    Notes 
    • Jedediah was Captian of the Sloop Nancy and the Schooner Columbia from
      about 1806 until his ship was captured by the British some time
      during the War of 1812, he was taken captive to England. The log for
      the ship survived. There are no entries from Aug 1814 until Dec 1845,
      when it appears he is residing in Honeoye,NY---all the names are those
      of Honeoye residence of the era, who he apparently did work for and it
      is a listing of income from them(Artemas Briggs, John G. Briggs,
      Benjamin Briggs, Levi Noble, Jedediah Briggs, Jacob Shaw, Alinor
      More). He died unmarried in Honeoye,NY.
