Hi, I'm trying to find information on Martha Utley born in 1808 and died in 1848, of pneumonia at age 40. (Martha was of Dutch Decent) She married William G. Wright, born in 1791 and murdered in 1861 at age 70. They lived in Carlton, Hamilton Co., Texas.
Their son is William Thomas "Billy" Wright b. Sept. 7, 1840 North Carolina. The Wright's had a Wheelwright business in North Carolina which burned down during the Civil War. William Thomas left North Carolina and went to Arkansas and married on Oct. 5, 1865 to Naomi Copeland at Mt. Ida, Montgomery Co., Arkansas. They came to Texas in 1872 with their first two children. They settled in Caldwell County, Texas near Clear Fork and farmed, then moved to Hamilton County, Texas. The Wheelwrights are Methodist. They lived mostly in Carlton, Hamilton County, Texas.
