I think there were 4 suspension bridges in Cedar County, with one being the one that Dr. D.M. Eddy designed and built one in 1891 at Stockton. (Cedar County Republican 1891) It collapsed in 1909 when a herd of cows were being driven across (Cedar County Missouri History and Families, 1998) The picture in book previously cited matches your picture.
