Hi John: I don't have my complete Spraggs information with me. However I have a Thomas Spraggs ba ca 1729 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. He married Mary Carman 31 Oct 1752 in Hempstead. Thomas was a Loyalist in the revolutionary war, and moved to New Brunswick. One of his daughters was Hannah who married Daniel Odell of New York, also a loyalist. He also moved to New Brunswick. Thomas died 22 Feb 1812 in Springfield, New Brunswick.
I am trying to find information on Daniel Odell if you run across him.

Have you been able to trace Ruby back to the immigrant Edward Spragg, b. 1616. If you have I would be interested in your research. If not let me know and maybe I can help. Edward Spragg b. 1616 was likely related to the Spragg family from Worcestershire, England.

Your second generation should be John Spragg not Edward Spragg. Also be careful with the reference to Hester Kurch. She is only mentioned in the Horn papers which I am sure you know are less than reliable.

I would be very interested in any information you might have on the later Spraggs. You can reach me directly at
