-------------------------------------------



Sprott, James, was born in Morean in 1827, and educated in the common schools, and when twenty-five years of age left home to work for himself. Twelve years ago he purchased the farm he now occupies, which contains 103 acres of fine soil, situated one-half mile east of Wiltonville, in what is without doubt one of the most sightly and picturesque places in Saratoga county. A grand sight is witnessed as you look to the southeast, where the eye catches a view of over fifty miles overlooking the hills of Washington county and extending in an unbroken and uninterrupted view to the Green Mountains. In summer many people are lured to this beautiful spot on account of the pure mountain air and fine scenery. In 1860 Mr. Sprott married Caroline King, and they had one daughter, Anna, wife of Claudius Tillotson. In 1879 he married Adelaide Wood, and they have one. son, Walter J., a student in the Saratoga High School. Mr. Sprott's farm is an ideal place and will soon be on the market. To those having an eye to the beautiful in nature no spot can be selected in which to pass the summer months or for a permanent home which excels this sightly locality.
