I am looking for James H. Briggs, b. about 1825, also from Ireland. I don't know where he was from in Ireland, butit seems most Briggs were located in County Antrim or County Armagh. At some time James came to the US, to Virginia, then to New Orleans, where he was married in 1848. Perhaps, we are talking about about members of the same family. Briggs does not seem to be a very common name in Ireland.
