I have a big mix-up and need help to straighten it out My GGG Grandfather WITHERAL ANDERSON WILSON first married Melinda Spruce-they hadhad James my GG in 1834 Daniel-1835 Almur Alvin-1837 In his (WA) will/probate he lists the "heirs" of Malinda children with the last name of Bridges =Caldonia-1839 Mary-1839 William R-1841 Malinda Jane-1847 but Melinda and WA had Robert d-1844 Melinda-1845 they were in Tenn in 1835-Ark 1837 Tenn-1839 and Ark 1841 how can there be children named Bridges (my informant in Conway and Pope told me Melinda was married to William R. Bridges I can not find divorce certificate for WA and Melinda if they divorced and she married William then divorced and she re-married WA and had more children And why the trips back and forth to Tenn then Ark-then Tenn and back to Ark??
In fact I have never found marriage certificate for any of them.
Problem two found a Mary E. Bridges married to a W.T Raley but when I found the couple in the census the Wife is listed as "Caldonia" there was a Mary and a twin Caldonia in the Bridges family group
I am so mixed up and could really use some help to "fix" this "understand it" whatever At this point I will take anyone's "guess" as I am stumped!!!
Carol WIlson Lopez PS WA later married Mary Prince and they had children I have not been able to find
