The Kansas State Historical Society has a webpage for a three span truss bridge that was located in Section 11, Township 33 South, Range 16 East in Montgomery County, Kansas. The page describes the bridge as being eight miles north of Coffeyville, KS. The bridge consisted of an eight panel, pin-connected Parker Camelback through truss, with a Pratt through truss on each end. The bridge was supported by massive stone pillars (probably limestone) and appeared to feature pipe railings. The main span had A-frame portal bracing.

One of a few online references to the McTaggart Bridge:
The bridge in the picture is mc taggart bridge. As I commented earlier you can see the dam in the background. First picture I have ever seen of this bridge. Nice to see.
This bridge was demolished. What you see in the satellite pictures is a four foot tall dam that expans the width of the river. Except the middle six feet is missing. The pillars were made of sandstone. Many of the blocks are still on the west bank. My family owned the farmland west of this bridge for generations. I was told that the first settlers came across this ford where the bridge was eventually built. Before that it was used by native Americans to cross the verdigris. I have fount arrowheads in the immediate area.
This bridge probably matches this one from the KSHS site because the location appears to match (Sec 11, T33s, R16e:
I will write an essay about this bridge shortly, but to make a long story short, I had previously considered this bridge to be lost.
