    From History of the Brigham Family Vol 1: "He was a Lieut, in the first French War and a distinguished officer. In the service he became warmly attached to Capt. Thomas Gage, afterwards Gen. Gage. To avenge the massacre at Fort William Henry, he and a party volunteered, under the command of Capt. Rogers, to penetrate into Canada, attack and burn the town of St. Francis, and retreat. Having accomplished the task, they were pursued and overtaken by the Indians, who killed and scalped 30 of their number. The remainder fled into the wilderness, and for the most part perished. Of the few who lived to return was Lieut. Brigham, whose deeds of valor were eulogized in ballads. He settled in Southborough, one-half a mile east of the meeting-house. Among other town offices he was chosen one of a committee to 'seat the meeting' in 1778; and one to revise the constitution reported to the towns, in 1786, for their consideration."
