Mary Ann Gary Bridges
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1857
Weatherford
Parker County
Texas, USA
Death: 1899
Texas, USA

Beloved mother Mary Ann Gary Bridges. Mother to Mary Alice, Fanny, Laura, Sonne, John, and Gladys Bridges.

Mary Ann is said to have died of either Typhus or diptheria in Kerr County. My Grandmother Gladys Bridges Wells was quite young and could remember ladies "laying her mother out" for burial on the small kitchen table. The father was a share cropper and Mary Ann was buried on the land where that they worked.

After Mary Ann died the younger children were left at an orphanage as "Pap" James Bridges could not care for them. The older sister Fannie Bridges DeNoon kept in touch with the children and as they reached 15 or 16 years of age moved them one by one into her home.
