     Addie Scott and Jonathan Scott appeared on the 1880 U.S. Federal Census of Seward Twp., Winnebago County, Illinois, enumerated 1 June 1880, enumerated as a Farmer. Their children Florence, Ella and Charles were listed as living with them.5
     She also went by the name of Addie Scott in the 1880 census.5
     The following information is from my personal research, July 2001:
I assume that Sarah A Bridgeland and Ada Bridgland are the same person. Earlier information showed that Sarah A married an unknown Scott. Recent research shows that Ada Brdigeland married John Sykes in Winnebago County. The date and location seem to fit.8

The son of Alfred and Hannah Bridgeland, pioneer residents of this vicinity, he was born in Seward township Feb. 17, 1860, and had resided in Seward and the Middle Creek community all of his life. His marriage to Anna J. Smith of Winnebago took place Dec. 22, 1887.

The following biographical information appeared, 5 July 2001:
George D. Bridgeland is my Grandfather. He had twin boys born 11/22/1889.
His brother was William Wright Bridgeland, who was the father of Alfred. I grew up with their daughters and still are very close to them and their children. We all grew up in the Middle Creek Church area of Illinois.
Just last week that part of the Bridgeland family had a reunion and I provided some genealogy information for their church service.

Last January they met here at our house and we reviewed work I had done on the Scotch side of the family.8
