      I am searching for information on a Thomas Abel Briley. He MAY have been
      from Pitt Co., NC. I have not been able to connect him with another Briley
      family. I would love to find his parents and siblings. Has anyone out
      there researching Pitt Co. ever run across him? Also,his wife Mary Ann
      "Polly" Revell?
