I am looking for information on James BRIGGS listed in the 1870 Clark Co IL census.His wife is listed as Mary (DOTSON?) and his children as James bc 1863 and Jesse bc 1867.James (the father) was born about 1830 in NY.
Cindy Bugg lists a James BRIGGS bc 1848 NY.I'm wondering if the 1848 date can be verified.If he was really born in 1848, he was only 13 when he married and only 14 when his first child was born.
Thanks for your time. PhyllisMillerFleming@starband.net
