but what if the John Friggens was actually her Brother?
Although anything is possible I would doubt it.
First thing to consider is the fact that Agnes was illegitimate and then we think about the fact that she named 'a' father when she married. She was baptised at age 11, possibly by Dinah White, so from that she would have known her mother was Grace Friggens. But did she know at that time that she was illegitimate?
She may have just picked 'a name' for the marriage record.
When Agnes married for the third time in Michigan the record shows that the name of her father was 'not known'. In fact the record shows that her maiden name was not known and nor were the names of either of her parents.
Yes, her brother may have been responsible .................. but then so could the King of Spain for all we know.
But IF the father really was 'a' John Friggens and I had five bob to spare then I would be putting it on her cousin as being the likely culprit.
BTW - If you want to find brother John in the 1871 Census then try looking for John GRIGGENS if you are using Ancestry!
He married Nancy Eddy at Gulval 12th November 1870 and was an innkeeper at Long Rock. (Very likely the Mount View .................. not the I know much about that particular establishment! )
