When Elizabeth Sprague was born on July 21, 1670, in Weymouth, Suffolk, Massachusetts Bay, her father, Jonathan, was 24, and her mother, Elizabeth, was 25.
NOTE: Her birth to Jonathan and Elizabeth Sprague (spelt Sprauge) appears in the Weymouth birth records, p. 280 in the "tan book". But the mother to whom she is connected is not Elizabeth but Mehitable. Perhaps Elizabeth was Jonathan's first wife, and died at or soon after the birth of this daughter?? Research needed.
Elizaberth Sprague married Benjamin Wilson (Willson) before 1694, perhaps in Woburn, Massachusetts, although not recorded there. They removed to Rehoboth by 1698. They had 12 children in 20 years. She died on July 10, 1731, in Rehoboth at the age of 60.
