Stephen D. Briggs died at his residence in West Lebanon, Ind., September 12th, 1896, aged 73 years, 6 months and 20 days. He was born in Clark County, Ohio, Dec. 22, 1822, and was married to Rebecca J. Schoonover on Jan. 29th, 1845. To this union six children were born. His wife and one daughter, Mrs. Wm Foster of this place survive him. Mr. Briggs was one of the pioneers of Warren County. During his early life he lived on a farm, but after moving to West Lebanon he engaged in the business of trading. In this work he made many friends and being of a pleasant disposition he had a jovial word for all. He was a loving husband, a kind father and a faithful friend. The funeral services were held at the Christian Church last Sunday at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Honn, after which all that was mortal was interred in the West Lebanon Cemetery.
