I am seeking information about the parents and/or siblings of my great-grandfather, Charles E. Briscoe. According to his death certificate, he was born in April of 1866 in Pleasant Hill, Illinois. The following is additional information that might be helpful: He was married March 31, 1896 in Parke County, Indiana, to Anna Mae McDowell. He and Anna lived in Chicago and had three children: Theodore (b. 4/8/1899; d. date unknown; married to Maude Vinson who died; later remarried), Bertram Otto Briscoe (my grandfather; b. 1/22/1900, d. 1949); and Corinne Orabelle Briscoe (b. 8/21/1903). Charles did bridge construction work and belonged to some sort of lodge. He died 2/10/1905 at the age of 38. He was buried in Summit Grove, Indiana Since he died a long, slow death by illness and had plenty of time to tell his wife where to bury him, I figure he selected the burial location. It is in Vermillion County, IN, which neighbors Parke County, IN, where he was married. So I figured he was probably buried in proximity to kin, such as, perhaps, parents or siblings. However, to date, I have not been able to get any further on this than just obtaining the burial certificate.
