The BRIGGS Family - Burlington

Noah Briggs, of Bristol Co., Mass., moved to Voluntown, Conn., 
about 1745. He married Elizabeth TRUMBULL, of Taunton, Mass., 
where he resided for several years. Eleven children were born to them, 
namely, Elkanah, Zephaniah, Perez, William, Isaac, John, James, Betsey, 
Freelove, Sarah, and Susan.
Zephaniah married and lived in Sherman, Conn., and died in 1838 or 
1839, aged one hundred and two years. Perez married Elizabeth SMITH, 
and lived in Burlington, Otsego Co., N. Y. He settled in 1789, in 
Burlington. William married a GALLUP, and resided in Sterling, Conn., 
and died at the age of ninety-three. Isaac was not married, and died a 
soldier in Washington's army. John married a HALL, and moved to 
Skaneateles, N. Y., and died in 1838, aged eighty-eight, leaving several 
children. John was a Revolutionary soldier. William and James were 
soldiers also. James married Phebe BOWEN, of Rhode Island, and had 
twelve children.
This is all we have at our command of this pioneer family of 
Otsego County.
