and he continued at that occupation until his death, aged eighty-nine years.
His wife, Sarah Rowena Pierce, also attained advanced years, being eighty-
three at the time of her demise. Mr. and Mrs. Pierce were the parents of
five 
children, four sons and one daughter. 
Mrs. Orlando A. Jasperson's maternal grandfather was David C. Sproat, 
who was born in Vermont, and who was also a pioneer of Racine county, 
having settled in Waterford township at an early date. Prior to coming 
West, he had been a papermaker, but on locating in Wisconsin he took up the
occupation of farming, which he followed for the rest of his active life.
He 
was in his sixtieth year at the time of his death, while his widow, Sarah
(Kittredge) Sproat, lived to be about sixty-five years old. They had a fam-
ily of nine children, all of whom grew to maturity. Mr. Sproat was frater-
nally connected with the Masons, and very influential therein. 
Mr. Orlando A. Jasperson is justly considered one of North Cape's rep- 
resentative young men. He has always been interested in anything that prom-
ised for the advancement of his town, and is known as a fair dealing business
man of strict integrity. He and his wife are well known and very popular
in 
North Cape.
