1Weld, Hattie L. Borden, Borden, Richard & Joan,  who settled in Portsmouth R.I., Historical and genealogical record of the descendants..., Albany, N.Y. : Joel Munsell, [1899], page 139, FHL US/CAN Film 512. "400. SIMEON was born in Fall River in 1759. "His father having died at the age of 40, and he being the eldest son, he was forced to engage in active business at an early date. Like his father, he worked in the fulling mill till he had acquired a full knowledge of the business, aiding his mother at the same time in the general management of the
estate left by his father, which comprised all that his father and grandfather Joseph had left. At the age of 27 he married Amy Briggs, the daughter of Capt. Nathaniel Briggs of Tiverton, June 15, 4786. Some time previous to this he was engaged in lumbering, furnishing white oak timber and plank for the building of ships, and other vessels for the coasting trade, to replace those destroyed by the English during the war. He also took up a new privilege on the stream, now owned by the Troy Company, where he erected a saw mill to facilitate his operations in lumber. This, of course, created some sensation, and a lawsuit; but he maintained his position, the suit terminating in his favor. This added materially to the value of his estate. About 1790 Mr. Borden, Seth Russell of Dartmouth, and Cact. Samuel Borden, late of Fairhaven, fitted two or three small vessels from Fall River for whaling on our coast, to cruise from George's Banks to Cape May. I can find no records of these transactions, and cannot speak of any great success. They followed it several seasons, until Capt. Borden settled in Fairhaven, and Seth Russel in New Bedford, and Mr. Borden abandoned the business, and the cnly article left to remind us of this enterprise is an old try pot which came out of these whalers, which Mr. Borden brought "to his farm in Tiverton to boil potatoes for his hogs. It is now in the possession of his daughter, the widow of the Hon. Job Durfee, late Chief Justice of Rhode Island. Mr. Borden removed to Tiverton in 1806. He was an amiable, kind-hearted man, animated in conversation, and a pleasant companion; but in Ihe latter part of his life he became negligent, and, consequently he left his estate in an embarrassed condition, and exposed to great impositions from dishonest persons. He died November 27, 1811, aged 52 years. Mrs. Borden died May 26, 1817, aged 52 years. Her name was Amy Briggs. They were married June 15, 1786." S."
