The information I have I got from my uncle, who is now deceased, so I can't ask him any questions. But this is the information I have: He traced the Briggs family back to a John Briggs of East Greenwich, Kent County, Rhode Island. He and his wife Frances had a son Richard (b.Feb.1,1675, d.1733). Richard married Susannah Spencer on Dec.23, 1700 and they had eight children. After Susannah's death Richard married Experience Tarbox and they had four children. One of them was Daniel,(b.March 29, 1730, d.1820). Daniel, of North Kingstown, R.I., married Elizabeth Spencer, daughter of Thomas, on Jan.17,1754, in East Greenwich. They had four children, all born in North Kingstown. Daniel's will was recorded in North Clarendon, VT. He erected the first frame house in thar town in 1777. I have that Jeremiah was the son of this Daniel Briggs and Elizabeth Spencer, but I don't have the names of their other three children.
