Seeking original sources for BRIDGES, Barren County, Ky for the 1700's other than what is available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake. Have partially developed two family groups and trying to link other BRIDGES in the area and across the river. Kindly respond by Email.

My ancestor, Mary Polly Bridges, was married to Joseph Huckaby in Allen Co, Ky, and all their kids were born in Barren Co, Ky. I don't have any information on her parents.

I would very much like to know origins/connections of James BRIDGES, Barren Co, KY, (LWT dated 7 Dec 1802; proved same month). Wife,Nancy; childn: Sooky, Elizabeth, Polly, Caty, Ane; Executors: Moses BRIDGES, Johathan CARR; Test: James WALKER, Mary BRIDGES, Margaret BRIDGES.
Moses BRIDGES is my ancestor (Mary was probably his wife). Have been unsuccessful in determining Moses' parentage. The family connections of James may provide valuable clues.

I am interested in the family of Benjamin Williams. He died abt. 1818 in Barren Co. Several of his children married into the Bridges and Huckaby families. Do you have dates on the folks you are searching?

Williams, Benjamin
