Burlin S. Wright of Parsons West Virginia Updated July 5, 2001
About Our Family Research
I am searching for the ancestors of James H.P.Wright. The only information I have of from where he came was on his marriage papers in Harrison Co. WV on which he states that he was from Highland County Va. I do not know his father and have been unable to find him its as if he just appeared. He was 27 at the time of his marriage which makes him being born 1837. Any one in Va. or else where having info. on him would be greatly appreciated. I also am looking for the Hymes or Himes,Janes or Jennings,Truslers, Isners, Harris of Barbour & Upshur Co. of West Virginia. The Burlin Isner reunion is held at Nestorville Community Building the first Sunday of July. It is sponsored by Masel Rogers, my Aunt. The John Henry Harris reunion is going to be held at the Wilson family home on Audray Road, about 3 or 4 miles out of Belington, West Virginia the Saturday before Fathers day each year. The Albert Scott Wright reunion is held at the Nestorville Community Building on the Sunday before Memorial Day in May each year. The first Albert Scott Wright reunion was held in 2001, a very fine turn out of about 80 people. My father was Jennings Bryan Wright, he was born and raised in Barbour Co.His resting place is at the Crossroads church a mile or from Nestorville.
