    [Note: Some of the following documents are hard to read. In all except one instance, it is difficult to discern whether Elizabeth's husband's name is Stow or How (only consent to approve will shows a clear signature that can only be Stow). Zipporah's husband's name could be Worrell or Warren (it is Warren, per other sources).]
    Will of "Nathan Brigham of the Town of Marlborough ... Gentleman", dated 2 Jun 1740, proved 23 Mar 1746, mentions "Mahetable my well beloved wife ... Excepting what was mine in the Lifetime of Elizabeth my former wife", "Nathan Brigham my Eldest son", "my Son Thomas", "my Son Ephraim Brigham", "my daughter Elizabeth the wife of John Stow","my daughter Sarah", "my daughter Zeporah the wife of John [smudge]", "my daughter Hannah the wife of Jabez Rice", "my three sons viz Nathan Brigham Thomas Brigham and Ephraim Brigham ... Sole Executors".
