Forgive me for intruding on your conversation, but I am intrigued by your messages and must respond...:)
I too have a Briggs family from this same area in Wisconsin.My ggg grandparents were Sidney Briggs, and Mary UNKNOWN.I have not been able to prove this yet, but family lore says that 'my' Sidney Briggs came to Berlin?, in Green Lake county, c. 1854.
"My' Sidney Briggs was born 1810-1811 in New York.He had the following children that I know of:
Charles D., or V.R., Briggs, born 20 Feb. 1838 in Rensselaer Co.,NY; died 1924 in Burnett Co., WI. (my gg grandfather).
Abram Briggs Daniel Briggs Isaac Briggs.
I do not know if Sidney had any more children than this. Do any of these Briggs names sound familiar?
It's definitely interesting for me to learn that there is a will/probate records at the Green Lake? County seat for Sidney(?).Can you please tell me how I would go about obtaining a copy of this will/probate records?I would most certainly appreciate it. :)
