Description 

Although the article mentions Todd's Fork, that stream was nowhere near this location and would have required a larger bridge. I believe this small bowstring pony crossed Jonahs Run near it's confluence with Caesar's Creek. The 1875 Warren County atlas shows a bridge over the stream at that location.

The area is now submerged under Caesar's Lake and the bridge is presumably gone.
