I have been looking for the family of my Thomas R Briggs, born 30 Dec 1826 in Kent Co, RI.I just discovered that his middle name is RICE.I would be intrested in any information you have on this family.Seems like I may be getting close, at least, to finding the family of Thomas.He married young to Sarah D. ??.I found a Sarah E.(his daughter's name) born in Cambridge, MA in 1844 (I had 1845 according to census.)Thomas was a lawyer, so could have been at college there. In 1850 the family was in Bristol, MA, then moved to MN in 1855, where they all lived until their deaths.
Does anyone know if there was a Thomas born into this family or a brother's family?
