John Washington Strong Brigman lived in Wolf Pit Township it is believed almost all of his life. His is believed to have been born there which sits on the NC/SC line. Marlboro Co. SC or Richmond Co. NC. Census records, wills,land records,court, cemetery records records seem to be the records that so far have netted no definate answer. Part of the problem is the dilemna of too many Johns. Hard to figure out which one belongs to who. Also the fact that so many Brigmans migrated West during the early 1800's. His father could have possibly have been one of those. We have also considered that it could have been an unrecorded birth due to lack of wedlock, due to parental death, or some other unknown family circumstance. The info may be out there or right under our noses. It may just be piecing facts and recognizing connections not located before. Maybe once you look at all your data you will locate something that hasn't surfaced yet. Good to hear from you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
