Henry Briggs is a native of Scioto county, Ohio, born June 30, 1834. He was reared on a farm and educated in the common schools of Ohio. In 1868 he came to this county and settled where he now lives-then in the country where the wild grass grew high around his house, but now on the business street of Jameson. He has been street commissioner for three years, and was appointed marshal of Jameson in April, 1881.

Mr. Briggs was united in marriage, February 25, 1857, to Miss Annie E. Noble, of Scioto county, Ohio, born September 7, 1836.
