  • Notes 
    • Shortly after Katherine's marriage to Thomas Sprigg, they moved to the new colony of Maryland, where her brother-in-law, William Stone, had gone as governor. Thomas Sprigg's land certificate in Maryland shows that he transported himself, his wife Katherine, Verlinda Roper, Nathaniel Sprigg, and several others. Verlinda Roper was Thomas's young stepdaugher; Nathanie l may have been an infant son--no other record of him has been found.
