I am looking for any information on the David & Lucy Brigham family. The family lived in Worcester & Marlboro Mass. in the middle to late 1700's. The children's names are: Martha, Arathusa, Hannah, Lucy, Elmer, Otis, David and Holloway. I have been researching the Whitney family and have hit a "brick wall" trying to find any information on Ephraim Whitney. Some of his children's names were: Otis Crocker, Hannah Crocker, Martha and Arathusa Brigham Whitney. Four of his children's first names are the same as David's chidlren. The first two children had their mother's maiden name as their middle name. I am going under the assumption that Arathusa's middle name (Brigham) might be on Ephraim's side of the family. So I am looking for a Whitney/Brigham connection. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

Debra, this is Roy Foster. This is very ironic. I have a Polly Brigham who married Moses Luce who is a great great grandfather of my mother's mother. Her mother's name is Elma Luce. Polly Brigham was born in Marlboro, Mass. I believe it is the same family.

You might want to check the names. I also am related to a Polly Brigham of Marlboro, MA, only she married Benjamin Carroll of Hopkinton, who promptly relocated to Vermont. I have fairly good documentary evidence.
