Thank you so much for posting this! My father was John Samuel Bridgewater, born in the late 1800s of James Melvin and Jennie (Owen) Bridgewater and died in 1969 in Florida.My mother divorced him when I was a baby, so I never got much info. His sisters were Emma Bridgewater Tiplady and Marie (don't know who she married) and his brothers were Bennett and Owen.Aunt Emma wrote me a letter just before she died and included some family history.I only met her - not the others - so I have been trying to piece together the genealogy.This posting is the most comprehensive list I've found. I'm sure that she said we are descended from Christian because she included a picture of his grave. She said the Bridgewater Family Bible was in the possession of Christian, but after he died there was a fire in the home and it burned up.
