What is the name of the bridge in Mothershed?

An old bridge off Mothershed Road is known as Mary Daniel Bridge . It is named for a woman who lived in the area in the late 1800s or early 1900s and was thought to be a witch. According to legend, she was driving her baby in a horse-drawn carriage one night. As they crossed the bridge, the horses were spooked and the carriage was tipped into the water below. The baby reportedly drowned and was buried not far from the bridge. Mary survived. When she finally reached her home and reported the accident to her husband, the man began drinking to soothe his grief. Before long he was drunk and, in his anger, he dragged his wife to the bridge and hanged her from the railing before jumping to his death.
