Black Genealogy

BRIDGES

Anderson Bridges was born at Crittenden, Kentucky on the farm


of Ennos Champ,

slave owner.

Bridges had a tema of horses and was a teamster in Cincinnati,


Ohio where he earned enough money to buy himself and then his wife,
Minverva,

out of slavery.

Ennos Champ treated his slaves well which is verified by an old


family story passed down to Ann Woodson Mason, Anderson Bridges

86-year-old granddaugter who is in 1987 living in Harveysburg, Ohio.


The story of Champ's considerate treatment of his slaves was passed
on to Mrs. Mason by her mother, Catherine Bridges Woodson. "That old
man would get on a horse and run you down and shoot you, if you did
anything to one of his slaves," said Mrs. Mason.
It is not known when Anderson Bridges married Minerva on the
Camp farm.
There children were:
Elizabeth

Richard

Mary Eliza

James

Edna

Robert

Sylvia
Martha

Catherine,

born 1859

Julia

After buying his way out of slavery, Anderson Bridges became a


Methodist Minister, a profession he followed for the remainder of
his life.

He died in 1879 in Kentucky.

Minerva Bridges moved her family from Crittenden, Kentucky to


Harveysburg, Ohio in 1881. Catherine Bridges married James Stewart
Woodson. Their family included Ann Woodson Mason who was born to
them on November 19, 1901. Ann is the oldest living descendant of
Anderson and Minerva Bridges and lives at 380 East South Street,
Harveysburg, Ohio
45032.
James Stewart Woodson was born in 1851 at Stoney Point,

Virginia within sight of Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.


James's sister, Sally Woodson Bannister would tell the story that
the Woodsons lived wherey could could clearly look at Monticello.

Sally once bought a cupboard from Monticello.

The cupboard has been

used in the mansion during Thomas Jefferson's time.and was a part of


the original furnishings of the home. Sally Woodson Bannister was
a

nurse at the resort at Hot Sulphur Springs, Virginia. All the

earlier generations of the Woodson family are buried at Stoney Point.
