Indexes and abstracts relating to Sprague and Sprague-derivative surnames

"Index to War of 1812 Pension Files Volume II: J-Z"
Transcribed by Virgil D. White. Waynesboro TN: The National Historical Publishing Company, 1992. LCCN: 92-061322. ISBN: 0-945099-20-7 (2 Vol Set) Revised Edition.

Summary of the introduction:
      Prepared from National Archives Series M313 "Index to War of 1812 Pension Files", 102 microfilm reels. This series [includes] claims based on service between 1812 and 1815. The claims for the most part based on the acts of 1871 and 1878. The act of 1871 provided pensions for veterans who had been cited by Congress for specific service if they had remain faithful to the United States during the Civil War. The act of 1878 provided pensions of more liberal terms, the veteran who had served as few as fourteen days in any engagement, and to widows of such veterans.
      There is a cross-reference index to the wives, widows and other family members (58,126 entries) as shown in the main index. The maiden name of the wives/widows is shown when they were available in the main index.
     Contains surnames: Spragen, Spraggins, Spragin, Sprague, Spraher, and Sprake and others.

"DAR Patriot Index Volume III P-Z: Alternate Name Cross Index"

Published for the Society by Gateway Press INC, Baltimore MD, 2003

  • DAR has published multiple versions of the "DAR Patriot Index" over the decades. You have at least three DAR sources in the data base.
  • This edition appears quite precise editorially, most likely computer generated, and data is limited to the following: Under each surname spelling/alternatives, each given name is followed by: birth (or baptism) date/State/death date/State/marriage number(s) /name and surname of spouse(s)/military rank/State from which served. If marriage sequence is known, it is shown numerically; if not the multiple marriages are shown with an "X". Correct or not, this listing is unambiguous.
  • Since DAR membership devolves from those Patriots who sired children, unmarried Sprague patriots are omitted.
  • Such is the fate of unmarried men who die in wartime . . .I have three relatives who died in WWII and they are all but forgotten by my kin.
