I love it when newspapers post things from 10, 20 or 50 years ago on that date. This particular obituary is for my husband’s 3rd great-grandfather, Hedger C. Pierce. It was in the “Twenty Years Ago Today” section. I was surprised and excited to find it. It was in the 18 December 1912 edition of the Bridgeton Evening News, Bridgeton, New Jersey. Have you ever had a great find in one of these sections?
Hedger C. Pierce, an old soldier, died at the home of his son, Ward Pierce, 196 Broad street. He had been in poor health for several years. The deceased was a member of the Tenth Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers.
