Schimpff and Briggle Connection to the Leas Family
On several occasions I have been asked by members of the Schimpff or Briggle families, "Okay, tell me again, how is my family connected to yours?" If you try to find the connection using my Internet records, you soon get very lost.
The Schimpff family is connected to the Leas family at one place:
John Leas (1816-1897) married Susanna Schimpff (1820-1881).
The Briggle's are connected to the Leas family through their connection with the Schimpff's. The Briggle's are connected to the Schimpff's at one place:
Henry Schimpff, brother of Susanna Schimpff married Caroline Briggle. Caroline's parents were Joseph Briggle (1799-1875) and Caroline Baird.
