I am searching for the parents of my ancestor, Absolom [Abselom] [Absalom]BRIGGS, born 1810 U.S. Don't know where. He married Eliza Jane ABBOTT, born abt 1812 U.S. They emigrated to Wolfe Island, the largest of the 1000 Islands, in Frontenac Co., Ontario, Canada, prior to 1839. Origin = English. Occupation = farmer. Rel. = Episcopal Methodist, as listed in the 1851 census.
Have checked the 1810 & 1820 U.S. census. Tons of Briggs, but cannot find Absalom. Was curious about your surname & wondered if perhaps a BRIGGS had married an ABSALOM before 1810. Thank you from Libby Coon Henson in Toronto
