*Saluda Co. was formed from Edgefield Dist in 1895, so all of these births

I have an Emma Rushton that might work here in my files, married to a John
Bridges. And this is from the Red Bank Cem. records:

Bridges, Emma Americus RUSHTON [Dec 25 1862] Feb 16 1937
Bridges, John Hamilton [May 1860] Jul 19 1938
Bridges, William Whitfield [Apr 1882] 1919 [DC is
primary for date of death]
Bridges, Jesse [H.] Jul 13 1889 Jul 12 1966

HC identifies them as (top to bottom]
EMMA - w/o John Hamilton Bridges, d/o John Rushton
JOHN H. - m. Emma Americus RUSHTON, s/o Elizabeth & William Bridges
W. W. - m. Ada, s/o Emma Americus RUSHTON & John Hamilton Bridges
JESSE - s/o Emma Americus RUSHTON & John Hamilton Bridges


I took the above cem. records and found the DC of Emma Americus Rushton
Bridges, but could not find the one for John Bridges in a quick search today
between meetings. I didn't have his full name written down with me and only
looked for a John. I did not look for a Hamilton Bridges.
