other photos of her or her Mother I would love to see them. Thanks. Lila

Armittie Sprague Fleetwood
Hello. Does anyone in your family have any photos of Armittie? She was my Dad (Earl Fleetwood's) Grandmother. I read somewhere that her Mother Rachel was a German lady. I believe Armittie looked a lot like an Indian. So did her son William Fleetwood. Do you know anything about their background? Thanks. Lila Fleetwood Spence

Emma E. Hancock

Sorry I hit the button accidentally.

I am trying to figure out Emma.

I had her in my data base as Elizabeth Emma Hancock. Was the Hancock a first spouse? She is listed as the daughter of Indiana S. Shelton who was married to William Coats. I have not been able to connect Indiana to any of my Coats, but it is on her headstone. I am surmising that the Shelton was Indiana's married name. So was Elizabeth Emma actually Elizabeth Emma Shelton.

The child Leota Hancock Sprague was born prior to Emma's marriage to William Haywood Dobbs. Therefore, I am assuming the Emma E. Hancock is her marred name from a first spouse.

If you are related to these persons I hope you can help me out so that I can correct some of what I have.

Hoping for your help. And have a nice day.

Hi Matt,

My name is Pat Sager. Brother Sprague was a member of Pentecostals of Saraland and I am too. We didn't know him well but have wonderful memories of him at church. He loved the kids and was always joking with them. He would tell the girls "you're a handsome little boy" or tell the boys, you're a pretty little girl" just to get them going. He would also make one arm look shorter than the other and tell them one was shorter. He had all kinds of jokes to tell everyone...just a sweet, funny man. We love Sister Sprague too. Kept us laughing.

The church cemetery called and said to their knowledge he was not buried there. However,
there was a fire and records could've been
burned up, but he does not remember the name.

Hi Matt,
I made an attempt at walking thru the cemetery -
lots of illegible stones. Called the Church to get
some info on location - when they call back I'll try again hopefully next weekend. Sorry.

Hi Matt,

Are you sure the Union Pres Cemetery is in
Carnegie? I know there is one in Robinson Twp.
beyond Carnegie.
If you have a plot no. or such I can some time
try to find the grave for you.
