Your Sprague clan goes back to Plymouth,MA in the 1600's.You can trace back to Francis Sprague.My family is also from Washington Co. Maine but ours go back to William Sprague of Hingham,MA also in the 1600's.These two lines are the major ones in the US and both go back to England.There are however Sprague lines that came through Canada,others that changed their name from Spragg too.Good luck! John

I would like to know if there are cemeteries with headstones where the Spragues are buried in Calais/Machias Maine - if there are any.

Thanks

Sorry it took me so long to respond to your inquiry, tax time. Have you checked the Sprague database? It is www.sprague-database.org It is a very comprehensive website. I checked my program for cemetaries in Maine and I have a listing for one in Vermont with Some Sprague names, but nothing in Maine. I do have notations for some that were buried in Appleton, Maine. I checked the Sprague websit and they have a listing for a few buried in Wahington county in the Wesley? cemetary.

Joseph Thornton Sprague was my g-g-g-grandfather; his daughter Sarah married John Mitchell, and their daughter Julia married Theophilus Ruel Brown. Their son Ruel Porter Brown was my grandfather.

If you still need info, please contact me by email (jbrown01@maine.rr.com)and I would be pleased to share what I have. Ironically, I found your inquiry while seeking the location of the cemetery in Vanceboro ME where Capt. Eli and Jane Livermore Sprague are reportedly buried.

I also have been researching sprague in washington county maine and have a lot of information on the family going back to Abiel Sr. Abiel, Jr. by the way always went by Abiel - 2 and that is how he signed his name. I have hit a brick wall on the parentage of Abiel Sr. who was supposedly born in 1710 in Rochester MA. I have been told that the Alden Society disputes Dr. Sprague's assertion that Abiel was the son of Ruth Alden and Samuel Sprague. However, I have gone through all the Sprague families who were here at that time including the 3 brothers who came over later. No one mentions Abiel. I will be happy to share what I have for information. Joyce

My Sprague family comes down from Abiel Sprague Sr to James who I believe is a brother to Abiel JR. From there to James JR, then James Noble Sprague, to Melissa Sprague who married Daniel Proctor, to James Everett Proctor my grandfather on my mother's side.
