Hickman Lockhart Memorial Bridge
Posted September 2, 2017, by Keith Collier (Mkco11ier [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Hello. Are you familiar with the history of the Hickmam-Lockhart Bridge? My grandmother, Jennie Mai Hickman Collier, told me years ago that the bridge was originally named for her brother who died in WW1. I understand a state senator Lockhart later pushed to have his name added. I don't know the full name of her brother. Thanks, Keith Collier
