I am sorry, but I inadvertently and prematurely posted an unfinished message, which you probably already have read.Please ignore the information about Purrington Bright, son of Charles and Mary Bennett Bright.The information about their son, Godfrey, is OK.
To continue, Charles and Mary Bennett had a secondson, Purrington, but unfortunately, I don't have any information about him.
Stephen Tulles Bright, son of Godfrey, was born April 14, 1841 in Smith Co., Mississippi.He married Anne Ross Arlington Oct. 14, 1865; he died Feb. 2,1917 in Columbia Co., Arkansas.
He had one other son that I know of,John S. Bright, born Nov. 3, 1866 and died Oct. 14, 1931in Hope, Arkansas.He married Iduma Aislin and had a daughter, Rosamund, born July 31, 1890 in Pike Co., Arkansas and died in March 13, 1939.I don't have further information about her except that she married William Oza Reece in AK.
That is what I have on this particular Bright line.Do you have information about the earlier generations of Brights in North Carolina, from before Carles Bright?
