Subject: RE: Bridgman, Davis,
According to my information:Robert Bridgeman and Polly (aka Mary) Davis were both born abt 1799 from
census records. They were married in Wythe Co, Va in April 1822. They lived in Coalgrove, Lawrence Co., OH from abt 1828. They had a daughter named Elizabeth born 1826 in Wythe Co, Va so none of this fits the scenerio. In 1810 census I find Mary (Polly) Bridgeman living in Alexander Co, NC with two children, a boy between 0-10 (possibly Robert who was born abt 1799) and a girl 10-16 (possibly Nancy who married Jeremiah and was born abt 1794 from 1860 census In IL or as late as 1805 from 1850 census. It is known fact that Mary was married to Franklin from papers I sent you (I will send hard copy next week). Polly  Bridgman was between 28-45 so earliest she could have been born was 1765. In papers of 1859 indicates she is abt 90. 1860  census indicates she is 93, but 1850 census indicates 70. Everything from pension fits and she indicated she went back to Iredell and we find her there in 1810. I will have to look for her neighbors but I am sure I will find Jeremiah there. Was their a relationship between Davis and Simmons besides Elizabeth and Nancy? Since Mary did not say in pension file where they lived after marriage, I cannot find Thomas and Mary anywhere. Probably the name is spelled wrong in indexes as I have copied indexes from lots of states in an effort to find them. John Bridgman of Bledsoe, TN is known brother of William of Wythe,VA and later Campbell Co, Tn. He was born in Richmond, VA in 1789 and moved to Wythe Co, VA at age 5, at age 21 moved to Campbell Co, TN and then to Bledsoe.

I tried to contact Sandy e-mail was invalid, do'nt know Jeremiah's parents or grandparents names.
I keep getting the feeling the Davis came from what is now West Virgina. Thank for information.
Jack.

Doesn't seem to be much information out there on Robert Bridgeman. Found this on a geneology site.


Here is little I have on Robert Bridgeman. I believe he may be related to Matthew Bridgman/Bridgeman born in Bedford Co., VA and married in Surry Co., NC. The Matthew Bridgman family moved into the Washington co., VA area. According to his son, Matthew, he had a life interest in 10 acres of land in Washington Co., VA. Suspect that Robert is also related to Joshua Bridgeman/Bridgman who married Elizabeth Beasley in Stokes co., NC in 1819. Just some hints that may help.
I have a Jeremiah Davis who married a Bridgman girl and a Simmons who married her sister. I have it on my other computer but will send it soon. Please share anything you have on the ancestors of Mary "Polly" Davis.
