Bio Photo My ancestors have their origins in Highland Scotland, England, and in the Rhineland. The English families were among the earliest colonists to arrive in Massachussetts, Connecticut, and New York. I perform genealogical research in German and Spanish as well as English.

Julie De Greiff Gropius
Hi TropiConsul,

On this website you posted Julie Eveline De Greiff Gropius as a daughter of Moritz and Wilhelmine Amalie Heydweiller, which she isn't.

Julie is the daughter of Isaac de Greiff.
Moritz and Wilhelmine Amalie Heydweiller had a son in mid may 1837. Even when Wilhelmine Amalie Heydweiller got pregnant right after labour, the child wouldn't have lived when born in december 1837. proves me right.

Lt Jonathan Sprague
Hi Tropi,
I concur with two Jonathan Spragues. I am looking for the grave site of the Patriot, not the Loyalist. From information available, I believe the Johnathan in Huron Cemetery is the loyalist, with a dod of 1823. The DAR got it wrong with the memorial and the Huron Cemetery memorial should not be attached to this gravesite. Perhaps a note should be included in the bio to clarify the confusion that exists in Find A Grave.

Lt Jonathan Sprague (1742-1814)
Hi Brenda,
Is this the Old Huron Cemetery, Main St, Huron, OH 44839, (419) 433-5000? Can you change the Cemetery location to Huron, Erie County, Ohio?
I have several places of death for Lt. Jonathan Sprague, Sr. (1742-1814). The headstone has the date 1823? Is this year of death?
My other sources show dod 23 Dec 1814. Places are Huron County, Ohio and Oxford, Huron, Ohio. I would go with Huron, Erie, Ohio for pod, as Oxford is in Butler County in the SW border of Ohio. Is there an Oxford in Erie County, I have not found one. Do you know where he moved south with his son? His father, Joseph Sprague, Sr., is my 6th great grandfather and Jonathan is my 5th great grand uncle. Just linking family members.
This message is a duplicate of the one I attempted to send with the Memorial.
Thank you,
Daniel Lee Conrad

Johnathan Sprague
The headstone for "Johnathan Sprague" at Huron Cemetery, is actually not a headstone at all, but was just a 1930's memorial placed by the local D.A.R.
Unfortunately this local DAR group made many errors, including much wrong info inscribed on these DAR monuments.
Johnathan's "DAR headstone" seems to have been intended to honor the Jonathan Sprague of Bloomingville, Oxford Twp.; because the information inscribed sems to duplicate that other Jonathan's Rev.War service record.

Rev. Daniel McDonald

I happened to notice that you created an entry for Rev. McDonald in an "Auburn Cemetery" in Cayuga County, NY. However, there never was a cemetery by that name in this region, and it evidently was added to the Findagrave cemetery roster in error. If the Reverend is buried in the city of Auburn, NY, his grave is most likely in St. Peter's Churchyard, the burial ground adjoining the Episcopal church where he had served. The Cayuga County, NY, GenWeb site indicates that a Daniel McDonald is among the burials in St. Peter's Churchyard, but the transcriber noted having difficulty with the inscription, which was in Latin.

Best regards,

RE: Mahala [Daly] Sprague
We went to Scott Cemetery tonight to check for Mahala. Jonathan is on the monument by himself. There is a tiny JSS marker beside the monument and another next to the JSS which is unreadable. The unreadable marker could be your Mahala but there is no way of telling. There is nothing but Jonathan's info in the monument. The other 3 sides of the monument are empty. If you would like to see the pictures of the markers and the monument let me know and I'll e-mail them to you or put it on Jonathan's memorial.

All your Sprague family appear to be in the same area one row behind Jonathan's monument. They are in the large center section beside a road. This section is behind the main cemetery sign and it is an old section of the cemetery.

I hope this helps. Pam Colvin
