Dear Lisa:Apologize for the delay; have more things to find that you may appreciate.Contact me directly at my email@example.com if you have further questions.I have more stuff but haven't got it filed yet.Please reference me if you print this; the Spurgeons got ahold of some of my information and printed it as theirs when I was the one that did all the legwork.Also, can you tell me how you found out Eunice Briggs maiden name was King so I can reference that.
Josiah Briggs - buried North Fairfield (Herrick) Cemetery.Original stone has been replaced by the Vermont Cemetery Project, but it is etched, not carved so it will be unlegible soon.I believe he was a revolutionary war veteran (he really only served a few days but I have found him in the national archives, assuming he was the same Josiah Briggs).The stone says he died 2 Mar 1845 aged 85.Eunice is buried next to him; her stone is still the original.She died 16 Jan 1836 aged 79 yrs wife of Josiah according to the stone.Next to them is Elisha Brigs (different spelling?)died 22 Apr, 1845 aged 62 yrs.No explanation of relationship and I don't think he is listed in any of the Briggs legal work. There is a son Cyrus Briggs who married Polly Martin 30 June (?) 1819.I think there was another child or two but I can't find all my references. Amyntus' sister Anna married Joseph G Webster who died 3 Nov 1831 leaving her to raise 6 minor children.She died 30 Nov 1870 at 73 yrs 4 mos.They are both buried in Egypt Cemetery in East Fairfield.Her oldest son and his children and grandchildren are also buried there. I descend from Annas youngest son. In 1844 Amyntus was living in Rome New York when he sold some property in Fairfield.I assume not much later he moved to Wisconsin. Hope this is helpful; please let me know about that King information; hadn't seen that except in the Spurgeon stuff.
Sincerely -- your very distant cousin -- Elaine H Van Camp
