Re: Briggs Family of Virginia,Tennessee and Missouri
Could he be a brother to my James L. Briggs, b. VA about 1808? James L.'s first son was named William M. Briggs. I have not been able to find James L.'s parents.

James L. lived in Mississippi, but his first marriage may have been in Tennessee.I found:
James Briggs m. Elizabeth Wray
Davidson County, Tennessee
29 Nov 1827
I haven't finished checking this out yet to see if I can find more info about her.
James L. and one male child under 5 were residents of Monroe County, MS, in 1830.
James L. married Ann Manly -I don't have the date. His next child was born in 1835.
Let me know if you think there may be a connection.
