The Otsego Farmer
Philip Briggs passed away at his home on upper Main Street, Saturday afternoon, July 14, 1923, after an illness of several months duration from which he was a great sufferer. He was born in Westville, October 27, 1875, the son of Dewitt and Mary Gano Briggs of that place. His early life and young manhood was spent near that place. For 15 years he was a valued employee of the Locust Farm dairy Co., of New York City. Several years ago, they came to Schenevus buying a small farm on upper Main Street, which he conducted and also engaged in chicken and egg commission business.
Mr. Briggs was united in marriage February 12, 1902 to Miss Leta Cornell, of Schenevus, by whom he is survived, also by five sisters. He was a member of the Methodist Church of the Schenevus Valley Grange, a man of fine personality, quiet and unassuming, living for others, more than for himself. His death will be deeply regretted in this community. The funeral service wer held from the Methodist Church, Tuesday at 2 o'clock. His pastor, the Rev. Lloyd Duran, officiated, assisted by Rev. C.M. Connell, of Binghamton, a former pastor. The Schenevus Valley Grange attended the funeral and had charge of the service at the grave. Interment was made in the family plot in the Schenevus Cemetery.
