Hi Again Don- I just found this today, five years later! But in regards to your comment on the different spellings, according to my research, I would disregard that the type of spelling has anything to do with their religion. My g,g,grand aunt Maria Eliza WRIGHT NEWBERRY/NEWBURY(Curtis Daniel) was a staunch Baptist. In Sangamon Co., IL their name is spelled NEWBERRY, in the land records, census records, their marriage record & his employment record at the Springfield Woolen factory. Also on my g,g,grandfather's probate papers, as Curtis was appointed to help in the administration of David WRIGHT's estate. But when they moved to Adair Co.,IA the spelling of their name got changed to NEWBURY & most descendants use that spelling now. So follow up on both spellings, it could well be the same family.
