From Paula Rigano-Murray, correspondent, note of September 23rd, 2003
From "The Town of Covington", by Karen Milligan from Historical Wyomin g January 1991, Warsaw, NY. There are two separate Sprague references . The first involves Wm. & John Sprague and their sister, Mrs. Jariu s Cruttenden, the first family of Covington: "From the shadows of th e Green Mountains to the sunny flats of the Oatka came Jarius Cruttend en. It is said that the day of the great eclipse of 1806, he chose hi s land "Here at the Big Spring, a few rods south of where Pearl Cree k empties into the Oatka" he cleared 2 or 3 acres and built a dwelling . He made an agreement with the Holland Land Company at Batavia, an ag reement which was later reneged." pg. 68 There are several more paragr aphs on Cruttenden which I would be happy to transcribe for you if int erested, since his children are Sprague descendants. "About 1807 0r 8 , the brothers of Mrs. Jarius Cruttenden, William and John Sprague, se ttled east on the same lot. William, a hatter soon built a log house a nd opened a shop while John built a tannery in the new settlement." pg . 68
