I corresponded several years ago with a distant relative of mine whose
Grandfather was Joseph Green Bridges. He married Hala Quintilla Jennings.
They were in Izard County. The lady I corresponded with was Betty Bridges
Staffel. She passed away several years ago. I remember her writing to me
one time about her Bridges being related somehow to the Albert Gallatin
STroud. She has a brother who lives in Oklahoma and got most all of Betty's
research when she passed away. I can give you his address, if you want it.

> I was told by my Great Aunt's who still live in Oxford that Fannie Bridges
was a full blooded Cherokee indian. They also spoke of her daughter (my
Great Grandma Cora White, wife of John William White) practiced Native
American medicine. Does anyone have anything that can confirm this? This one
is driving me nut's! I have seen pictures of Cora standing a good 6 ft. tall
and proud with her long black braids but my family has lacked in telling
enough family stories.
