Census 1850*9 October 1850Reuben H. and Sophia Spicer appeared on the 1850 census taken on 9 October 1850 in Township 14 N R 1 W, Mercer County, Illinois. The census taker's accuracy leaves much to be desired, and the record's transcription is also questionable. The record indicates that the Spicer's real estate holdings were valued at $5,000 and they had five children in their household. "Alivica" was enumerated as age 9 although Sarah Amelia was actually 12 and two years older than her sister, Augusta spelled "Autusta", who was recorded as 10. The 9-year-old Edgar Lewis was not enumerated with the family. Talbot, transcribed as "Salbot" was 7 and the two youngest children, Charles F. and Lucy were 5 and 2 respectively.2
Census 1860*25 June 1860Reuben H. and Sophia Spicer appeared on the 1860 census taken on 25 June 1860 in Township 14 N 1 W (Oxford Post Office), Mercer County, Illinois. The values of the Spicer's real estate and personal estate in 1860 were $20,000 and $2,000 respectively and they had ten children in their household. Sarah was 21 and working as a School Teacher, as was her sister Augusta who was 19. All of the other children, with the exception of the two youngest, were attending school. Lewis was 17, Talbot, recorded as "Albert" was 15, Charles-13, Lucy-11, Reuben-9, Frank-6, "Minna May"-3 and Mary was recorded as 5 months.3

Ebenezer Sprout1

(Inventory Preparer) Administration15 November 1710Francis Barker and Ebenezer Sprout prepared the inventory of the estate of Jabez Pratt before Administration on the estate was opened on 15 November 1710 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), Jonathan Pratt and Joseph Stockbridge were appointed the administrators. The Letters of Administration document stated that Jabez, late of Duxbury, had died intestate and that the administrators were to prepare and provide an inventory of his estate to the Probate Court before 22 December. The inventory, valued at about £54.65s.23p had already been prepared, however, by Francis Barker and Ebenezer Sprout on the last day of October 1710, two weeks before administration was opened. The inventory identified books, wearing apparel, a horse, saddle and bridle, a pair of oxen, 3 cows, a swine, a yoke and chains and other tools for husbandry, hay and fodder, corn, salt, pewter, wooden vessels, 8 pounds of butter, iron vessels for housekeeping, chairs, a table, stools and lumber, a small pot, a debt from Joseph Stockbridge, a parcel of apple trees and a mention of 2 items at a Taunton estate. An additional note dated 15 Nov 1710, the same date the administrators were appointed, stated that Elizabeth Pratt, relict widow of the deceased, had refused to administer the estate. No mention of his and Elizabeth's children, all minors, was found in the probate documents.2
