      Note from cousin:
      Jerusha GARFIELD's mother has this link from Robert's work: Sarah GALE
      I have been working on linking up some of my WARD, BRIGHAM and RICE connections the past few days. In linking up our Joseph BRIGHAM born 1706 to his great grandfather, Thomas BRIGHAM, I came across some interesting other links. Before he married Ruth RICE, she had been married to Elisha WARD, and that he had been married to Comfort BIGELOW.
      Looking for verification of these facts I opened your site, among others, again and added Comfort's data along with that of her parents.
