I am trying to find my gg grandfathers parents and/or siblings.His name is James M. Bridges b. 1812.Married Mary Matilda Presley in Henry Co, Ga in August 1833.My dad told me that James was born in Jackson Co. SC.I thought that I had found a clue to his parentage but am now not so sure.There was a Joseph J. & Sarah Loving Bridges in Clarke Co., GA that had a son James M. Bridges born Feb 15, 1812.I was really hopefull but have not been able to verify that.
It is my understanding that James lived with the Presley family and worked for them prior to his marriage to Mary Matilda.His in-laws names were Elijah & Lucy Presley.One of Marys parents was born in SC I think that it was Elijah.Lucy, I believe was born in VA.Thank you for any help that you might be able to provide.
