Thank you for the information, I did not realize there were two until just recently. I had Richard Briggs(& Susanna Spencer) 1674 in Newport born to John Briggs (and Frances Fisher) 1642-Portsmouth.Then John born to John (and Sarah Cornell) Briggs. I have found several references that Richard is the son of John and Frances Fisher Briggs. But now, I feel that the John and Sarah Cornell Briggs are the wrong parents for my John. My Briggs are from Rhode Island and I have proof to Joshua Briggs 1754 in N. Kingston, Rhode Island and have found reference to his father Richard-1735, then Francis-1703, then Richard-1674, then JOhn-1642.
I would really appreciate any information that you would be willing to share. Thanks, Jeannette MAS8315@aol.com
