Ihave reason to believe that Gardiner Briggs [s/o Caleb Briggs & Elizabeth Tarbox was born Mar 26, 1741, in E. Greenwich, Kent, Rhode Island and of Sterling, Ct.] is the father of my ancestor, Daniel, who married Nancy Almy in Sterling in 1806. In the 1800 E. Greenwich census, Gardiner has 2 sons in his household( 1 in the age group of 10-15[William?] and 1 in the age group of 16-25[Daniel?]). In the 1810 Sterling census Gardiner has 1 son in the 16-25 age group[William?]. The known children of Gardiner Briggs & Waite Vaughn are Waite, Caleb, Abel & Job. All settled in Ontario, now known as Yates county, NY.In the 1790 E. Greenwich census, Gardiner has 8 sons. From what I've found, Eunice who married William Briggs is the d/o of Jesse Vaughn who is the brother of Waite who married Gardiner.
