    3. My e-mail address [email protected] My Sprouse line is from Agusta Co., VA. My grandfather Jacob L., ggrandfather Peter, gggrandfather also Peter. The only records I have to document this line begins with word of mouth of family and finding the the two Peter Sprouse families on the census in Agusta Co. I would appreciate anyone else researching this family.

I hope I get to return to the search field sometime soon, life has been hectic to say the least. It is good to say the sprouse line of watson H.

    3. Jeff, my email is correct. My line is through Josiah McCarlough Sprouse, his son Ira Sprouse born 1854 in Denton Texas, died in Dalhart Texas on 11/4/1919. Ira m Louisa Lucas and later Martha Parks. Children with Louisa Lucas were Felix A. Sprouse, Russia Sprouse, Lilly Sprouse, Robert Sporuse, Katie M. Spouse, Mattie E. Spouse, Nannie Spouse, Bertie Spouse, and David C. Spouse. I'm descended from Bertie Lou Sprouse, born 1889 in Dripping Springs, TX and died in Oroville CA in 1963, through her daughter Valda Francis Ford Hunt, b 1911 died 1994 in Oroville, CA. married to John W. Hunt. Bertie was married to Robert Bickford (name later changed to Ford). Of that marriage three children were born, Thelma (married a Fussell), Robert, and Valda. Hope that clarifies a bit.

    3. I would prefer not to guess. Since I have not studied the Vinson Sprouse line other than what is posted at Jeff's site and a few other facts, I have no idea. If I had to guess, it would probably be no different than you, Vinson. What is the evidence?

Most of my information has come fro the same sources most of you have read a thousand times. Sorting out fact from fiction is my own. First record we have of Vinson is supposedly 1742 in Louisa where Vinson has been summoned to court by Charles Lemay for a note due. We must assume that he is at least 21 years of age and lives in Louisa. This goes on for a number of times before settlement. Then in 1744 in Louisa our Vinson was trespassing on Richard Gregory's property. On 28 March 1746 to 15 May 1747 he was back in court with wife Mary in Albemarle where they accused William Wakelin of assault & trespass , but we are not sure if he moved there or because the boundaries moved from Louisa to Albemarle. There is a small area where the northern section of the South West or Chestnut Mountains are that was part of Fredericksville Parish before it became the whole area north of the Rivanna River. In 1760 a plot of 107 acres lying on the north branches of Ballinger Creek in Albemarle County was surveyed for Thomas Napier by John Staples. Vinson may have worked this land until he received the property in 1780. Then between 1763 and 1764 Vincent and the Gibsons, Gideon and Sarah are at each other in Louisa. 29 Jan 1774 finds Vinson back in Albemarle in an indenture between John Lemay of Louisa and Richard Napier of Albemarle for 23 pounds for land whereon Vinson now lives. Then Vinson is listed on a Tithes list for Trinity Parish in Louisa. 1775 Albemarle he is mentioned in another indenture for land on Island Creek. Back to Louisa 1775, Tithes for Trinity Parish, again in 1776. In 1777 Vincent, William and Henry Sprouse are found in Fluvanna and are added to the tithables for that year in a court held 4 December 1777. At the same time Vincent Sr. is exempt from paying county and public levies in Fluvanna. Does this mean there are two Vincents at this time? This must indicate that he is at least 65 years of age. A Vincent and Thomas Napier traded land and in 1779 Vincent bought 272 acres of land from Napier on Woodsons Creek, called Lawhorn's. A land patent for 282 acres was given Napier 1 Sep 1780. Thomas Napier received 200 acres in Fluvanna on both sides of Ballenger's Creek for 200 L from Vinson Sprouce and Richard Napier, recorded 5 Aug 1779. 1782 finds Vinson on the personal property list of Albemarle (exempt in Fluvanna, taxed in Albemarle?) with 1 free male, 4 cattle and 1 horse. 1785 in Albemarle he has 1 free male, 3 cattle and one horse, 1786 Albemarle he has 1 free male, 2 cattle and one horse and is listed as a delinquent taxpayer for 8 shillings. 1787 Vinson is still in Albemarle and is now taxed for 2 cattle and 1 horse (no free male which suggests he is a younger Vinson whose son just became of age and on his own. This is when John appears on the tax list with 1 cattle and 1 horse, perhaps the son of Vinson. Now 1790 and Vinson is back in Fluvanna signing a petition to keeping the original spellings for Fluvanna(???) and not to dissolve Fluvanna. In 1800 we find two Vincent Sprouses in Union, South Carolina Census. Anyone still with me think one of these is the senior Vinson? I believe it is Jr. and son or another Vinson. One Vinson is listed as 45& over and with a female 16-25 and a female 45 & over. The other 2 males under 10 1 male 24 to 44 one female 16 to 25 and 2 slaves. My theory is the Vinson Sr. in Fluvanna stayed in Fluvanna and Jr. went to Albemarle then SC with his family. Remember in 1777, Sr was exempt from taxes. This distinction to me means there must have been a Jr at least 21 and he was paying taxes in Albemarle in 1782. The land in 1790 could have been the Juniors first piece of land. Then in 1800 SC, Vincent there who is 45 & over could be this Jr. and the Jr. in SC his son. This would also explain why or how 100+ year old was invented. That's my theory. Fire away!!!

This is when John appears on the tax list with 1 cattle and 1 horse, perhaps the son of Vinson. Now 1790 and Vinson is back in Fluvanna signing a petition to keeping the original spellings for Fluvanna(???) and not to dissolve Fluvanna. In 1800 we find two Vincent Sprouses in Union, South Carolina Census. Anyone still with me think one of these is the senior Vinson? I believe it is Jr. and son or another Vinson. One Vinson is listed as 45& over and with a female 16-25 and a female 45 & over. The other 2 males under 10 1 male 24 to 44 one female 16 to 25 and 2 slaves. My theory is the Vinson Sr. in Fluvanna stayed in Fluvanna and Jr. went to Albemarle then SC with his family. Remember in 1777, Sr was exempt from taxes. This distinction to me means there must have been a Jr at least 21 and he was paying taxes in Albemarle in 1782. The land in 1790 could have been the Juniors first piece of land. Then in 1800 SC, Vincent there who is 45 & over could be this Jr. and the Jr. in SC his son. This would also explain why or how 100+ year old was invented. That's my theory. Fire away!!!

Sprouse and his family are listed on the 1900 Census, but on the 1910 census his wife is listed as a widow, so he died before 1910. The 1900 Census reads as follows: State of Alabama, County of Bullock, Precinct #2 Enon Sprouse, Charles H., b.

    3. Jeff, I guess once again it will be a two way discussion on this list. It appears to me that we somewhat agree on the Vinsons. However, it may be a lot easier to follow if we discuss one at a time and take it from there. Vinson/Vincent Sprouce/Sprouse b. abt 1720 I believe the original Vinson, born possibly in Virginia, around 1720 never left Virginia. If he had a son George vice John, he may well be the son of George Sprouse of Maryland. These are the records I have found and the source. If everyone else will do the same then we can eliminate the innuendos perpetrated through the years. I will be attempting to get pictures of the real deal in the future, unless someone out there already has them.

Most of my information has come fro the same sources most of you have read a thousand times. Sorting out fact from fiction is my own. First record we have of Vinson is supposedly 1742 in Louisa where Vinson has been summoned to court by Charles Lemay for a note due. We must assume that he is at least 21 years of age and lives in Louisa. This goes on for a number of times before settlement. Then in 1744 in Louisa our Vinson was trespassing on Richard Gregory's property. On 28 March 1746 to 15 May 1747 he was back in court with wife Mary in Albemarle where they accused William Wakelin of assault & trespass , but we are not sure if he moved there or because the boundaries moved from Louisa to Albemarle. There is a small area where the northern section of the South West or Chestnut Mountains are that was part of Fredericksville Parish before it became the whole area north of the Rivanna River. In 1760 a plot of 107 acres lying on the north branches of Ballinger Creek in Albemarle County was surveyed for Thomas Napier by John Staples. Vinson may have worked this land until he received the property in 1780. Then between 1763 and 1764 Vincent and the Gibsons, Gideon and Sarah are at each other in Louisa. 29 Jan 1774 finds Vinson back in Albemarle in an indenture between John Lemay of Louisa and Richard Napier of Albemarle for 23 pounds for land whereon Vinson now lives. Then Vinson is listed on a Tithes list for Trinity Parish in Louisa. 1775 Albemarle he is mentioned in another indenture for land on Island Creek. Back to Louisa 1775, Tithes for Trinity Parish, again in 1776. In 1777 Vincent, William and Henry Sprouse are found in Fluvanna and are added to the tithables for that year in a court held 4 December 1777. At the same time Vincent Sr. is exempt from paying county and public levies in Fluvanna. Does this mean there are two Vincents at this time? This must indicate that he is at least 65 years of age. A Vincent and Thomas Napier traded land and in 1779 Vincent bought 272 acres of land from Napier on Woodsons Creek, called Lawhorn's. A land patent for 282 acres was given Napier 1 Sep 1780. Thomas Napier received 200 acres in Fluvanna on both sides of Ballenger's Creek for 200 L from Vinson Sprouce and Richard Napier, recorded 5 Aug 1779. 1782 finds Vinson on the personal property list of Albemarle (exempt in Fluvanna, taxed in Albemarle?) with 1 free male, 4 cattle and 1 horse. 1785 in Albemarle he has 1 free male, 3 cattle and one horse, 1786 Albemarle he has 1 free male, 2 cattle and one horse and is listed as a delinquent taxpayer for 8 shillings. 1787 Vinson is still in Albemarle and is now taxed for 2 cattle and 1 horse (no free male which suggests he is a younger Vinson whose son just became of age and on his own. This is when John appears on the tax list with 1 cattle and 1 horse, perhaps the son of Vinson. Now 1790 and Vinson is back in Fluvanna signing a petition to keeping the original spellings for Fluvanna(???) and not to dissolve Fluvanna. In 1800 we find two Vincent Sprouses in Union, South Carolina Census. Anyone still with me think one of these is the senior Vinson? I believe it is Jr. and son or another Vinson. One Vinson is listed as 45& over and with a female 16-25 and a female 45 & over. The other 2 males under 10 1 male 24 to 44 one female 16 to 25 and 2 slaves. My theory is the Vinson Sr. in Fluvanna stayed in Fluvanna and Jr. went to Albemarle then SC with his family. Remember in 1777, Sr was exempt from taxes. This distinction to me means there must have been a Jr at least 21 and he was paying taxes in Albemarle in 1782. The land in 1790 could have been the Juniors first piece of land. Then in 1800 SC, Vincent there who is 45 & over could be this Jr. and the Jr. in SC his son. This would also explain why or how 100+ year old was invented. That's my theory. Fire away!!!

Most of my information has come fro the same sources most of you have read a thousand times. Sorting out fact from fiction is my own. First record we have of Vinson is supposedly 1742 in Louisa where Vinson has been summoned to court by Charles Lemay for a note due. We must assume that he is at least 21 years of age and lives in Louisa. This goes on for a number of times before settlement. Then in 1744 in Louisa our Vinson was trespassing on Richard Gregory's property. On 28 March 1746 to 15 May 1747 he was back in court with wife Mary in Albemarle where they accused William Wakelin of assault & trespass , but we are not sure if he moved there or because the boundaries moved from Louisa to Albemarle. There is a small area where the northern section of the South West or Chestnut Mountains are that was part of Fredericksville Parish before it became the whole area north of the Rivanna River. In 1760 a plot of 107 acres lying on the north branches of Ballinger Creek in Albemarle County was surveyed for Thomas Napier by John Staples. Vinson may have worked this land until he received the property in 1780. Then between 1763 and 1764 Vincent and the Gibsons, Gideon and Sarah are at each other in Louisa. 29 Jan 1774 finds Vinson back in Albemarle in an indenture between John Lemay of Louisa and Richard Napier of Albemarle for 23 pounds for land whereon Vinson now lives. Then Vinson is listed on a Tithes list for Trinity Parish in Louisa. 1775 Albemarle he is mentioned in another indenture for land on Island Creek. Back to Louisa 1775, Tithes for Trinity Parish, again in 1776. In 1777 Vincent, William and Henry Sprouse are found in Fluvanna and are added to the tithables for that year in a court held 4 December 1777. At the same time Vincent Sr. is exempt from paying county and public levies in Fluvanna. Does this mean there are two Vincents at this time? This must indicate that he is at least 65 years of age. A Vincent and Thomas Napier traded land and in 1779 Vincent bought 272 acres of land from Napier on Woodsons Creek, called Lawhorn's. A land patent for 282 acres was given Napier 1 Sep 1780. Thomas Napier received 200 acres in Fluvanna on both sides of Ballenger's Creek for 200 L from Vinson Sprouce and Richard Napier, recorded 5 Aug 1779. 1782 finds Vinson on the personal property list of Albemarle (exempt in Fluvanna, taxed in Albemarle?) with 1 free male, 4 cattle and 1 horse. 1785 in Albemarle he has 1 free male, 3 cattle and one horse, 1786 Albemarle he has 1 free male, 2 cattle and one horse and is listed as a delinquent taxpayer for 8 shillings. 1787 Vinson is still in Albemarle and is now taxed for 2 cattle and 1 horse (no free male which suggests he is a younger Vinson whose son just became of age and on his own. This is when John appears on the tax list with 1 cattle and 1 horse, perhaps the son of Vinson. Now 1790 and Vinson is back in Fluvanna signing a petition to keeping the original spellings for Fluvanna(???) and not to dissolve Fluvanna. In 1800 we find two Vincent Sprouses in Union, South Carolina Census. Anyone still with me think one of these is the senior Vinson? I believe it is Jr. and son or another Vinson. One Vinson is listed as 45& over and with a female 16-25 and a female 45 & over. The other 2 males under 10 1 male 24 to 44 one female 16 to 25 and 2 slaves. My theory is the Vinson Sr. in Fluvanna stayed in Fluvanna and Jr. went to Albemarle then SC with his family. Remember in 1777, Sr was exempt from taxes. This distinction to me means there must have been a Jr at least 21 and he was paying taxes in Albemarle in 1782. The land in 1790 could have been the Juniors first piece of land. Then in 1800 SC, Vincent there who is 45 & over could be this Jr. and the Jr. in SC his son. This would also explain why or how 100+ year old was invented. That's my theory. Fire away!!!
