Not sure who the correct parents are for Amos Briggs. Online trees have both. Needs some research and then MP / curator note.
* Jonathan Briggs & Experience (Harvey) Harvey
* William Briggs & Sarah Briggs (Macomber) of the Plymouth Colony

Historic Homes and Places and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs ..., Volume 4 says William:

pain family book (probably more reliable than Cutter) seems to say Jonathan & Experience


There is a Briggs family book, I see the marriage & kids, can't figure out the parents yet - maybe you will have better luck?

I completed another recent merge on this that had Jonathan Briggs & Experience Harvey. I see in both cases Bård Asphjell updated the parents by removing Jonathan and Experience, leaving William and Sarah.

Bård Asphjell, do you have some information that might be able to clear up this ancestry. That way Erica or I could add a curator note to reduce future confusion and we'd have something in this discussion thread as to why we chose one set of parents over the other.

In 1700 a member of the first military company of Taunton, Mass. "Representative men and old families of southeastern Massachusetts" says he was the son of William and Sarah (Macumber) Briggs, and probably the granndson of Clement Briggs. However, the probate record of Jonathan Briggs lists Amos among his sons. He received his distribution of the estate of his father on March 30, 1709.
