This photo shows the south Beale abutment with the remains of the 1909 bridge still attached.  The mystery has been solved as to where the 1859 Beale Bridge was located across Little River in Oklahoma.  This location is a few miles south of Holdenville, Oklahoma in Hughes County.  The only reason that the 1909 bridge is still attached to the abutments is the fact that Little River changed course in 1948 creating an oxbow, leaving the bridge high and dry and isolated from seeing eyes who might want to tear it down.
