Phebe Sproat Quick

Watch Where You Step

Sproat Married Quick

While walking around the Union Cemetery in Orange County, New York I had to watch where I was stepping. You heard about another family in previous post, “Canfield Family of Orange County, New York“.The tombstone of Phebe Sproat caught me off guard, it was being swallowed by the ground. I only pulled a few census records to share a little peak into the life of Phebe. The information I do have, collected from the tombstone, Sproat appears to be her maiden name. She married a Peter Quick and died in 1862 at the age of 72, which puts her birth around 1790.

Review

*On the 1850 census you notice that there isn’t a child named Alfred N Quick.  However in looking at Alfred’s age of 13 on the 1860 census, there is a Nelson Quick on the 1850 at the age of 4, so I believe they are one in the same. Another difference between the two are the addition of Adeline Quick.
