From: Pam or Joe Stone  
I am looking for the family of Joseph Wright, who I believe was born about 1740 
in VA. Joseph is believed to have died about 1790 in Laurens Co., SC. 
The known children of Joseph WRIGHT and Mary ----- were: 
(1) Jane Wright, (born 1774, Laurens Co.?; died 18 Dec 1837, Norcross, Gwinnett 
Co., GA); married 13 Feb 1794, Laurens Co., SC, Matthew BOLTON. 
(2) Mary Wright, (born 1777, Laurens Co.?; died after 1860, Calhoun Co., AL); m. 
Terrell ANDREWS, Sr. 
(3) David Wright, (born 1782 (1791?), Laurens Co., SC; died 16 Aug (11 Aug?) 
1867, > Calhoun Co., AL); m. Rebecca ANDREWS. David and Rebecca reportedly had 
six > sons and four daughters. Their proven children were: 
  (1)George M. Wright, born 1810 in Laurens Co., SC, married Nancy MCCLURKIN, 
  1835 in Talladega Co., AL. George died 1890 in Talledega Co., AL. 
  (2) Martha J. Wright, born 1828, Laurens Co., SC, married Eli BURDEN (Borden), 
  1845 in Benton Co., AL. Martha died, 1909 in Limestone Co., TX. 
  Other likely children of David and Rebecca were: 
  John A. Wright, born 1821, SC, married Hannah JOHNSTON, 1846 in Benton Co., 
  AL. John died before 1870 in Etowah Co., AL; 
  Joseph Wright, born 1823, SC, married, first, Margaret JOHNSTON, second, 
  Elizabeth NUNNELEY; 
  David A. Wright, b. 1825, Laurens Co., SC, married Susanna TEAGUE, 1845, 
  Benton Co., AL, died 1904, Calhoun Co., AL; 
  Rev. James C. Wright, born 1830, SC, died 1909, Calhoun Co., AL; 
  Elizabeth Wright, married 1837, James C. HAMILTON in Benton Co., AL; 
  Nancy Wright, married 1836, A.B. Criswell in Talledega Co., AL; 
  Mary Jane Wright, m. 1840, George W. PHILLIPS in Talledega Co., AL. 
  Other known surnames linked to the Wrights of Benton, Talladega and Calhoun 
  Cos., AL, were BURDEN (Borden, Berden) and WHEELER.
(4) James M. (D?) Wright , (born about 1783, Laurens Co., SC; died 9 May 1873, 
Choctaw Co., AL); married (1) Nancy CLARDY, born 1789, Laurens Co., SC; died 
after 1860, Choctaw Co., AL; dau. of James C. CLARDY, Sr. and Sarah HALL. James 
married (2) 1871, Choctaw Co., AL, Susan E. BAIN ;(Susan's daughter, Cora Ellen 
BAIN, married Jesse Caper Wright, youngest son of Jesse Austin Wright and his 
second wife, Susan M. YOUNG [below.]) 
(5) Joseph Wright, ( born 1788, Laurens Co., SC; died 22 Aug 1853, Tuscaloosa 
Co., AL); married 19 Dec 1812, Rebecca ANDERS (who died 10 Dec 1874, Tuscaloosa 
Co., AL.) 
(6,7,8) Unidentified daughters 
James M. Wright is recorded as living in Fayette County, AL, in 1832, when his 
land grant in the Choctaw Indian Cession of 1832 was recorded in the Tuscaloosa 
Land Record Office. Another grant in 1836 was recorded to a Henry Wright, 
possibly the cousin of James. Apparently, at the same time that James M. Wright 
was in Fayette Co., AL, a James D. Wright was recorded in Tuscaloosa County, AL. 
Whether James M. WRIGHT and James D. WRIGHT are the same person or two different 
people cannot at this time be assessed, as siblings of James emmigrated to that 
Alabama county. James Wright filed a pension application as a Veteran of the War 
of 1812. At the time his second son was born, the only child born in TN, James 
had been discharged at Hazel Green, AL. It is believed that his wife, Nancy, 
during the time of her husband's military service, was perhaps staying with a 
John CLARDY whose residence just over the TN line was recorded at that time. The 
relationship between Nancy Clardy Wright and John CLARDY is unclear; he is not 
her brother, nor is he a recorded son of Michael CLARDY. Yet, apparently, James 
and Nancy named their second son after this man. The parents of Nancy CLARDY, 
James CLARDY, Sr., and Sarah Hall CLARDY died, respectively, 1841, and after 
1850, in Laurens County, SC. James CLARDY, Sr., named his daughter, Nancy 
Wright, in his will dated 1830, proved 1846; other children named of James 
CLARDY and wife, Sarah, named in the will along with their mother, were: Jesse 
E. Clardy, James Clardy, Michael Clardy, heirs of deceased William Clardy, and 
other daughter, Suky Tierce. James CLARDY(Senior) was the son of Michael and 
Judith CLARDY of VA; Michael CLARDY lived in Amelia Co., Virginia, and died in 
Halifax Co., Virginia. 
The children of James M. Wright and Nancy Clardy were: 
  (1) Jesse Austin Wright, born 13 Jan 1812, Laurens County, SC 
  (2) John Clardy Wright, born 1816, TN; married Emily (Crockett?) 
  (3) David W. Wright, born 1818, AL; died Choctaw County, AL; married Rebecca 
  GUINN, daughter of Henry GUINN & Mary Ann FITZGERALD (sister of Elizabeth, 
  (4) William H. Wright, born 1820, AL; married, 1842, Mahala Tyler 
  (5) Ellis Michael Wright, born 1825, AL; married Martha Jane FALLEY 
  (6) Silas Anderson Wright, born 1827, AL; married Mary Jane Ray, dau. of 
  Elijah RAY and Nancy Ann MARTIN; died Choctaw County, AL; Mary Jane RAY was 
  the only known sibling of Robert Andrew RAY. 
  (7) Sarah Caroline Wright, born 1829, AL; married Benjamin BURNS 
  (8) Reubin G. Wright, born 1835, AL; married unknown. 
  (9) Mary H. Jane Wright, born about 1824?, AL; married William MARCH 
  The children of Jesse Austin Wright and Elizabeth GUINN (Bible Record) were: 
  (1) James Clardy Wright, born 1833, AL; married unknown 
  (2) Henry S. Wright, born 1835, AL; married Rebecca Jane GUINN, daughter of 
  Wesley GUINN and his second wife, Jane BLYTHE (and granddaughter of Henry 
  GUINN and Mary Ann FITZGERALD.) 
  (3) Susan Wright (though listed this way in the Bible record, her descendants 
  have her name as Maryann Susan Wright; for some reason, almost all my 
  ancestors seem to have been known by their middle names.) Susan was born in 
  1837, Choctaw Co., AL; married Robert Andrew RAY, son of Elijah RAY and Nancy 
  Ann MARTIN. This is my Wright ancestor. 
  (4) Martha Ann Wright, born 1839, AL; married ----- STAFFORD. 
  (5)Thomas Benton Wright, born 1841, AL; married unknown. 
  (6) Melissa Emeline Wright, born 1842, AL; married unknown. 
  (7) Andrew Jackson Wright, born 1844, AL; married Jennie Louise J. ----- 
  (8) Jesse Caper Wright, born 1849, AL; married Cora Ellen BAIB. 
  Jesse A. and Elizabeth G. Wright are believed to have also had two sons not 
  recorded in the Bible record, who were: 
  (9) Thomas Benjamin "Bennie" Wright, born 1854 
  (10) William Asbury "Berry" Wright, born 1856 
  Jesse A. Wright married a second time in 1860 to Susan M. YOUNG. They had the 
  following children, also recorded in the family Bible: 
  (11) Jefferson Davis Wright, born 1861, AL; married unknown 
  (12) Clarissa Ursula Wright, born 1862, AL; married Thomas Jefferson CAMPBELL 
  (13) Nancy Lillian Wright, born 1865, AL; married Albert F. CREEL 
  (14) Sallie Eleanor Wright, born 1869, AL; married unknown 
  (15) Mary Caroline Wright Wright (the double name is correct), born 1871, AL; 
  married unknown 
  (16) Marcella Pembina Wright, born 1879, AL; married ----- FLYNT.
Also listed in this bible record are two names whose relationship I am unsure 
of: Molly Caroline CRUMBLEY, died 1903 (possibly Mary Caroline Wright above?); 
Maude Rivers SUMRALL, died 1919 
In the Choctaw Co., AL, Inventory Book H, pages 1-8 appears the following court 
document: 20 Feb 1909: Susan M. Wright, widow, petitioner, states that Jessie A. 
Wright died 27 March 1887, intestate. She stated they were married in 1860 and 
that she was currently living in Tunnells, Mississippi. She listed the only 
child of Wesley GUINN and his first wife, Lovenia PRICE, and the eldest grandson 
of Henry GUINN and Mary Ann FITZGERALD of Madison Co., AL. Mary Susanna Wright 
was, I believe, the daughter of either Silas A.Wright and Mary Jane RAYor the 
daughter of David W. Wright and Rebecca GUINN. I am still trying to verify her 
parents.) Floyd died, 1940 in Mobile, AL. 
(4) George Smith Ray, born 1868, Choctaw Co., AL;married Mary Susan GUINN, dau. 
of Frank GUINN and Mary Susanna Wright, and sister of Sallie (above.) George S. 
and Mary S. Guinn Ray were my maternal great- grandparents. George Ray died 
1964, Saraland, Mobile Co., AL. Mary S. G. Ray died 1952, Saraland, AL. 
(5) Laura Estelle Ray, born 1872, Choctaw Co., AL; married James Buchanan 
Thompson. Laura died 1958 in Ensley, AL. 
(6) Robert Hosea Ray, born 1877, Clarke Co., MS; married Estelle Hanson. Robert 
died 1898 in Montrose, AL. 
(7) Vaughn Vegaria (Vaqara?) Ray, born 1881, Choctaw Co., AL; married Margaret 
"Maggie" BRYANT. Vaughn died 1904 in Clarke Co., MS. They had one child, Viola 
Several of the Wrights & Rays in these lines had the middle name "Smith", the 
origin of which is unknown. Also, it should be noted that several descendants 
are investigating a possible link between the Wray/Ray, Borden (Burden), 
Wheeler, and Echkols (Echols) lines of Bedford Co., Franklin Co., and Amherst 
Co., VA. Possibly one of these counties is the birthplace of the patriarch, 
Joseph Wright. 
I am looking for the ancestor of Joseph, his wife's maiden name, and descendants 
of all of these Wright families. I must have a lot more cousins out there.

    7. Amos, b. 1818 
    7. Miriam, d. at 12 years. 
    7. Delia, b. 1825
Note 1: Gideon And Hezekiah moved to PA, then to Augusta County, VA, and finally 
to Rowan County, NC. Surry County was created out of Rowan , and Gideon’s land 
became part of Surry County. Gideon was a Captain, and Hezekiah was a Lieutenant 
in the Kings Army. 
At this point, it becomes very difficult to sort out the family tree. The 
following is extracted from the book: 
Gideon WRIGHT , son of Hezekiah, and Grandson of Hezekiah and Delia Lee Wright, 
(b. 1869), m. 1897 to Inez A. TAYLOR. His father, Hezekiah, was born in Randolph 
County, MO in 1843, m. in 1863 to Anna VANTINE, children: James, Gideon, 
Charley, Lucy, Rosie, Susie, and Marvin. 
Gideon and Inez had: Verner, b. 1899; James, b. 1901; Mary, b. 1904; Loran; b. 
1907; Mae, b. 1909; Eunice, b. 1911; Basil, b. 1913; Carl, b. 1915;Estel, b. 
1917; Audrey, b. 1919; Jemel, b. 1922 
Perhaps someone out there can sort out where these last two fit in the family

have a copy of a will from Deliah (Delilah)'s father, Richard: 
"Deed of Partition Land of Richard Lee Madison County, Kentucky 1 September 1845 

"This Indenture made and entered into this 1st day of September 1845, by and

Robt. E. Lee's father was Henry Lee. His father was also Henry Lee. Robt had an 
uncle Richard Bland Lee, but he died in 1827. Do you have a source for Delila's 
relationship to Bobby E? I'd love to see that tie. 
Thanks, Mark Wright

Job Wright was born about 1757, we think in Southampton County Virginia. He 
married a Sarah NEWTON, we think in VA because she died 27 April 1811 in 
Mecklenburg County,VA according to their son's Bible, which is still in the 
family. Job, sons Newton and John then moved to Rutherford County North Carolina 
with their wives and children after 1813 when Newton came back from War of 1812. 
Shortly before they left, Newton married SARAH FARMER. Job had a sister, Salley, 
who married a "G" and lived in Georgia. We have Job's line all the way to the 
present on Newton and Jack.

I am not researching the WRIGHT name (at least not never know who may 
eventually turn up in your family :-)), but while researching my various 
families who migrated to Montgomery Co., IL from other areas, I came across a 
series of articles with a wealth of information for not only me but probably 
many others. I pass this info on as often as possible when I see queries for 
some of these surnames on the lists. The WRIGHT information is from: 
Walter R. Sanders, "Settlers in Montgomery County, Illinois Before 1840", NGSQ , 
Vols. XXXIX-XL (Spring, 1951-Fall, 1952), p. 13. LDS #0001288 This is a long 
alphabetical list of names, many with birthdates, and the areas they were in 
BEFORE coming to Montgomery Co., IL. Any with an * means they were found AFTER 
Montgomery Co. in another county (possibly adjoining). 
Charles WRIGHT (b. 1791 NC) 
Henry WRIGHT (b. 1793; d. Aug 14, 1843) 
Nathaniel WRIGHT (b. 1808, MA) 
Joseph WRIGHT (b. Apr 20, 1783 SC; to Warren Co., KY) 
W. W. WRIGHT (b. Concord, MA) 
Margaret WRIGHT 

Joel WRIGHT (b. Oct 10, 1792, Hanover, NH; moved to Boston) 
Mr. and Mrs. Sanders were apparently both professional genealogists, residing in 
Litchfield, Montgomery Co., IL, and he was head of the Social Science Department 
at Litchfield High School (at least at the time of printing of these articles). 
They did extensive research on Montgomery Co. (probably where many of their 
ancestors settled) and I have run across several publications written by him 
which have been most helpful. I do not know if either are still living. 
Hope this may help someone find a missing WRIGHT.

    NE., Dan and Mary homesteaded in S. Dak.
    I just learned this weekend from an older relative that my Wm. (KRONK) 
    WRIGHT may have been an indentured person. He apparently ran away from his 
    owner and changed the name to WRIGHT to prevent detection.
Maybe these little bits will help someone recognize this as their family also.
