I see you have researched Samuel Clingman Briggs, Scioto Co., Ohio.
My GG Grandfather is Horace Briggs. However I cannot locate information giving his exact date of birth, his Mother and Father, when he died or where he is buried. I do know the following:
Mine is not the professor from Orange County, New York.
Married - Briggs, Horace & Sally Wood. 4 Aug. 1825 MA, R, A-91 Page 15 - Scioto County Marriages – Ohio
From the 1830 US Census, he was in Fountain County, IN shows him to be 20-30 years (B-abt 1805) of age with a female 20-30 years of age (B-abt 1805 - Prob Sally or Sarah?) and a male under 5 years of age (Prob first son Albert, B-abt1826).
Son - Albert Briggs B- abt 1825
Daughter – Mary Jane Briggs B- 2 Oct 1830 in Posey, Indiana.
Son – Augustus H. Briggs B – 26 Jan 1832 in Posey, Fountain, Indiana.
Horace must have died between 1832 and 1835 because I never found him after 1832 and his wife Sally Briggs was married to William Morin on 13 Aug 1835 in Fountain, Indiana. Indiana Marriage Collection, 1800-1941.
Then on the US Census of 1850, Sarah Maren (Morin) shows up with Augustus Briggs (her son) living with her daughter Mary Jane (Briggs) Burt in Porter, Scioto, OH.
There are some possibilities for this Horace’s father. James Briggs or Robert Briggs on 1830 Census for Fountain, IN. James Briggs on 1840 Census in Olmstead, Cuyahoga, Ohio. Amos Briggs on 1820 Census in Middleburg, Cuyahoga, Ohio. John Briggs on 1830 Census in Fountain, IN. Adam Briggs on 1830 Census in Cuyahoga, OH. Alvin Briggs on 1840 Census in Cuyahoga, OH. Orin Briggs on 1830 Census in Fountain, IN. Otis Briggs on 1830 Census in Cuyahoga, OH. Samuel Briggs on 1830 Census in Scioto, OH.
Thanks in advance for any help or guidance you can give me.
