"BRIGGS.—At Gouverneur July 23, after a brief illness, Mrs. Newton Briggs, formerly of Franklin county, aged nearly 76 years. Deceased was a native of Bellmont, the daughter of Wayne and Cynda Walbridge. Her maiden name was Jennie Walbridge. She was the last survivor of a family of eight. Her childhood and youth were passed in Bellmont where she attended the common schools and later received instruction at Franklin Academy, which was followed by several years of teaching in the county’s rural schools. In 1880 she married the late Newton Briggs and went to his home in Madison, Wis., to reside. There her married life was spent, but after the death of Mr. Briggs she returned East to spend the remainder of her days residing in Malone and later making her home in Gouverneur where she passed away. Mrs. Briggs was a woman of personal charm and intelligence, whose kindly sympathetic spirit made her many friends, and her death is deeply mourned by all her acquaintances. She possessed the Christian virtues and was long a loyal and active worker in the Christian Science church. She leaves no relatives other than nephews and nieces, among whom are Miss Jennie Walbridge, Mrs. W.D. Williamson, D.H. Merrill and Karl H. Walbridge of Malone; Mrs. Leonard Berry of Wolcott, N.Y.; Mrs. Minnie Stone of Burke; Ralph Walbridge of Oxford, N.Y.; and Mrs. Eunice Cox of Whitewater, Wis. The remains were brought to Malone Saturday and the funeral was held from the Walbridge home on Webster Street Saturday afternoon. Rev. W.D. Marsh officiating; interment in Bellmont."
