Ancestors & Descendants of John Sprague, Sr. of Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  FRANCIS1 SPRAGUE

 

Notes for FRANCIS SPRAGUE:

Consider this work under construction. There is much more information to add to this version of the Sprague Family Who lived at Grand Manan the first half of the 19th century. I will work at this and share all information that I have on the family, BUT this will take time to accomplish.

 

Most of the early Sprague Genealogy is in print.  I have also included information provided to me by Leonard Tibbets in the 1980s, who is in the process of compiling a book with Darryl Lamson, named  " Early Families of Narraguagus of Washington Co., Maine. The book which is scheduled to be published in 2002 should include the Sprague and Morse Families that settled in three of the six townships covered by the book, namely Cherryfield, Milbridge and Steuben in 1845. I have also researched the New Brunswick  (King and Charlotte County) areas and I have included Primary source information in nature.

 

If you find errors or omissions to this compilation please Emile me and let me know:   stevensj@gwi.net

5.                iv. JOHN SPRAGUE, b. Abt. 1755, Cherryfield, Washington Co., ME; d. March 21, 1846, Grand Manan Island, Charlotte Co., NB.

 

 

Generation No. 5

 

5.  JOHN5 SPRAGUE (TERAH4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2, FRANCIS1) was born Abt. 1755 in Cherryfield, Washington Co., ME1, and died March 21, 1846 in Grand Manan Island, Charlotte Co., NB1.  He married (1) RUTH ? Abt. 1779 in Cherryfield, Washington Co. ME.  She was born Abt. 1760, and died Abt. 1799.  He married (2) SARAH LABAREE Bet. 1814 - 1821 in Gand Manan Island.  She was born September 25, 1779 in Charlestown, Sullivan Co., New Hampshire1, and died October 03, 1869 in Grand Manan1.

 

Notes for RUTH ?:

Some say Ruth was the first wife of John Sprague. I offer that without proof.

 

Notes for SARAH LABAREE:

Sarah (sometimes Sally which is a nickname for Sarah) was born in New Hampshire, the daughter Peter Jr., & Sarah (Kennedy?) Labaree. Peter, Jr. died in 1788 in Claremont, Sullivan Co., NH and his widow, Sarah, remarried to Abner Meigs at Claremont in 1790. This is a perfect fit according to several LDS/FHC Records and two Vital Records of New Hampshire.The problem with this is  "The History of Charlestown, NH", a book written by the Rev. Henry H. Sanderson in 1876, indicates that Peter Labaree didn't  die in 1788. It states that Peter, Jr. married Sarah Longfellow in 1788 and that Peter, Jr. was living in Ballstown, Lincoln Co., Maine.

 

This remains a mystery but it is likely that another Labaree Family, who were of the Brunswick / Topsham Area at the onset of the American Revolution was the ancestor of this additional Peter,who was probably related to the New Hampshire Larabee.

 

About the year 1798, Abner Meigs left NH and after several stops in VT & ME settled at Grand Manan by 1804. Only 2 of his children (Church & Rebecca) and wife accompanied him.  In 1814 Abner Meigs sold a  portion of his Lot to Sally Labaree (Who was his step-daughter) but the transfer of property was not to occur until after the death of Abner and his wife, Sarah. In 1838, Sarah gave Church Meigs a quitclaim deed for the this same land( see Charlotte Co. Deed U-314)  At this time Sarah was a Sprague. See Charlotte Co. Deed W-157 written in 1843 where John Sprague and his wife Sarah Sprague sold a lot of land to John Sprague, Jr. See Deed W-158 written in 1844 where John Sprague Jr. and his wife Mary  sell this land to Lorenzo Drake. John Sprague, Sr. is listed in the 1821 Census of Grand Manan with a wife Sarah. So Sarah Labaree married John Sprague between the years 1814-1821.

 

It is family tradition that John Sprague, Sr. married twice. His first wife is unknown but some think she was named Ruth. His second wife was supposedly Sarah Delesdernier, if so, and I don't think so, then Sarah Labaree was the widow of an unidentified Delesdernier whose marriage took place after 1814 but before 1821. In an interview between Benjamin Noyes that took place in 1930 with Mabel (Whelphy) Van Dine a daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Small who was born in 1844, Van Dine stated in part  "...John Sprague married twice, second time to De-Leston-ere, French woman but no children by her."

 

There is no primary source to establish this as a fact. However in this time frame vital statistics are not abundant. There was a connection to the Delesdernier Family. Samuel Small, who married John Sprague's daughter, had a brother Nehemiah Small who married Mary Ann Delesdernier.The Delesdernier family Genealogist, John Hatt from Fredericton, wrote  in a letter to me dated July 26, 2000, "...For over 30 years I have been researching the Delesdernier Family and at no time have I found a Sally or Sarah Delesdernier marriage to John Sprague." John Hatt also produced a letter written by Lewis Frederick Delesdernier, jr, to his Uncle Moses Delesdernier in 1815. Lewis F. Jr., mentioned each of his sisters, who were alive but failed to mention a Sally or a Sarah Delesdernier."  John Hatt stated further, "...I have concluded that Sarah or Sally's surname was Labaree."

Generation No. 6

 

6.  LOVE6 SPRAGUE (JOHN5, TERAH4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2, FRANCIS1) was born Abt. 1780 in Kings Co., NB, and died in probably Grand Manan.  She married GILBERT L. GRAY Abt. 1797 in Kings Co., NB, son of WILLIAM GRAY and UNKNOWN SHERWOOD.  He was born Abt. 1778 in Westchester County, NY, and died Aft. 1832 in probably Grand Manan.

 

Notes for GILBERT L. GRAY:

In 1795 (#715) and again in 1796 (#720) Gilbert petitioned for land.  I assume he did not received either of the lots he applied for, i.e., there was no Crown Land Grant found.

Gilbert Gray - 1813  Memorial  #153 (Ref. PANB Film # F-4175)

 

Your Memorialist is 35 years old, has a family and has never received any lands from the Government, Gilbert asks for a 200 acre grant or Lot # 35 on the east side of the Saint John River in the Parish of Wakefield. Gilbert is an inhabitant of Wakefield. Subscribers Statement added: No previous land to my Knowledge. <NOTE: JLS> Gilbert gave his age as 35 in 1813, If so, he was born about 1778.

 

Gilbert Gray - 1814 Memorial #173 (Ref. PANB Microfilm # F-4176)

 

August  5, 1814 : Your Memorialist mistakenly applied for Lot# 35. Lot #34 is what I am applying for as I have made improvements worth 25 pounds on Lot #34.  Lot #35 has a bad landing.  Your Memorialist has a large Family that includes a wife and 7 children, which could work in both lots. The two lots will make me a large Farm for my large family. The lots are on the east side of the St. John River in the Town of Wakefield. Subscribing Witness certified the above Gilbert Gray has a house and 12 acres of cleared land under good cultivation on the above Lot#34 with other improvements and no allotment has been made for lot #34.

 

According to the PANB Crown Land Grant Database Gilbert Gray  received a 400 acre grant on12/14/1815.  The Land was  in Wakefield, York Co., NB. See Grant book Volume1, page 79, Grant #815.

Records of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada Land Transfer

 

(Charlotte Co.Deed I:196)  Deed of Land from Weller Chapman, of the Island, Parish Of Grand Manan. In the county of Charlotte, The Province of New Brunswick Canada to Gilbert Gray of the same Parish dated 7 of October 1824,  for 10 pounds. Part of Lot # 21 in the first division of lots on the said Island of Grand Manan granted by the Crown to Jane Guptill.  Bounded by the see at Long Island. Proved by a subscribing Witness on December 27, 1824. Registered on July 3, 1826.(Reference PANB Film #F-5182.)

 

(Charlotte Co DeedM: 220) Deed of Land from Gilbert L. Gray of the Island, Parish of Grand Manan, Charlotte Co., Province of New Brunswick Canada in consideration of 30 # sell to John Macintosh of the aforesaid, Island, Parish, County and Province. Land being part of Lot # 21 of the first division of Lots. Granted by the crown  to Jane Guptail. Mentions Long Island Bay in description of the one-acre plot. Deed signed by Gilbert L. Gray in 1832. Witnessed by James White and John Sprague at Grand Manan on November 9, 1832 Received and registered on December 19, 1832. (Reference PANB Film # F-5184.)

 

Note: It is interesting to note that the Gilbert Grays of Springfield, Kings Co and Grand Manan, Charlotte Co. had the middle initial L.  This solidifies my belief they were the same person. However, I been burned to many times to suggest anything other than they were quite probably the same person.

 

A 50+page paper from Kevin Gray of Simsbury, CT on the Descendants of William Gray.  lists Gilbert Gray as the 6th child of William Gray, born in 1772.  The compiler of the paper, Jean Bluhm of Chehalls, WA had this to say about Gilbert:   "He (Gilbert) married Love Sprague...William and John Sprague, Jr.(sic - should read Sr.) and Mrs Love Sprague were associates of William Hutchinson and Isaiah McCarthey who drew a block grant on Salmon River in Upper Settlement 1785.  Love is an aged widowed mother of William & John Sprague, Sr.. A John Sprague was living at Darling Island 1783 with wife and family. He left and joined Capt. Hutchinson, applying for a grant farther N (orth) in Kings's Co....I feel Love Sprague must be related to the woman by the same name, may be a grand daughter...."  The paper then lists 4 children:  Ebben,  George, Darius and Ruth Gray.  The latter married Nelson Small....." These are all too familiar names for Grand Manan researchers.

 

There is no doubt in my mind that Jean Bluhm  was right. The only logical reason that Gilbert Gray would come to Grand Manan to live is so his wife, Love Sprague, could live near her parents.  We have therefore determined another child for John Sprague, Sr.

 

There were no Gray Families enumerated for the 1821 Census of Grand Manan, yet there were marriages for several male & female Grays. In most situations this would mean a person died before the census, but in this case we find a grantee deed for Gilbert dated October 7, 1824. See Records of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada Land Transfer 1: 196  where Gilbert purchased land from Weller Chapman, of the Island, Parish Of Grand Manan. In the county of Charlotte, The Province of New Brunswick Canada. Gilbert Gray, who was of the same place purchased his Grand Manan lot of land for  for 10 pounds. It was part of Lot # 21 in the first division of lots on the said Island of Grand Manan granted by the Crown to Jane Guptill. Bounded by the sea at Long Island. Proved by a subscribing Witness on December 27, 1824. Registered on July 3, 1826. (Reference PANB Film #F-5182.)

 

Recall that William Gray died in 1824. That is the exact same year that Gilbert purchased his land on Grand Manan. Gilbert used 10 of his 12 pounds he received from his father's estate.

 

Gilbert sold this land in 1832. See deed M:220, Deed of Land from Gilbert L. Gray of the Island, Parish of Grand Manan, Charlotte Co., Province of New Brunswick Canada in consideration of 30 # sell to John Macintosh of the aforesaid, Island, Parish, County and Province. Land being part of Lot # 21 of the first division of Lots. Granted by the crown to Jane Guptail. Mentions Long Island Bay in description of the one?acre plot. Deed signed by Gilbert L. Gray in 1832. Witnessed by James White and John Sprague at Grand Manan on November 9, 1832 Received and registered on December 19, 1832. (Reference PANB Film # F-5184.)

 

Gilbert's name is on the 1831 tax assessment list for Grand Manan.  This is the only other time I find Gilbert's name on a Grand Manan Island document.

 

 No Gray was Granted Land on Grand Manan. Gilbert did not receive land from his father through his will.  Instead he received 12 pounds & 10 shillings.

 

The fact that Gilbert Gray was mentioned as a son in the will of William Gray of Springfield, the fact Gilbert was of Springfield in 1817, The fact that Gilbert's wife was named Love, The fact that John Sprague witnessed a deed for Gilbert Gray at Grand Manan. The fact that both the Grand Manan and Springfield Gilbert Grays had the middle initial L.  all solidify  the contention  that the Grand Manan & Springfield Gilbert L. Grays were one in the same and that Love Gray was a daughter of John Sprague.

 

What we haven't established is the date that Gilbert Gray came to Grand Manan to live. Since Asa Morse married Gilbert's daughter in December of 1818 and Gilbert sold his land at Wakefield in 1817. The 1817-1818 time frame is a good bet.
