Dee-I have information on the children of James Brigham as my husband is descended from one of James' sons, George French Brigham. I tried to print out your entire message, but my computer will only print out the first page on John, and won't print the rest. Is it possible for you to e-mail it to me as an attachment? Thanks.
Fidelio W. Brigham died at (Tibadorf ??--can't read writing) LA on January 1, 1866 at age 53. His first wife, Adaline E. Brigham died at Nashville, TN March 1, 1855, aged 40. His second wife, Amelia, V. Webb Brigham died at Cincinnati, OH on Sept. 6, 1859, aged 29.
Risley H. Brigham, son of Fidelio, died at Cheyenne Western Territory, January 20, 1870- was in Civil War, and later in the army.
Fidelio, Wesley, and Risley went to San Francisco in 1851 in hope of making a lot of money to pay off family debts. My husband's cousins have transcribed these fascinating letters. The letters were sent to George and to his parents, and were kept by George, later put in scrapbooks, and handed down in the family.
