Frank Bridson was one of the leading dairy farmers in the early years of Beechwood, maintaining an excellent Guernsey herd. There were five children in the family. Robert was killed in action in France in November 1944. Stanley worked on his father's farm most of his life and died in April 1959. There were three daughters, Anna, Mrs. Martinkewicz, a nurse; Lillian, Mrs. Vogt; and Inez, Mrs. D.E. Wheeler.

In the woods between Bridsons (which was P.O. Greenlund) and Dad [Frank Nyren]'s farm was a cabin built by the Menominee Indians who lived in this cabin. The Indian trail was below Saxons, which is Hedstrom's farm, and came out on top of Elmleaf's hill which met the Old Beechwood road going to Iron River where the playground now is. The Indians would lie across the road on top of Elmleaf's hill and wouldn't get off the road until they were given something by passersby. The Indians moved to Shawano, Wisconsin.
Bridsons and Bergstroms both lost their homes in fires.
