I have to admit I was shocked that I finally received a response to my post.
This is all that I have thus far on my son's Father's family. Their Dad is Donald Briggs, Sr. (no middle initial or name. He told me that his Dad was Ludwig Briggs and Ludwig's dad was Charles or Charlie Briggs. He had no idea what his paternal Grandmother's name was. He said that they lived in Big Woods (Mouton Cove). He said that, "Charlie's wife was a big red faced woman that looked Indian and wore long braids down her back." That is the extent of what I know about the Briggs family.
I do know that his father, Ludwig, died in the late 50's or early 60's either in Orange or Beaumont, Texas from "alleged poisoning" from his live in girlfriend. How true that may or may not be is the question.
I think it is rather sad that you were never interested enough to know more about your family than that;but, it is what it is.
My son's have always asked me a mountain of questions concerning their father's family. Now their kids are asking for information for genealogy reports for school.
ANY information about the family would be greatly appreciated.
Is Lofy Briggs perhaps the sibling of Charlie Briggs or is he the father of Charlie? I am eager to hear.
You can send information directly to me to my E-Mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for any help you may be able to give me.
