I can find no Ada*/Ida* BRIDGE in the 1850 census, anywhere, but I do find a seven-year-old Ada SIGLER in Decatur Twp., Mifflin Co., PA, only child of Johnston SIGLER (æ 32) and wife Hannah.  In the 1860 census, Ada is not living with Johnson & Hannah, so have Henry & Catharine adopted her?  Both families are prosperous, but Henry much more so.  Or has the enumerator simply erred in giving Adaline surname BRIDGE?

5.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #16 of 30):  Lewistown P.O., Decatur Twp., Mifflin Co., PA, Roll M593_1375, p. 288B, PN 13, 107/103, enumerated 13 Aug 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

______ Catharine 52 F W Keeping house     "
Aschler Susan H 19 F W at home     "
Griminger John S 16 M W at home     "
Catharine's sister, Margaret (STROUP) GRIMMINGER, has a son, John, this age, but he is living with his parents.  This John may be some other kin, or it may mean that Margaret's son has been enumerated twice (it happens).  Listed next to Simon STROUP, Catharine's "half-uncle."
