Bridge records are petitions from the public requesting a bridge to be errected across a river/stream/creek typically where fords used to be, or at locations nearby these earlier crossings. Sometimes, although rare, they would develop a new road, but it would require a bridge across a stream. Never the less, this book, like the many volumes of road records, has an image of the petition along with a short transcript of the information. Some maps show these bridges and as I could locate them in modern times I added those maps as well. A great research tool for road locations, migration paths and some interesting construction information (minimal) costs etc. Updated index, Last, First and added more transcript and information.
