    Notes:

    From the HISTORY OF ONTARIO COUNTY; compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich; edited by George S. Conover; 1893;
    Briggs, E. Elihu, Bristol, was born in Bristol September 25, 1835, reared on a farm and educated in East Bloomfield Academy. At the age of seventeen he engaged in teaching for five years in connection with farming, since which time he has followed farming exclusively. He owns sixty-three and one-half acres, which he purchased in 1867. Mr. Briggs has been thrice married. First, in 1854 to Emeline, daughter of Rev. Abner Reed. They had four children: William, Frank, Helen and Elnathan. Mrs. Briggs died in 1868, and in 1870 Mr. Briggs married Mary Ann Johnson, daughter of Phineas Johnson. By his second wife Mr. Briggs had two children: Ina E. and Lewis B. Mrs. Mary Ann Briggs died in 1884 and in 1886 Mr. Briggs married Lucrecia Kingsbury, daughter of Hampton Kingsbury, with whom he is still living. Mr. Briggs is a member of the People's party. He is now serving his third year as president of the Farmers' and Mechanics' Hop-growers" Association of Bristol. He is a member of Bristol Grange of which he has been secretary for fifteen years, and is a member of the Farmers' Alliance, and also secretary of that organization. He and family attend the Universalist Church at Bristol. E. Elihu Briggs is a son of William Briggs, a son of Elihu, a son of Zenas, who was a native of Massachusetts. William W. Briggs, father of the subject, was born in Bristol September 20, 1811. In 1861 he purchased fifty-four acres of land, and spent his last active days as a farmer. In 1879 he came to Bristol Hill and has since lived a retired life. November 13, 1834, he married Nancy Briggs of Massachusetts, born November 8, 1814, a daughter of Enoch and Abigail Briggs. William W. Briggs and wife had six children: E. Elihu, George W., Melvina A., Elnathan G., Ruth S. and Nannie L.

    Elihu was the eldest child of William Wallace and Nancy Briggs. Like his father, he became a farmer and remained in Bristol for most of his life.
    He married for the first time on November 8, 1855 in Bristol to Emeline Reed. The couple were living in East Bloomfield, New York in 1860 with the first of their five children. Emeline passed away in 1869 leaving Elihu with their children ages thirteen to two.
    The second marriage took place on June 13, 1870 to Mary Ann Johnson. Elihu had returned to Bristol by then and he and Mary Ann added three more children to the family. When Mary Ann died in 1884 two of her children were alive and aged ten and thirteen. Their daughter Ina married Wilbur L. Tiffany, son of George and Lucretia Tiffany.
    Elihu's third and final marriage took place in Bristol to a widow Lucretia Kingsbury Tiffany. There were no children from their union. This was (?future) mother-in-law to Elihu's daughter Ina.

    Enoch married Emeline Reed in 1854. Emeline (daughter of Reverand Abner Reed and Lorania Case) was born on 11 Aug 1837 in Bristol, Ontario Co., New York, USA; died on 28 Aug 1869 in Bristol, Ontario Co., New York, USA; was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Bristol, Ontario Co., New York, USA.
