Sprague Family has played an integral part in the history of the state of Ohio and the nation. I have spent hours researching this family, with my husband and sister’s help, and still have more to do! I hope to complete an application for the Daughters of the American Revolution based on this family, but am still needing one piece of documentation. We are heading to Missouri this summer to look for records there.
What a fascinating family! Hopefully, I will have more information to add to their story soon! Someday I would like to write a series of children's books based on this family.

Rodger II purchased 100 acres from William Penn in Solebury, PA. He also had 50 acres was deeded to him by his father. Rodger II’s parents were Edward Hartley, born May 16, 1666 in England. He arrived with his brother Henry and Edward’s wife, Sarah Midgley, sometime after their marriage in 1693 in England and before the first record of him purchasing land in 1700.
Edward’s mother was Alice Vipoint, whose family was well-known in the English Quaker circles. His father was Rodger Hartley (the first, at least as far as I know). His birth was recorded in the Hardshire Society of Friends in Lancashire, England. There is not any documentation of Edward joining the Society of Friends when he arrived in America, but his sons later did.
