Mary Miller Briggs

Copyright 2006, Will Johnson,, Professional Genealogist, All Rights Reserved

AFN: 3TM0-T3 Born 6 Jul 1826 at Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana to Simeon Briggs and Katherine Garnet. Her parent's names come from the Family Data Collection (see below), but is also repeated in the Ancestral File. This same complete grouping, her, spouse, her parents, repeats in the Sealings for the Dead 1965-1970 in the IGI, so someone submit it at least that early.

She married Lewis Trout (b 1827) on 23 Jan 1846 in Hocking County, Ohio. By Aug 1855 they are living in Henry County, Iowa (per their daughter Catherine's death certificate).

She is enumerated on the 1880 census with her husband and children in North Fork, Barton County, Missouri. She is on the 1900 census still living in North Fork, now as a widow, living with her unmarried son William. Her parents birthstates are there listed as Massachusetts for father and Pennsylvania for mother.

List of their children


The death Certificate extract for Catherine (Trout) Evans names her parents as Louis Trout and Mary Briggs, and that Catherine was born 13 Aug 1855 in Henry County, Iowa.

This same Catherine's census extracts for 1880, 1900 and 1910 state that her father was born in Ohio and her mother in Indiana.

In the 1880 census, on the page just prior to the one that Catherine (Trout) Evans appears on with her husband and child, is a family with parents Lewis Trout 53 b Ohio and his wife Mary 53 b Indiana.

Two other of Mary's children, Hannah who appears here in the Family Data Collection, and Lewis again verify that her name was "Mary Miller Briggs", and add that Hannah was born 1 Dec 1863 at Coles, Illinois.
