Connie.. I realize this is a very old post, but just came across it; have been looking for this information, so thank you. Do you have any information on descendants of this family? Specifically, I am looking for the names of children of the son Ephraim Briggs who married Hannah Ferguson b. c. 1822 d/o John Ferguson(Mary Cowperthwaite, Hugh). I am also looking for the parents of GEORGE W.Briggs b. c. 1841 married to Addie (Adeline Alma Clare)whose oldest son was named Thomas Dow Briggs (married Idella Bailey); and for LORENZO Dow Briggs who married Margaret (Maggie) Randall. Their son was Hazen Ephraim who married my G-Aunt Lena Colwell. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
