Gravesite of the 2nd Governor Sprague

These are the front, rear and upper level of one of the Sprague plots in Swann Point Cemetery in Providence. In the Crypt are the remains of the Civil War Governor William Sprague B. 1830, 4th cousin 4x removed, his second wife, Inez, his parents, Amasa, 3rd cousin 5x removed and Fanny (Morgan) and his son, William. This tomb is so big that the front is right on the edge of one street and the back is on the edge of another street. The tree in the background is about 50 feet from the back street. The distance from the plaques to the front is about 15 feet. The diameter of the inner ring is 150 feet.
