    --  Green Family Information, received from Houston Green, handwrittenfamily notes

    Betty Jackson Hess refers to Jim Green's wife as Rillie Bridgeman (InLetter 8 extra notes):  "I remember Jim Green's wife's name.  She wasRillie Bridgeman."  The Green Family information from Houston Greenspells the family name Bridgman.  I found her as well as Jim's secondwife in Cemetery Records for Parker County.

    Eliza appears with her parents A J and Rebecca (Kidwell) inWeatherford in the 1880 census.  She is listed there as Eliza B, andis a twin with Margaret I.  They are listed as 3 years old, whichmatches her known birth date of 6 December 1876.  Here the family nameis spelled Bridgeman, though in the family sources we have seen, it isspelled Bridgman.  Next door to the Bridgman household are a Kidwellfamily Robert A and wife Lucy.  At age 35, Robert could be RebeccaKidwell Bridgman's younger brother.
