About Samuel Borden Sprague

Samuel and Ruhamah Borden Sprague were the grandparents of the subject of this biography. His father, William B. Sprague, was born in South Killingly, and some years later removed to the town of Scotland, then a part of the town of Windham. He married Hannah, daughter of Ebenezer Fuller, of Scotland. The children of this union who grew to mature years were : Samuel B., Hannah M. and James W.

Samuel Borden Sprague was born on the 15th of October, 1823, in South Killingly, and after a common school and an academic education spent some time as a teacher. Preferring, however, the active and healthful pursuits of a farmer, he located on the homestead farm, where he has since resided, his abilities having been chiefly directed in the line of agriculture. He has been more or less active in the arena of politics, and as a republican was in 1877 elected to the Connecticut legislature, serving meanwhile on the committee on roads and bridges. He has been for a long period chairman of the board of selectmen of his town, and at present fills the office of trial justice. His well known integrity and ability have caused his services often to be solicited for the offices of executor, administrator, and for kindred trusts. He is a member of the Congregational church of Scotland, and has at various times been superintendent of the Sabbath school.

Mr. Sprague was, on the 24th of November, 1847, married to Emma, daughter of Nathan Gallup, of Windham, whose death occurred March 28th, 18.78. Their only child, William F., died at the age of four years. He was again married November 28th, -1878, to Lois G., daughter of Mason Burnham, of Scotland.
