Info I have on Sampson Bridger, Twiggs CO, GA is as follows:I will post this and maybe get some help from sone of our cousins on this man.Sampson, b. 4 Oct 1787 NC, d. 17 Aug 1873, Twiggs Co, GA.(This info from cousin Monica)
1850 U.S. Census lists, p. 191, 84th Division TWiggs Co,GA:Sampson Bridger, 63, Sarah Bridger, 45, Penelope Fan (?), 39, Mary A., 9, Hugh Lloyd, 29.All born in NC except the 9 yr. old Mary A., b. in GA.(Hugh "Lloyd" really Hugh Floyd, most likely, & works for Sampson since there are two or three families of Floyds living next to Sampson.(This info from printed census info, NOT read by myself)
Same Census, living next door:James W. Bridger, 24, b. in GA., Lucinda (wife) 21, Sarah Ann, 1.(This is James Washington Bridger, b. 1826 married Lucinda Sauls).
1860 U. S., Twiggs Co, GA (hsehold # 556)Census lists, Sampson Bridges, 72, b. NC, Absala, 57, b. NC.Did Sarah die and Sampson marry Absala?I think this is true since: In 1850 Census living close to Sampson is widow:"Absalain McMillan" b. NC.
I would very much appreciate any help sorting out this family.Who were his children?
