Biographical Sketch of David Sperry
In 1788 David Sperry came from Wallingford, Vt., where he had resided during the war, and settled on the farm now owned and occupied by William Delong. He came originally from New Haven, Conn and was a man of unusual ability. It was his custom, it is said, to wake his sons in the morning with the following roll-call:
“Daniel and Levi,
David and Lyman,
Heman and Dimon,
Ebenezer Peck and Harvey, turn out.”
