Bob, Would you be willing to review the names of the children of my Polly Briggs (the one whose lineage is unresolved) and her husband, Simeon Parkhurst?Perhaps you can find some similar naming patterns to either of the Briggs lines you spoke of - it's a thought.
The children are:Jabez (that is definitely a PARKHURST family name); Susan; Sally; Anson; Nelson; Phebe; George W.; and Mary Ann.All these children were born in Whitestown, Oneida Co., NY.
Many thanks for your help.

By the way, are you related to the James E. BRIGGS, b 23 Apr 1835 at Williamstown VT?I read a bio on him that was posted on the internet by Jenny Farnham.James E. Briggs moved his family to Newark, Wayne Co., NY - and there "he gathered about him the larger portion of his own and his wife's relatives."I bring this up because 4 generations later,my Polly BRIGGS' 2G Granddaughter, Gertrude Inez Fisher, marries Ivan Claude Jagger in Palmyra, Wayne County, NY.......and that is just a stone's throw down the road from Newark.Ya see, I really am grasping at straws!!!
