Brandywine Creek Bridge
Posted March 10, 2008, by Tom Draus (tjdraus [at] mhtc [dot] net)

This Brandywine bridge may have been built by Wiiliam J. Elliott. He was my wife's grandfather and he was a bridge builder in Chicago in partnership with a Mr. Kettler. In 1910 when he was building the bridge my wife's father who was two years at the time and lived in Marion, Oh. He became an orphan in January of 1911 and William's wife Nettie went down to Marion and adopted him in January of 1911. William was for sure bulding a bridge in Summit county in 1910-11...Tom
