My father, George, used to live in Bradford, Manchester, until he got married to Elizabeth Malone and moved to Sale. He had a sister named Ann. He also had a half brother, Tom, and a half sister, Nellie. Nellie married an American, Jim Gilmore and lived in New Jersey. He died and she re-married. There was a Billy Briggs related to my father, who owned a motor cycle shop in Salford. My father died in 1980. Maybe we're related!
