Aka: Grasshopper Cemetery
Judge Levi Green was the original owner of the land Sprague cemetery lies on, and his infant son was the first burial in 1827.
It is located in Sect.34,T5S,R4W of Perry Co. and is in Lost Prairie Township. At last word, was still owned by heirs of Levi Green.
The information here is from Thomas Sprague (s/o Averill Sprague,Jr.) and Grace (Brittain)Bonner (d/o Alfred Brittain), and was passed on by Mildred Beth (Bonner)Jewitt, d/o Mrs. Bonner, and has been since published in "Perry Co. Cemeteries".
I have yet to walk this cemetery myself (other family members have), but hope to soon. Personal information about the interred is from the families with as many dates/places confirmed with state records, as possible.

If anyone has additional information about any family at this cemetery (especially Brittains or Spragues), please contact "macklin" here at Findagrave.com
