      Subject: [BroadBayMEGen] Nathan Sprague genealogy

       Hi.  I'm looking for information on Nathan Sprague, who moved from
       Marshfield MA to Broad Bay/Waldoboro in 1774.  He came with family
       members and several friends -- Charles Sampson, Spooner Sprague, James
       Sprague, Zebedee Simmons, and Stephen Simmons among them.  
      He ran a tavern in Warren by 1884.
      Was his wife, Mary Miller, his second wife or first wife?  Who was his
       mother?  Was wife Mary Miller from Germany or from Marshfield?
      His daughter Mary Sprague b. 1772 (before moving to ME, it seems)
       married William Groton. 
      Their child Joseph, married Mary Ludwig (I think it was Mary.)
      Ring any bells?

      Dear nameless,
      Can't help much with the Nathan Sprague you mentioned above but have the following grave records on a few Waldoboro Groton family members....
      From the German Cemetery in Waldoboro, Maine;

      #614. George O. Genthner 1842-1919

      (wife) Eudora A. (Kaler) (Genthner) 1852-1895

      William Sprague 1787-1845

      (wife) Mary C. (Creamer) (Sprague) 1789-1871

      Angeline F. Kaler 1830-1897

      Could this William Sprague, (above), have been brother to your Nathaniel?
