Why is there no "e" after the "g" in Bridgman?  And what's with all the Hirams?

I knew a wonderful black fella name Hiram. He ran Hirams BBQ on San Jose Boulervard in Jacksonville Florida out of an old wooden shed that he used to keep lawn mowers in. Had a couple of tables and a screen porch on the front. The smoke from the cookers would come out of the restaurant, flow along the ceiling over your head, and then run out the screen on the front of the building. After many years of business it dried the wood out and left so much soot on teh ceiling that it finally burned down. He tried to re-open in a metal shed but the locan government would not let him. Had a hand painted sign out front that read "Put a little South in your Mouth". I sure miss that old fella!
