Summary
Includes documents relating to, or created by, members of the Sprague family of Hingham, Mass. These materials were produced between approximately 1709 and 1973. The majority of the items concern either Isaac Sprague (1811-1895) or Hosea Sprague (1779-1843). These records include books, newspaper articles, artwork, obituaries, essays, and letters created between 1802 and 1973. Some of the materials were created or collected by Isaac and Hosea Sprague, while others were written about them nearly one century later. They discuss both the professional and private lives of these two individuals, including their hobbies, their families, and professional successes. The rest of the collection contains miscellaneous materials owned and/or created by other members of the Sprague family between 1709 and 1844. While there are day book pages and receipts that focus on the family members' professional lives, the majority of the records are deeds, wills, and letters that touch principally upon their personal lives
