Re: NEED HELP READING NAME IN 1920 BOSSIER CENSUS

In Reply to: NEED HELP READING NAME IN 1920 BOSSIER CENSUS by Barbara Crites of 217

Your Thomas E. Bridger/Bridges family was in Lafayette Co., AR in 1920; ED 113 p. 240. His wife was Ellie or Elsie. They had been married 9 years. They had 3 children but only one living, Mary R.
Also living with them was a Mary O. Allums and she was listed as a sister-in-law age 16 and single so this is likely the surname for the wife of Thomas E. Bridger.
In 1910 they were in Bossier Parish but he was listed as E. T. Bridges/Bridger Ed 18 p. 110.
I couldn't read the name of his wife on the 1920 census but it could be something like Rubie but that is just a guess. Hope this helps.
