Dear Sue:My husband is descended from Joel Brigham-John-James-George-Fanny Brigham Arnold-Douglass Arnold-Julia Arnold Olsen-Robert Olsen. We have a poor newspaper copy of the story that James' wife, Fanny Risley Brigham told, not to her dying son, but to her ill son, George French Brigham. He wrote it up and sent it to the Fredonia newspaper. George French Brigham and his wife Aurilla Douglass left Fredonia, and first settled in Chicago, and later in the small village of Sharon, Wisconsin, where they lived out their lives. Aurilla died in 1904 and George in 1914. After his retirement as stationmaster of the r.r. station, he wrote articles and letters to both the Sharon and Fredonia newspapers. I believe that he may have subscribed to the Fredonia newspaper all of his life.
