I have letter of my great aunts saying that(Hugh) grandpa's brother was Ancel Briggs, the first governor of Iowa.(no proof found) Jason William Briggs was a elder in the LDS church and the cofounder of the RLDS Church. Lived in Wisconsin, Illinois, California, Iowa, Colorado.
My great Aunt and her cousin started on the genealogy a long time ago, my auntcontinued, and now I am working on it.There were some errors in their work.I have a letter saying that we are listed in the 2nd Clement Briggs book andshe sent a copy of it to my great aunt. My mother had it at one time but gave it to a x-aunt, and she can not remember what happened to it.
