"At the William Simmons place Samuel Golden settled in 1825 and lived here for several years. In 1838 Jesse Briggs bought this place. In 1830 William Briggs built a mill at the place now owned by the A.W. Anderson heirs. William Briggs was the father of Jesse, James (Pap), William and John Briggs. The late John Briggs, who died recently in the 2nd disrict and his brother Wiliam were for years prosperous citizens of the 7th district. Briggs chapel was named either for them or their father, who was a Methodist preacher. In 1840 William Briggs Sr. sold his land to Joseph Campbell who bought them for Alex. (Biscuit) Baker and Thomas Stuart. Stuart and Baker improved the Briggs sawmill and gristmill and added a carding factory, thus giving to the people of this section a convenience which they had not had hitherto possessed. This was for years the most extensive business of the kind in the county." William Briggs Sr b.~1787 in Union Co.
