History of Bridgewater
Resident Families Index
The text as given here is from an original copy of the 1897 Bridgewater facsimile reprint. The page numbers as given herein are from that edition, and do not correspond to the page numbers in the 1840 edition. It is not always possible or practical to try to make a web page look the same as that page in a book, but I have tried to do so within reason in the reformatted pages. I have not tried to preserve the original line breaks, and have added white space so that the paragraphs are easier to distinguish and to read. Links have been added at the bottom of each page, and other links added within large families, in order to make this electronic edition easier to use. The 1840 and 1897 editions of Mitchell do not contain an every-name index, and I have not undertaken the immense labor needed to create one.
I have added some notes [in red and in square brackets] to the reformatted pages to acknowledge volunteer transcribers, to correct typographical errors, and to correct some of Mitchell's major errors with source notes when possible. Most of the significant errors concern the 17th century generations of families, and that information should be used with great caution. Mitchell is on much firmer ground with the 18th and 19th century families. Corrections from pages 8, 423 and 424 have been added to the text [in green and in square brackets, with a link to the corrections page (in parenthesis)].
Families not prefaced with the name of a volunteer in red were transcribed by CJ McNew or Dale H. Cook.
