BRIDGETON

BRIDGETON was a division of Nockamixon Township and became a township in 1890. 

Named for the arch and truss wooden bridge over the river between Upper Black Eddy, PA., and Milford, NJ - the last one to remain intact.2


Nockamixon, the township, may be described as lying in northeastern Bucks County, touching Delaware River at the Narrows, bounded northwest by Springfield and Durham Townships, southeast by Tinicum Township,, southwest by Haycock Township.  Haycock Run and Tohickon Creek form the southwest boundary line.  When Bridgeton Township was raised in 1890, Nockamixon lost a third of its territory. 

Keep in mnd that Bridgeton was formed out of Nockamixon in 1890 so any research prior to 1890 would be found under Nockamixon Township.

A case of small pox was reported in Williams Township and the victim was sent to the Northampton County Poorhouse for treatment.  William Witman of Nockamixon, PA, the captain of a boat who arrived at Uhler's lime kiln from Frenchtown, reported feeling ill.  A doctor later diagnosed him with small pox.
