      Hi!
       My grandfather James Bard Bill, is ID# I13834 on the Sprague web site. So murder victim Amasa Sprague is ID# I53047 ,. They are fourth cousins, four times removed. Amasa and his brother Governor and U.S. Senator William Sprague would be my fourth cousins, six times removed. Amasa's son Governor and U.S. Senator William Sprague would be my fifth cousin, five times removed. Lucille Ball, also a Sprague is ID# I13834,.
       Check out the Bill family on http://politicalgraveyard.com ,. It does need updating. However I am more closely related to Maj. Gen. Nathaniel Greene and the Perry Brothers. It needs to be remembered that Christopher Raymond Perry,the Perry Brothers Oliver Hazard and Matthew Calbriath, Nathaniel, and two of my direct ancestors were second cousins. Colonial Governor Benedict Arnold's brother Stephen is my direct line, and I have other notable Rhode Island tie-ins.
       The first town clerk of Hopkinton Simeon Perry, also an early town clerk of Richmond, I have two lines from and his sister Elizabeth wife of Elisha Babcock, I have three lines.
      Relatively yours,
      Scott

      >  Today an update of the Sprague database is being done. I would check tomorrow so new information will be added. I have Benn on today and did not have a problem. But an e-mail I received said it would not be fully available or something like that. Interesting the Governors been and murder victim Amasa Sprague are not that distantly related to me, I learned some time ago. Like third or fourth cousins, some times removed. It needs to be remembered that the second Governor Sprague of Rhode Island was nephew of the first Governor Sprague. The second Governor Sprague was the son of murder victim Amasa Sprague.
