    Notes:

    In a newspaper article recognizing Ann Eliza's 87th birthday, the following is written; "In a century-old house overflowing with antique furniture brought from England in the Sloop Nancy, owned by a sea-going ancestor, Mrs. Ann Eliza Briggs of Honeoye yesterday observed her 87th birthday.....As one of the oldest living inhabitants of that region, this octogenarian can recall as a child the flurry of excitement in that locality during the abolition period. The line of underground stations for runaway slaves extended across that stretch(Honeoye) of the country(Honeoye) and cellars of neighbors became temporary hiding places for the fugitives. The village of Honeoye was a center of activity during the Civil War period and Mrs. Briggs remembers the large contingent of soldiers that marched away to war. Born in the vicinity of Canandaigua in 1851, she was educated at a select school conducted during that period in Honeoye."

    Two years later her obituary read; "Ann Eliza Briggs, 89, died in the home of her son, Harry Briggs, in Honeoye, Wednesday, after a long illness, She was born in Canandaigua and spent most of her life in this vicinity. She was on of the oldest residents of this locality. She was active in te Honeoye Congregational Church, of which she was a member, and the Ladies Aid.

    Notes:

    The Flower Fadeth - So faded and perished by the dread disease, pneumonia, Fannie, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Z. Briggs, on Thursday, March 29th, aged twelve and one half years. Seldom have the hearts of the people gone out in deeper sympathy than to this afflicted family, who are now bereft of their only and well-be-loved daughter. Not alone will her place in the union and Sunday school be vacant, but all will miss the bright face and sunny smile of Fannie Briggs. Clothed in white and lying in a casket of purest white, amid flowers (fit emblems of immortality), Fannie was laid to rest in the cemetery at Lake View. Her funeral heald at the Congregational Church on Saturday, was attended by a large concourse of people.
    (Livonia Gazette, April 6, 1888)

    "Come not again, dear child. If thou - By and chance couldst break that vow - Of silence at thy last hour made; - If to this grim life unafraid - Thou couldst return, and melt the frost - Wherein thy bright limo's power was lost, - Still would I whisper since so fair - This silent comradeship we share - Yes, whisper ' mid the unbidden rain - Of tears: 'Come not, come not again!'"

    Died:
    Died of Acute Typhoid Pneumonia after 10 days.
