Documentation:
* Mary Elizabeth Moses Bridges Bible - Nat's Birth;
* LDS Film #1026025 - Nat & Maggie's Marriage;
* Family Correspondence;
* Texas Death Certificates for Nat, Thomas, Kit;
* Cemetery records found online at City of Stephenville, Erath Co., TX website;
* Census Records; Nat first found in 1880 census of Erath Co., TX in HH of S. S. Thornton, at age 38.
* Erath Appeal Newspaper Abstracts;

Notes:
* 1910 census lists Maggie as having 7 children with 4 alive, thus assumption of "unknown" child and of Louis's death before 1910; Child named Roscoe is unproven as being their other child dead before 1910 but is an a possibility - found obit online for Roscoe Bridges - "Mr. and Mrs. Bridges lost their little boy, Roscoe, last Tuesday morning. The funeral took place at the Baptist Church at 3 o'clock. Stephenville Empire, Sat. 09 Jun 1883" We know Nat & Maggie lived in Stephenville at the time.
