In Reply to: Looking for Sprout Family from Iowa by Ralph J Sprout of 242

According to information I received from another researcher, and my research in the 1180 Census, Alfred and Leonard were the sons of C.N. Sprout, a farmer born in NY in 1816. In the 1880 Census, the family is farming near Nevada, Palo Alto Co., IA:

C.N. Sprout, 64 b. NY, father b. NY, mother b. NY
Jane Sprout, 45, born IRE, father born IRE, mother born IRE
Alfred Sprout, 26, born WI
Matilda Sprout, 18, born WI
Leonard Sprout, 14, born WI
Walter Sprout, 8, born WI
Eugene Sprout, 5, born WI

According to information from another researcher:

Alfred m. Married 17 May 1890 (probably in Palo Alto Co., IA) Alice Durant, b. 4 Nov 1865, dau of William Durant and Amanda Barkley
Children: Jess, Raymond, Oscar, Harvey, Edith, Jennie Sprout Dull, Blanche Sprout Schneller, Lester. In the 1880 Census, Alice is working for the Maxwell family next door to the Sprouts as a house maid.

Leonard m. Jennie/Sarah Jane Durant b. 16 June 1868 d. May 1938, dau of William and Amanda
Children: Elmer, LeRoy, Verna Sprout Morris, Ralph Sprout.
