Biography: Samuel and Abigail moved to Oxford, Massachusetts. where their last three children were born. Samuel was at the Battle of Quebec in 1759. In 1761 records of Leicester show that Samuel applied with others for "exemption from the tax for the ministers of the town," because of the persuasion called "ana-Baptists." His son Samuel married Mehitable Green, whose father was a very prominent man of the family of Rhode Island Greens.

Ref.: Records by Cora Call Whitley on Massachusetts trip and Media Research by Helen Jones Soper. Media Research listed Calls who served the American cause in War of Independence as follows: David, Moses, Silas, Stephen, Philip and Daniel Call of New Hampshire; Aaron, Amos, Benjamin, Cato, Jabez, James, John, John Jr., Jonathan, Samuel, William, Obadiah and Josiah Call of Massachusetts. There is a note in the original book "See Sprague History" next to Abigail Sprague's name. I believe this refers to "The Spragues of Malden Massachusetts", a book I have recently obtained a copy of.
