My greatgrandfather, James Bridges, his mother, Mary Carter Bridges, His sis Amanda Belle Cowswert and the little girl is my grandmother Lera Bridges. This must have been taken after my g grandfather Henry T.Bridges died as Mary is in black mourning attire. I believe this is a rock structure in Johnston Co. I can't tell if there is water there or not.
