I'm not 100% sure, but I think my Grandfather is a relative of your Grandfather, maybe even brothers!My Granfather's name is Loren John Brigman.He was married to Thelma Arizona (Blankenship) Brigman.She passed away in 1985.My Grandparents and all their children live in southern Missouri, around Monett, Purdy, Mt. Vernon, and Aurora.I know my Great Aunt's name was Clemmie from Golden, MO.I don't know her married name.
The name Joy Brigman rings a bell with me because that is also my wife's name.I'll ask my Aunt Rosa Lee, a.k.a family historian, about Joy Enis Brigman and post a response once I hear back from her.I seem to recall her talking about my Grandpa's brother Joy.I remember her saying he a preacher.Do you know if Joy Enis brigman was a preacher?
I live in Lee's Summit, MO but was born in Independence, MO.My father was Freddie Lee Brigman.He died in 1975.He was the oldest of 8 children.My aunts & uncles are: Darrell Wayne, Rosa Lee, Doyle, Sharon Kay, Jo Ann, and Jimmy Dean.
Let me know if you have come acrossed any of these names in your research.
