Shared note

Forty eight-year-old farmer Moses Bridges was difficult to find In the 1880 US Federal Census for Marion, Jennings, Indiana, as his entry was listed under the name of Maser Briges, a combination of a transcription and a spelling error. He and his second wife, 44-year-old Sarah E have a combined household of his, hers and their children. Moses children by his first wife Melina are 23-year-old Charles, 21-year-old Benjamin, 15-year-old William and 12-year-old Thomas, mistakenly identified as Moses stepson by the census taker. Sarahs children by Richard McCaslin are 15-year-old Louella and 12-year-old John D McCaslin. Moses and Sarahs children are 8-year-old Jacob and 4-year-old Adelbert.

On 10 March 1896, Z H Deputy of Cana, Jennings, Indiana wrote a note to the Clerk of Court giving permission for his daughter Flora to marry Adelbert Bridges. On 12 Mary 1896, Thos [sic] W Russell, Clerk of Jennings County Court issued a marriage license to Adelbert Bridges and Flora Deputy. They were married on 13 Mar 1896 by L S Sanders, Minister of the Gospel.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Marion, Jennings, Indiana, 69-year-old Moses Bridges is a farmer who owns the land he farms free and clear of mortgage. He and his second wife, 64-year-old Sarah E [Cox McCasland] Bridges have been married 31 years. Supposedly Sarah has borne no children, which is an error, as she has two children from her marriage with Richard M McCaslin and two from her marriage with Moses. Their youngest son, 24-year-old farmer Delbert [Adelbert], Delberts wife of 4 years, 21-year-old Flora [Deputy] and their son, 3-year-old Hobart are living with them. Delbert is working on the farm. Living next door is Moses son from his first marriage, 41-year-old farmer Benjamin Bridges, Benjamins 35-year-old wife Ella [McCasland, who is Sarahs daughter by Richard McCasland], and their two children, 11-year-old Carl and 4-year-old Homer.

On 12 Sep 1918, when 43-year-old Bert Bridges registers for the WWI Draft, he states that his residence is Crothersville, Jackson, Indiana, that he was born 4 Aug 1875, that he is white and a native born citizen. He is the owner of a grocery and confectionary in Crothersville, Jackson, Indiana. His nearest relative is his wife Flora Bridges. His description is medium height and build, with light blue eyes and dark brown hair.

Bert Bridges applied for his Social Security Number in Indiana in 1954-1955.

When Bert Bridges died in Mar 1969, his residence was in Brownstown, Jackson, Indiana 47220.
