I have seen numerous mentions of a Peleg Briggs while looking for my Briggs ancestors. I don't know if it is the same Peleg but the name is unique enough that it may be. I'm just starting my research so I cant tell you exactly where I was but I'll be sure to jot it down if you want to check with me later. The two places I've been concentrating on are Allegany and Yates County, N.Y. I'm pretty sure that it was in Allegany County that I saw Peleg but there are tons of Briggs' in both places. I'm looking for Adelbert Briggs b. July 10,1852 d. July 24, 1919. Married to Weltha Diane Selden Feb. 4, 1886. 4 children- Fern Mabel b. 1888, John A. b. 1889, Gertrude Lugena b. 1891, and Howard Selden b. 1895. Maybe there is a tie in here somewhere. I hope this helps.
