From "Historic homes and places and genealogical and personal memoirs ...", Volume 3 edited by William Richard Cutter pp 860-861

The record of the completed allotment of Charlestown inhabitants Ralph appears as holding five acres. In the great allotment, April 23, 1638, Ralph Sprague received one hundred and twenty-five seventy-five acres. (D. P. Corey's "History of Malden"). On May 2, 1649, that part of Charlestown called Mystic Side was established, now the city of Malden, and Ralph Sprague was made a lieutenant of the train band organized to protect the inhabitants from unfriendly Indians, and the military history dated from that time. Ralph and his brother Richard were the earlier settlers of Malden.

From the old Bell Rock Cemetery, Malden. the entire line of Spragues and their wives, commencing with Ralph, have been removed to Forestdale Cemetery, Malden. Their headstones are more or less legibly inscribed.

(II) Ralph Sprague was about twentynine years of age at the time of his arrival at Salem. According to the Massachusetts Colony Records he took the freeman's oath in May. 1630, and was appointed constable of Charlestown. His name, with that of his wife, Joanna, are in the list of those who were first members of the church in 1632. He is mentioned in the Charlestown Records, April 18, 1634, commissioned with two others to advocate certain interests in the town before the general court; in November, 1636, he was for the first time chosen representative to the general court, and he filled this important post seven different times. In 1649 he was one of a commission to settle the bounds between Mystic Side and Charlestown. "Ralph was," says Frothingham, in "History of Charlestown," "a prominent and valuable citizen, active in promoting the welfare of the town and colony." He died in 1650; his widow afterwards married Edward Converse.
