Hello. I'd just like to add to this "thread" that I know of a James SPRAGUE who was living in or near St. Stephen, NB, in the 1790's. (Then called "Schoodic")
He was one of five men who were killed in a mailboat accident in the St. Croix River in February 1799. (Then called Schoodic River)
I know there are SPRAGUE researchers. And, I have heard from one or two TROTT researchers. But, I have not found any HODGE researchers yet. John HODGE was one of the men.
The fifth man was my ancestor, Calvin KIDDER, then of Schoodic. His first child had been born less than two weeks before his death. His widow, Mrs. Mary (GREENLAW) KIDDER, remarried a year? later to Ambrose BATES.
