The 1860 census lists (illegible) Bridgham, born about 1821, living in Whitneyville, Washington Co., Maine. He was married to Harriet, born about 1829, and had a son Charles, born about 1858. Could be the same family?
The 1880 census lists Thomas W. Brigham (a common mispelling for "Bridgham"), born about 1824 in Maine, farming in Palermo, Waldo, Maine. He was married to Harriet E., born about 1822 in Maine. They had a son, Charles G., born about 1865. Same family?
The 1900 census lists Thomas Bridgham, born Feb., 1823, married to Harriett, born Aug 1831, both living in China, Maine.
Three different birthyears for Harriet, two of which make her too young to have married Columbus Parmeter in 1842. But then, the census is notorious for having wrong ages.
I suspect that all three of these are the same Thomas and Harriet (Worthing) Bridgham. Do you know anything to confirm or disprove this?
