Place: Christ Church Burial Ground, Newcastle

Details: A stone which will recall many amusing experiences to the minds of old citizens is that erected - To the memory of Joseph Spragg, who was born Nov. 26 1809 in the Parish of St. George, Hanover Square, London, and departed this life Oct. 18 1857. Beneath the inscription if the following quaint verse - Life is uncertain, Death is sure, Sin is the wound, Christ is the cure. He was one of the early business men of the place and for years kept a store on the site occupied by the Yacht Club Hotel, which was pulled down some years ago and the Westminster Hotel erected in its place. The store was a general one in every sense of the word, where, so to speark, the customer, could purchase anything from a needle to an anchor. One of Spraggs characteristics was his independent spirit. It was a common thing for him to tell customers who went to make purchases at meal hours that he was having his breakfast or dinner as the case may be and they must come back later one, when he would attend to them. There were only two stores in those days and if the rival establishement did not possess the required article the customer was entirely at the mercy of the eccentric merchant. His establishment embraced tailoring and hairdressing, and many a gathering took place in the old saloon, where the townsmen of the day discussed current politics and local topics of interest
