My great-great-grandfather was W. A. C. Bridges. Not sure of his date of birth but he died July 31, 1904. He was married December 18, 1867 to Louisa Eveline Cunningham. Louisa was born May 9, 1848 and died March 1, 1898. They are buried in the Chapel Hill Cemetery, which I believe is in the Rosser area. I don't have parents for W. A. C. or Louisa, but I believe I might have her father as William H. Cunningham. He had a daughter named Louisa, and her age on the census would be about right for her birth to be 1848.

W. A. C. and Louisa Bridges were the parents of my great-grandmother, Martha Louetta Bridges. Martha married James Andrew Rust. James Andrew Rust was born April 6, 1876 and died February 22, 1937. I don't have birth/death dates on Martha at this time.

Martha and James were the parents of my grandmother, Effie Lee Rust. Effie was born March 18, 1907 and died in December of 1977. Effie married Elbert Conrad Shackleford December 15 1926. My grandfather was born September 17, 1903 in Lexington, Henderson Co., TN and died November 1982. Both my grandparents are buried in Huntingdon, TN.

If anyone is familiar with the Bridges, Cunningham, Rust or Shackleford lines I would appreciate corresponding with you regarding these lines. My mother was raised in Huntingdon. She married a Bruceton boy, Jim White, at the First Baptist Church in Huntingdon. Hope to hear from you!
