According to Carolyn J. Weekley’s research, Gray Briggs, recorded paying Medici for two portraits and miniatures in 1769 but those portraits are unlocated. It is unclear if these were portraits of himself and his wife, Dorothy Pleasants Briggs, portraits of his parents, Howell and Lucy Gray Briggs, or other family members. Howell and Lucy Gray Briggs were painted by Medici in 1772.
