Long Ford Bridge
Posted May 1, 2013, by Christine McCombs (Massey) (delanymom87 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Just got off the phone yesterday with my 1st cousin and she said my great grandfather was worthless and only held one job in his life. That job was with the WPA building Longford Bridge. I had to look up the bridge to verify her story. She is telling the truth.the bridge did exist and was built during the time period of which she was alive and he was alive. Neat story.
