FYI, attached is an excerpt from an article about a lost jazz great who happened to be a "Briscoe". Her name was Neliska Ann "Baby" Brisco. She is the only "Briscoe
" listed by name in Henry Louis Gates' African-American National Biography (http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~aanb/index.shtml). As far as I can surmise, her father Eddie Briscoe may have been Neville Briscoe's 1st cousin.
Speaking of lost "Briscoes", we are doing our Spring Roundup of Neville Briscoe's descendants.
Our point people in that effort are Ira Briscoe (Communications), Ann Marie Jean (History), the Family Branch Representatives (see below) and You. Since we are still casting some of the lead and supporting roles for family branch reps. we need your suggestions. Here's what we have so far. Branch reps will help the Communications and History committees get up to date with our folks. They will find someone in each family unit under their line who can reach out to siblings and parents. We can use all who will are willing to help.
