my dad and all his relatives i know of always said all brigman's were related - so yes i think we're cousins - betty, ralph and george edward (he was always called ed) were my father's brothers and sister - my dad's father - george brigman is whom i'm named after. my mother told me my grandmother - flossie brigman - maiden name was lamb. i'm not sure when my grandparents were divorced - but i know my grandfather left the family in the late 20's to work in new york (electricial contractor) and he worked on the empire state bldg. - i also know my uncle geroge edward was a boxer - who boxed for the cotton mill owners and also as an amatuer in the military. he had a 10 round draw with the featherweight champion at one time.
