Hello--Thank you for contacting me. I hope we can find a connection with our Briggs family. I can go back Benjamin Briggs who was born in Ohio in 1796 and his wife was Adeline (Unknown) born in Ohio in 1814. I do not know who Benjamin's parents were. He was also known as Benjamin Franklin Briggs, his son Franklin was my great-great grandpa. I hope you can help me make a connection and find more on my Briggs family mystery. My Franklin married Mary Ann Fox in Belmont County in 1872. I always thought that my Briggs family must have come from Pa. On my one great-uncle's death records listed him as being of Irish-Scottish decent. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
