Bailey, Heritage of Toe River Valley Vol. 1, p. 162: "Howell Milburn Briggs married Naoma Honeycutt (1828-186?) and lived in Yancey County North Carolina. Their children were: A: Cecila S. b.1848; Lauretta b. 1849; Noah M. b.1853; John W. b: January 1857; Nicey M. b. 1857, twin with John W; William R. b. 1860; Joseph Garrison b. 1863; Silas Austin b. 1865; Turner Profitt 4/12/1866 - 11/19/1955; Naoma b. 1869."
"Howell was in the Civil War, serving in the Confederate Army Co. F, 17 NC Inf. People said that Howell was a PSreacher. His second wife was Malinda Hensley, Carolina."
Bailey adds information and changes some in a footnote, same page: "Nicey M. was named Bernice; she married Mark Wells and has descendants in Madison Co. NC." There is much more information on Nicey's siblings and their posterity.
