    Phoeba Margaret Bridges
    Marriage 1782

    Notice that the DAR lineage Book above reports the wife's name as Bridgett, with no last name known.  It does note also that that was a first marriage, but gives no informatoin onother wives.

    The marriage record above has the date of 1982, rather than 1788.  The wife's name in that record has the last name of Bridges, a common name in Cleveland and Rutherford County, North Carolina.  That could be where the name Bridgett came from, with the full name not actually known.  On the other hand the name of Pheba (Pheobe?) could be an earlier wife, though the DAR info indicates the first marriage was in 1788.
