There are some Briggs here in Beaumont, Texas, that may be offspring of Julia Briggs sister Emily. Joseph Reaux was Corinne Reaux father, he was white, her mother was black. It is written by one of Erastus grandson's, that Julia was brought by Louis Petry by boat to Louisiana from Virginia. I don't know if that's true. Emma Prejean's father's name was Demas Prejean. It was found in the Louisian census.
