This group is set up to enhance communications and reunions among descendents of Henry Randolph Briggs (b.1848 in Barrington IL, d. 1922 in St Paul, MN) and Octavia McSpadden Briggs (b.1850, d 1945, St. Paul, MN). They had 7 children. The descendents of 2 of these 7 - Briggs and Amidon cousins - met on the Oregon Coast in the summer of 2004; these cousins are descended either from (1) (Julia) Mabel Briggs [1871-1957] who married Edmund Perry Amidon [1865-1921] or (2) George Mc Spadden Briggs [1884-1970] who married Mary Etta McNelly [1885-1980]. The other 5 children of Henry and Octavia Briggs were: Mark Harmon Briggs, Olive Elvira Briggs MacComber, Ealy Grannis Briggs, Alona Mae Briggs (Amidon), and Mary Octavia Briggs (Sargent). Descendents of these other Henry and Octavia Briggs family siblings would also be welcome to this group.
