Looking for any information on Jas. Kidd Spratt b.1830 in NY, married to Patience Waters b.1835 in NY. Jas lived in NY and was a thread dealer. Patience was born in NY., her parents also born in NY but I have no names for the parents according the 1880 census. Patience has a sister named Margaret b.1830, married to Jas. Merritt b. 1824. Jas and Patience had 5 children. Annie, James, Breakley, George and Buwhem and I can follow the family line to the present, however, would like any info or suggestions to obtain information previous to the 1880 census if possible. Would also be happy to share my information.  I am trying to find out when our original Spratt immigrated to the US from England. spra123
