I am curious about an Andrew County, Missouri, marriage record for a Philip Briggs & Elizabeth Bradley on Jan 8th, 1847.
I think this might be Philip Briggs of Brown County, Illinois, who lived in Missouri for a short time during the late 1840s. He would have been 55 at the time of this marriage.
Philip is found back in Brown County, IL, on the 1850 census with a wife Elizabeth who is about his age & was born in Kentucky.
The only other Bradley family in Andrew County, MO, on the 1850 census is that of James Washington Bradley & Emaline Cogdill. James was also born in Kentucky, so it is possible that he is a cousin or nephew of Elizabeth Bradley.
Any information about this Bradley family or the Briggs family during their short stay in Andrew County is greatly appreciated.
