Thank you very much, Lynne, for this information. It does indeed eliminate this Atherton Wales! He was pretty low on the list of possibilities but this clinches it. I have located five AWs who were born in the time frame of 1760 - 1780 and have now eliminated four of them. This leaves the one who was born in Hanover, MA in 1771, the son of Atherton Wales and Ruth Turner. He has more or less become my ancestor by default. There is of course the possibility of another, undiscovered, AW so I have in no way stated positivly that he is my ancestor!
I am quite sure that the parents of Caroline are Nathaniel and Hannah (Ford) Sprague. I have conferred with Dick Webber, the author of the Sprague Family web site, and we agree that this is almost surely the case.
Thanks again, Lynne, for the information. May I ask (for my notes) where it came from?
