I don't have a lot of information on my Briggs family.My great grandmother was Minnie Frances Scott.Her parents were James T. Scott and he was adopted so we no nothing of his family.He was married to Hattie C. Briggs she is buried in the Wheatland Cem. in Dallas Texas.When I was looking through the census I found a Hattie C. born 1878 which would be just about the right time, this was in Lamar Co.It listed her parents as F.M Briggs born in Mississippi in 1842 and his wife was M.A. Briggs born in N.C.in 1841, their children were listed:
O.B. Briggs born in Mississippi in 1870 E.C. Briggs born in Texas in 1873 James E. Briggs born in Texas in 1876 Hattie C. Briggs born in Texas in 1878
So..I am only guessing that this is my Hattie C. Briggs.My Hattie married James T. Scott and their children were:
As I said before Minnie Frances is my g-grandmother and she married Jesse William Mitchell and they had only one child a son.They lived in the Duncanville, Cedar Hill and Midlothian are in Texas, this would be Dallas County for the first two and Ellis County for Midlothian.Let me know if any of this sounds like a match, thank you so much.
