The Bridger Family Association was formed in May of 2006 to perpetuate the memory of Gen. Joseph Bridger (b. by 1631/2 – d.1686) of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, who was one of Colonial America’s most significant leaders. The Association’s founders are Jean Birdsong Tomes, William P. Carrell II and James A. Bridger, and its organizational meeting was held on May 21, 2006 at Historic St. Luke’s Church near Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, Virginia.

  1. My name is Kathryn Bridger Case. I visited St. Luke’s last fall after reading about the Bridger’s reunions. I would like to become a member. I don’t really know how I fit on the Bridger family tree but I felt like I “belonged” at St. Luke’s.

  2. Hi Kathryn, I’m so glad you visited St. Luke’s. I understand when you say you felt you “belonged” at St. Luke’s. I felt the same way! I will email you about membership in the Bridger Family Association.

  3. My husband Jerry Lee Bridges is a descendant of Joseph Bridger through my genealogy research and would like to join the Bridger Association.
