Classification: Query
Surnames: Sperry
I've stumbled across a book titled "Our Sperry Family Line - 1586 - 1968. The inside cover says: "The Sperry Family Line - of Jeremiah Sperry of Minnesota 1802 - 1870. Descendants of Richard Sperry of the New Haven Colony 1615 - 1698." It was written in 1969.

The book (120 pages) is a chronological history that list 290 dates over the 382 years covered. There are over 250 surnames and over 900 individuals mentioned. Also included are photographs and maps of both England and the US.

Places mentioned:
Northhamptonshire, Ringstead, England
Bedfordshire, Kempston, England
Suffolk, Rattkensden, England
Connecticut
Western New York State
Southern Michigan
Ohio River Valley
Minnesota

Some of the names mentioned:
**Richard Sperry (1615-1698) and Dennes (1627 - 1707)
**Nathaniel Sperry (1656 - 1735) and Sarah Dickerman (1704 - ?)
**Joshua Sperry (1700 - 1777) and Amy Munson 1704 - ?)
**Lent Sperry (1742 - 1823) and Rachel Peck (1748 - 1823)
**Eldad Sperry (1776 - 1821) and Lucenda Sperry (1779 - 1818)
**Jeremiah Sperry (1802 - 1870) and Jerusha Osborne (1805 - 1863)

Someone has gone to a lot of work...I wish this had been done for my family. That said, I'd like to find a home for this book. If you're interested just respond to this email.
