Ancestral Family Topic 2346

 2346   Unknown
Pedigree Chart 03
My ancestor Mary Briggs, wife of Henry Briggs, was married 3 times before they became husband and wife and was by then a mother to Thomas Blunt and Richard Washington. Yet we do not know who Mary’s parents were. Consequently this Family Topic 2346 is devoted to my Blunt and Washington relations.
