I've "rescued" an old photograph of Mary BRIGGS which was taken at the A.
Hull Studio in Fremont, Nebraska. The photograph appears to have been taken
in the 1870's with Mary likely in her 40's or 50's at the time. In addition
to her name, someone has written "Aunt" on the back of the photograph.
Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information
Mary A. NOYES b. 1813 in NY, married Asa Clark BRIGGS (b. 17 Sept 1812 in
NY) in 1835 in MI and together they had 6 children including, Asa; John;
Alba; James; Hannah; and Jane BRIGGS all born in MI between 1837 and 1848.
Mary NOYES BRIGGS d. in NE in 1902. Census information provides the
1870 census of Logan Creek, NE:
Asa C. BRIGGS, age 57, a Grocer, born VT
Mary Ann BRIGGS, age 57, born NH
Christ PETERSON, age 16, a Farm Laborer, born PA
I am hoping to locate someone from this BRIGGS Family so that this treasured
old photograph can be returned to its rightful place with family. If you
are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please
