Mr. Wright, I wanted to write to you for some time now, ever since I ready your wife was a descendant of Margaret Tryon. As I mentioned before, there is a moment that our links can collapse altogether because of misspellings, as in the case of the Ringo Family book: Tryon for Joel vs. Tyron for Russell. Also, the Tryon Family book specifically says that Margaret is a daughter of Russell. And some other genealogy source says that Margaret and Mary Jane are sisters. Mary Jane Tryon is my great grandmother (her husband was John Arthur McCalmont, Sr.) and she kept a Bible with family notations. Many years ago one of her daughters, Abbie, gave my family a record of these notations which mention with scribbles that Joel was a brother of Russell. Joel's entry included two children. Mistakenly a Russell Ringo is mentioned and a further note saying that he was born about 1833. A serious search indicates that this son is also named Joel and that his birth date is Jan 14, 1832 (which I consider pretty close to what Abbie says). Then comes the name of a daughter: Margaret Ann. I wanted to tell you this, because this datum had been entererd such a long ago, without the aid of genealogists or internet but because Mary Jane knew about the existence of this first cousin of hers, then I think you should no longer have doubts about your wife's ancestry when it comes to Joel Tryon and his daughter Margaret Ann. As for her grandparents, this is what I have: Jeremiah Tryon was born Apr 29, 1774 in Middletown, Middlesex, CT, and died between 1840 and 1850. He married Mary Ann Helterbrand or Hildebrand Dec 13, 1803, in Adams Co., OH. Mary Ann Helterbrand or Hildebrand was born in 1783 in Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania; she was the daughter of Philip Hildebrand, Sr. born before 1747 in Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, and died about 1810 in Adams Co., OH. He married Elizabeth Lear in 1769. She was the daughter of Jacob Lear, who died about 1795 in Franklin Co., Maryland, and of Mary N. This is all I have with regard to the Hildebrands. Let me know if I can be of further help.
