The New England Historical and Genealogical Society (NEHGR) – has started a new project called Boston Tea Party Participants. I started to look at the entries for known surnames that I was sure would have been in North America at that time. A result of my inquiry for the Sprague surname (see Sprague Project) was Samuel Sprague (1753-1844). I dropped everything and decided to see if he might be in my project database. He was not there. Luckily, I have a number of volumes on the Sprague family and have been able to connect him to my Tristram Sprague ancestor (my 11th Great-Grandfather, Samuel’s 4th Great-Grandfather).
My third cousin, 7 times removed, helped dump the tea in Boston Harbor!
Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
