Subject: ENSLEY et al
Thanks for the Ensley material!I did not know about the Martin Ensley assault and robbery.Very very interesting.
Also, I did not know about William H. Hagan's association with Enoch as a levee commissioner on the Mississippi.
I am still trying to find information on Naomi Davis Ensley Alexander Bland's various children and grandchild.Here is what I have:
By Edward Ensley:
(1) Enoch Ensley
(2) Joanna(h) Ensley
By Henry Alexander:
(1) Jerusha Alexander
(2) Martha Alexander
(3) Parker Alexander
By Arthur Bland:
(1) Joseph Bland
(2) Keziah Kinsey (Kirsey?)- can find nothing except mention in Naomi'swill
Bill, I typed the wrong name for one of Naomi's daughters.....She was ZILPHA J. (P.) CINNY/CIRNEY>?????
(3) Arthur Bland, Jr (perhaps step-son)
Also trying to discover who the second child of Jerusha and Milton Shull was. I know about Martha Jane (of course)--- wife of John William Allen.
The John W. Allen appears to be the husband of Martha Jane Shull. daughter of Jerusha Alexander and Milton Scholl.Bob

It has taken me over 50 years to learn that HOLLIS WRIGHT married SARAH HUMPHREYS.I found this in a published history of Dallas Co., TX, in a biography of their son, JESSE WRIGHT, who left Davidson Co., TN, and settled in Dallas Co., TX.In the same source, there is a biography of the parents of JESSE's wife, MARTHA WRIGHT, the daughter of THOMAS WRIGHT and MARTHA TATE...who also left Davidson Co and settled in Dallas Co., TN.
I do not know the parents of THOMAS and his relationship to the Charles Wright family above.
ANY HELP on the WRIGHTS will be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated.The Mildred Wright book is out of print and I cannot obtain a copy on interlibrary loan.
Oh....do you keep in contact with Mark Alexander in Alabama?
Today is my 73rd birthday!Still hanging on.
