Private Theodore BRIGGS served under General Carlton Co. B, 1st Regiment, California Volunteers, during the Civil War. Pvt. Briggs mustered out in 1865 at Fort Union, New Mexico.

Theodore BRIGGS married Ynesa MONTOYA at Sapello, San Miguel County, New Mexico, in 1865. They had a daughter named Perfillia born 1867 in San Miguel County, NM.

Ynesa died 1897 at Old Tascosa, Oldham County, Texas, and is buried at Romero Cemetery, Tascosa (now Boys Ranch), Oldham County, Texas.

Theodore BRIGGS married a second time to Emma MITCHELL in 1900 in Oldham County, Texas. A woman named Emma Briggs is listed in the 1900 Census for Oldham County, Texas, which lists two people in the household, Emma age 39 and son, Joseph Mitchell, age 15. They were both born in Tennessee. The census indicates that Emma was married and had been been in the present marriage 0 or 2 years (written over and difficult to read), and that she was the mother of two living children.

Emma's second husband, THEODORE BRIGGS, died in 1903 in Oklahoma, at age 68. He was buried at Garrett Cemetery in Cimarron County, Oklahoma.

I am looking for the place of death and burial for Emma MITCHELL BRIGGS.
