Dear John:

I don't see that anyone has ever replied to your posting regarding your family. Have you been able to come up with any more information than what you had when you posted your note in 2002?

I had a quick look through the censuses this evening - but could only find what looks to be your father in 1930 living in Seattle with wife Regina and, at that time, 7 children. I couldn't find him in 1920, 1910 or 1900. Most of the 1880 census was destroyed, unfortunately.

In 1930, John H. Bridge is described as having been born in Illinois, while his father was born in Ohio and his mother in Pennsylvania. In 1880, there is a C. V. Bridge, age 45 and a teacher, who was living in Madison, Illinois, but was born in Ohio, as were both of his parents. His wife, M. J., was born in Pennsylvania, as were both of her parents.

Do you think that this could be your grandfather?

If so, I'll be happy to so more checking for you.
