Can you please look up

Briggs, Elizabeth


for me.  My specific interest is that I believe this is the mother of my great-great grandfather Francis Marion Briggs born 11 Dec 1852.  I believe his father was Henry Briggs who died 5 Oct 1854 and so does not appear in the 1860 census.  Thank you very much.
