Sprague, William Smith (1922-2007)

Memorial stone at Wallkill Cemetery, aka Phillipsburg Cemetery in the Town of Wallkill, Orange County, NY

Per William G. Sprague,
I always wondered what happened to William Smith Sprague, I257961, who had his birth date of Feb. 17, 1922 listed on the stone, but no date of death listed. His brother Richard Sprague was the victim of a hit and run fatal car accident at the age of 10. Both parents are there so I figured that he must have moved away. I did some searching on the SSDI and found he had died on August 24, 2007 in Denver Colorado and then checked and found his obituary in the Denver Post published Sept. 2, 2007. He died a year after I worked on the family. Below is the information that I uncovered. I have a photo of his name and birth date taken from the stone in Wallkill Cemetery, but it is interesting to note that in fact he is buried in the Fort Logan National Cemetery and not in the Wallkill Cemetery. I suspect that his parents bought the plot and had is name cut into the stone when his brother was killed. Fort Logan National Cemetery is located in the City of Denver, Denver County, Colorado. It is posted on and I checked the listings and found that although there are several Sprague’s there, William Smith Sprague is not among them. It appears that no deaths since the year 2000 have been posted yet. I guess that like the government, they are years behind on everything.
