JACOBS, Sarah Sprague, author, born in Pawtuxet, Rhode Island, 17 March, 1813. She is the daughter of Bela Jacobs, a Baptist minister in Cambridge, Massachusetts, taught in Georgia, New York, Rhode Island, Nova Scotia, and afterward returned to Cambridge. She is the author of "Benedetta" and many other fugitive poems, some of which were reprinted in Rufus W. Griswold's "Female Poets of America"; also of a memoir of her father (1837); and of juvenile books, one of which, entitled "Nonantum and Natick," gives in a readable style a history of the Indian tribes of New England, and of John Eliot's missionary labors (Boston, 1853).
