- Morgan L. Tyler...came as far west as Monroe Co., N.Y., in the spring of 1837, and remained there till the fall, when he continued his journey, in company with Archibald Grove, Daniel Sprague, and M. B. Barnhart. After crossing the lake, they landed at Toledo, and came from there by ox-teams, traveling by the way of Adrian, Jonesville, and Coldwater, leaving the Chicago road at the latter place, and proceeding eight miles northwest to “Hodunk,” now called Orangeville, where Peter Grove, a brother-in-law of Mr. Tyler, was living. At this point they left their families while preparing homes for their reception, and then moved upon their places. Mr. Barnhart setted in Union, the others in this town: Archibald Grove on section 4, Daniel Sprague on the northwest quarter of section 4...
Daniel Sprague was accompanied by his wife, one child, and his brother John. Daniel continued to live in this town until his death, which occurred in 1873. John went away and served in the Black Hawk war. He afterwards returned to this town, settled on section 4, and died here several years later.
Daniel Sprague was an assessor for Batavia twp. in 1846.
