Melissa, If you have access to Times Herald (St. Clair County) newspapers, I am curious if you ever come across information or photos about a mystery bridge, Feick Road Bridge over Black River, near what was then called Atkins. Stone abutments remain from this bridge, and this article notes that a bridge was present as early as 1873. http://sites.rootsweb.com/~mistcla2/Old_Towns.htm I am not sure when it was demolished/replaced, although a nearby trunkline bridge was built in 1928 which probably made the Feick Road Bridge redundant. I do not know what type of bridge this was, I've never seen a photo of it, but even a textual description would be a find.
