~• "Sophy was the fourteenth child of Mr. Parkman, born in 1755. A little Journal kept bv her for parts of the years 1777 and 1778 is still in existence, but unfortunately ends in July, 1778. She knits her own Stockings and gloves, spins thread, makes a skirt for Mrs. Baker, helps in quiltings, weaves shirts for Elias, bucks yarn, combs flax, scours pewter, &c., for her daily work. Her recreation consists in going to singing school, visiting her friends in the " hospital " sick with small pox, and making little trips to North- borough and even to Boston.

She married Elijah Brigham" (from https://archive.org/stream/diaryofrevebenez00park/diaryofrevebenez00park_djvu.txt )
