Hello Joseph, I am trying to track down a James Briggs, who is said to have been born around 1763 and he died after 1850 in Greenup Co. KY.He had at least two wives, but I don't have their names.He should have married about 1783 to wife #1, and had: Elizabeth(marr. Geo.Bradley) Fanny/Frances b.c. 1800?(marr. Henry C. Prewitt) Nancy Jacob, b.c. 1795(allegedly in PA, but I wonder about that..) Elias b.c. 1798, allegedly in VA somewhere?? *MY LINE:this man moved to/thru Scott Co. IN where he married in 1823 to a Jane Rose and died in Schuyler Co. IL in 1856). John William Mary (some of the girls above married and lived in Floyd Co.KY)
The Jacob named above (I think) married a Mary____and had: James John Wm(who moved to Scioto Co. OH and served in the CW) Mary or May
Was hoping that perhaps you might have something in your files that might help me clinch the ancestry of this James Briggs b.c. 1763(before I forget, James b.c. 1763 definitely had BY HIS SECOND WIFE a son, Isaac Briggs, b.c. 1802 allegedly in Giles Co. VA who marr. an Eliz. Morris and they, in turn, had a son Elias b.1824 KY.
If you have ANYTHING that might help, please contact me!!! Regards Larry D.H. Coats
