            “... The next settlement was north on Crab Creek, some 18 miles, and was composed of the following: Jack Harding, Noah Willey, the Bacons, consisting of two brothers and a sister, who kept the Crab Creek post office, and a man called Grizzly—if he had any other name I never heard it.” (edit: Grizzly was Isaac Revenaugh)

The funeral services will take place from the Baptist church at 2 PM, Dec 24th. A large concourse of friends will mourn her departure from this world.” (LCT of Dec 27, 1895)


Bassett, Edwin Fisk: Lincoln Co Auditor’s Deeds show that H S Bassett purchased Lot 45 in Block 10  which was filed on Apr 11, 1896. Their “Family Records” book shows: “Edwin Fisk Bassett, their first child was born at Sprague, Washington, on the 29th day of April 1894 at 2 o’clock and 15 minutes p.m., attending physician W D Buchanan. Dropsy of the scrotum. Consumption of the bowels. Was baptized by Rev C E Alford of M E Church of Sprague, at Sprague, Wash., Sunday Sept 9th, 1894 at 3 o’clock a.m. at home.

Was buried at Lake View Cemetery-Lot 45, Block 10 on the 10th day of Sept 1894.” This same book identifies the parents of Edwin Fisk Bassett as Herman Sherman Bassett born Fairfax Co, Virginia on Oct 27, 1869 and Nettie Adelaid Judd  born Horicon, Wisconsin on the 17th of June 1870. Nettie married Herman on 14 June 1893.

Benninghoff, Catherine: b. Jul 29, 1861, d. Sep 25, 1891" Perhaps the largest funeral procession that ever paraded the streets of Sprague was that which followed the remains of Mrs. Andrew Bennighoff to the Lake View cemetery last Sunday afternoon.  Every available  vehicle in the city was made to do duty and then hundred of pedestrians were left behind.  A very touching but simple funeral ceremony was held in the parlors of the Commercial Hotel at 1;30 p. m. by Rev. Dr. Allen of the Christian church....a brief prayer was uttered by the Rev. Dr. Allen when all that was mortal of a beloved wife and mother was consigned to the grave.  Obituary: Died Friday night, Sept. 25, 1891 at the Commercial hotel, Sprague, Washington, Mrs. Caroline Bennighoff, wife of Andrew Bennighoff.  The deceased was born in Germany, July 29, 1861, and when three years of age come with her parents to the United States.  In 1881 she was married to Andrew Bennighoff and died leaving to mourn her loss, besides her husband, four children, all daughters, the eldest nine years of age and the youngest an infant only two months old.  She died of typhoid fever was sick only a few days., and her sudden and unexpected death was a most crushing affliction to her husband and children.  The writer was called to conduct the funeral services which were held Sunday afternoon in the parlors of the Commercial Hotel.  The attendance was immensely large filling the rooms at the hotel and  the street outside, showing the high esteem in which the deceased was held by her neighbors and many friends in Sprague...The deceased was a member of the Lutheran church and had lived a worthy and faithful Christian life.  She was a devoted wife, and affectionate mother, a kind and helpful neighbor, and a true woman in all the relations of life.  She has gone to wait on the other shore, the coming of the loved ones in the "Sweet by and by".(The Sprague Herald, Sep 30, 1891) Submitted by Barbara Curtis

Boehl, E.:  Lincoln Co Auditor records show that R R Jones, grantor, sold Lot 14 Block 1 of Lakeview Cemetery on March 26, 1930 to E.

Bruce, Mrs. Jennie:  Sprague Herald of 16 Jan 1890:  “Mrs. Jennie Bruce died suddenly on Sunday last. From the attending physician, Dr R. M. Houck, we learn that strangulation, super induced by a heavy attack of influenza, was the chief cause of her demise. Mrs. Bruce was buried from the Congregational church Tuesday afternoon.

Burrow: (see also Leigh) Sarah Ann Leigh, born Oct 8, 1850, in England, died in 1910, in Sprague. She married Charles Burrow in Bristol, England, Dec 24, 1874. They are both buried in the old part of Maccabee Cemetery (edit: Lakeview Cemetery). (more in Sprague Lamont Edwall book)


Burrow: Charles: Charles Burrow was born in England and died Oct 18, 1924, at this residence at Fred Brown's, north of Sprague.  The cause of death was shown as diabetes mellitus.  He was the son of James Burrow and Martha Harvey, both born in England.  Funeral services were conducted at the Sprague ME Church with burial in Lakeview Cemetery. ( Sprague Funeral Ledger of 1914-1927)


Burrow, Sarah Ann Leigh in Sprague Advocate of Mar 10, 1916 “Mrs. Charles Burrow departed this life on Sunday last aged 65 years, 4 months and 26 days. She has been a sufferer for some time with diabetis and Bright’s disease. Her condition became serious about a month ago and has been such that the call has been expected any time. A period of improvement preceded her death as we reported last week. The funeral was held on Wednesday from the Congregational church, Rev Jonathan Edwards of Spokane officiating. The funeral was largely attended showing that she was held in high esteem by her many friends and neighbors. Burial was made in Lakeview Cemetery. Sarah Ann Leigh was born in Wedmore, Stoughton Somersetshire, England, on Oct 8, 1850. On Dec 24, 1874 she was united in marriage to Chas Burrow in Bristol, England. The couple came to America in 1879 and located in Iowa where they resided until 1886 when they came to Washington and located in Lincoln County. They have resided here continuously ever since, almost 30 years. Twelve children were born to them, two of which are dead. The living are:  Mrs. Leslie Brown, Squire, Mrs. Nels Truedson, William, Mrs. Fred Brown, James, Mrs. Ame Dechenne, Mrs. Walter Jones, George and Nancy, all of Sprague, except James who lives in Spokane. Mrs. Burrow was a woman of splendid qualities as scores of people in the community whom she has aided can testify. She was a faithful helpmeet and a patient loving mother finding her greatest comfort in ministering to the wants of others. She was confirmed in the English Church.”  Sprague Funeral Ledger of 1914-1927 confirms much of this obituary. It gives the cause of death as diabetic coma. Her parents were William Leigh and Maryanne Willish (?), both born in England. The only discrepancy was the cemetery had erroneously been identified as Maccabee. “The will of Sarah A Burrow was filed at Davenport last week. Her share of the estate said to be worth $17,000 in real estate and $9,000 in personal property is willed to her husband during life after which it goes to the 10 children in equal parts. A portion is also left to two grandchildren. Mr. Burrow was named as executor of the will.” (5-05-1916 of Sprague Advocate)


Burrow:  Sprague Herald of June 10, 1891: “Little Christina Burrow, the eight year old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. W. J. Burrow of this city, died on Wednesday, the 27th, from diphtheria. Her remains were interred upon the home place Thursday.”


Butler, Mrs. Catherine: (see Sprague Catholic file, moved from Sprague Catholic to Cheney) “Mrs. Catherine Butler, a pioneer resident of the Edwall region, passed away late Tuesday evening, March 24, at the home of her daughter, Mary Logan. The funeral services were held Thursday morning at the Catholic Church in Edwall, Father Blake of Cheney officiating. Interment was in the cemetery at Sprague, beside her husband. Catherine Butler was born at Nespelem, WA, the date of her birth being unknown but it is supposed that she was about a hundred years old at the time of her death. She went with her parents to Mariposa, in California territory where she grew to young womanhood and married James Butler. Fifty years ago they moved with their family by wagon train to the Edwall community. In the early days, they endured many hardships and Mrs. Butler often related many interesting tales of their early pioneer life. After the death of her husband Mrs. Butler stayed with her daughter Mrs. Mary Logan, where she was in good health until the latter part of last December, when she began to weaken. She had seven children and is survived by four. They are Mrs. Ellen Moomaw, of Manse, WA; John Butler of Inchelium, WA; and Joe Butler and Mary Logan of Edwall. There are also 15 of her grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.” (Dav Times-Tribune-April 2, 1931)


Butler, John H.: “Died.—At his residence in Sprague the 25th of May 1889, of blood poison, resulting from amputation of leg and inward hurts occasioned by his fall on the 2nd of this month, John H Butler, aged 32 years.  Mr. Butler was born in Davis County, Missouri, in 1857, and with his now surviving brother, came to Washington Territory in 1884 and has resided at his late residence till his death. He was a member of the ME Church and was much interested in the erection of the new church. He was an honest, industrious young man and one that was highly respected by all, especially those who knew him best. In his long and sore affliction he was patient and gave assurance of his trust in God and died in full hope of everlasting life. He leaves three sisters also to mourn his death. His funeral was among the largest ever in Sprague; the services were held by his pastor and his remains laid away to rest to await the union of friends that now mourn where sorrow will be no more. Rev W T Koontz, Pastor, M E Church.” (Sprague Herald of 30 May 1889) “Memorial services to the memory of Mr. John Butler, deceased, will be held in the new Methodist church on next Sunday at 11 a.m.  Everybody invited.” (20 June 1889-Sprague Herald)


Butler, John:  (not buried here) “John Butler, formerly night yard master in Sprague, was killed by a train in Leadville, Colorado, July 3rd. He was buried on the 7th inst.”  (LCT of 7-27-1894)


Cady, infants:  Harrington Citizen of 8-10-1906 “Mr. & Mrs. Myron Cady suffered the loss of their 3 months old twin babies this week. One died Monday and was buried Tuesday in Lakeview Cemetery. The other one died Thursday morning and interment will  be in the same cemetery. The cause of death was from dysentery. The bereaved parents will have the sympathy of a host of friends in the loss of their loved ones.”-Sprague Independent.

Chandler, Wm E.  ( Sprague Herald of 26 Dec 1889)  “Another Veteran Has Disappeared From Amongst us to Muster in the Mysterious World Beyond. Comrade William E Chandler suddenly passed away Saturday last at his residence on Second near E Street, in the city. Mr. Chandler had been ailing for a number of years from that dreadful disease, consumption, and to his wife and other intimate friends his passing away was not a surprise; but to those who did not intimately know him he appeared a healthy old man. Mrs. Chandler is left alone in the world, having no children to assist her in carrying her burden of grief. The deceased served in the 211th regiment of Pennsylvania volunteer infantry in the war of the rebellion, and was an honored soldier. He was born in Warren County, PA, Sept 20th, 1827, and was raised in the same neighborhood with Mrs. Chandler. He moved to Michigan after the close of the war, and came to Washington in 1877, and located on Crab Creek, in this county, where his home has since been until a short time since when they moved to this city. Philo Buckman Post GAR of which he was a member took charge of the last obloquies of the deceased, and were followed to the cemetery by many citizens. Rev Mr. Koontz officiated, and delivered a most suitable sermon upon the occasion.”
