The grave inscriptions were in the book-

The marriage of Carloine Sprague is found in the-
Descendants of William Woodward of Bath, Maine with some account of His Ancestry- compiled by Frank E. Woodward, Malden, Mass.-
because her sister Hannah m. William Woodward.
This is found in the Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder(1893)- Vol VII, Book of Eastern Claims- page 30.
It is as follows-
Nathaniel Sprague of Duxbury, Mass. was born in 1748: mar. in Pembroke, Mass.,July 19,1770 Hannah Ford, and had seven children, all born in Duxbury. Nathaniel moved with his family to Bath in the year 1784, and was engaged in building ships. He died Sept.12,1802. Hannah, his widow, died Aug. 8,1916, aged 75 years. Children:
1. Caroline,b.Feb 2,1771;m. Atherton Wales
2. Sarah, b.Dec.5,1772; m.1st William Little; m.2nd Oct8,1807 Fobes Turner.
3. Peleg, b.Sept 23,1774:m. Mary Blasland
4. Nathaniel, b. May 14,1777;m.Nov25,1800 Susanna Kimball
5. William, b.Mch 27,1779;d.Jan 11, 1781
6. Hannah,b.Oct 5,1781;m.Sept3,1800,William Woodward
7. Mercy, b Feb 29,1784;m.Nov 18,1807, David Foote

Now- if you notice one of the dates concerning Nathaniel Sr and Hannah HAS to be a misprint. If Hannah died in 1916 at age 75 then she wasn't born until 1841 and is 93 years younger than her husband!
