    • According to a deed dated 8 Feb 1828, Solomon Bridges was already deceased and had been living in Oglethorpe County. A piece of land he owned in Putnam County was sold at auction to John Dupree.

      Notice was published in November 1827 in the Georgia Journal announcing the sale. He must have been dead before that.

  • Notes 
    • NOTE: Uncertain, but looks likely. I am becoming much less certain of this Solomon Bridges and his connection to either Herod as a child or Meshack as a father.

      Note that the theory of Susanna Flournoy as Solomon Bridges wife may be full of holes. Betty Wren really believes that his wife was Jane Huckaby.

      There is an estate package in Oglethorpe County for a Solomon Bridges, died 1825 but has all wrong children.

      War of 1812 service. 4 Regiment (Booth's), Georgia Militia, Private.
