Elnathan's wife, who is buried next to him, was Bethiah Ward, his 1st cousin, b. also at Marlborough, dau. of William Ward and Hannah Brigham.

Elnathan Brigham and Bethiah Ward m. June 17, 1705 at Marborough, MA, with Elnathan's name errantly written as "(Jo)nathan" Brigham in the printed marriage record.

• ii. Priscilla, b. Apr. 3, 1709; m. Jan. 2, 1725/6 at Coventry, Conn., Matthias Marsh. Four children recorded at Coventry, but likely others due to the years of birth betw. the two youngest and two oldest recorded children.

• iii Dinah, b. Aug. 31, 1711 and d. unm. Feb. 2, 1737/8 at Coventry, Conn.

• iv. Prudence b. Jan. 28, 1714/5; d. an infant at Marlborough Feb. 3, 1714/5.

Note: The above annotated data is chiefly from Vol. One of "The History of the Brigham Family." It includes a purported dau. named Jerusha, who "married 1729, Benjamin Robinson of Windham, Conn..." This is an error. Benjamin Robinson (Peter, Isaac, Rev. John), b. Feb. 23, 1703/4 at Tisbury, Mass., m. Jerusha BINGHAM, dau. of Capt Samuel Bingham and Faith Ripley (Hannah [Joshua Ripley], Maj. Wm., Gov. Wm. Bradford), b. Feb. 2, 1708/9 at Windham, Conn.
