Thank you for your response.  The problem is that Jane Briggs of VT's parents are listed as George and Rebecca

Sarah Jane's parents, included on marriage creticate John  and Sophia.  I believe reference to John and Sophia is incorrect but I have no definitive evidence that it is a mistake.  

Any thoughts?  thanks

Agree John and Sophia are incorrect.  Other MA vital statistics do give George W Briggs and Rebecca Haskel as Sarah Jane Danforths parents.

George was my great grandfather's brother, both born mid 1810's.
