My great-great grandfather was William J. Bright born in Pasquotank County, NC in 1843. At age 6 he and his sister were orphans.He later shows up in Macan, GA where his daughter, Emma married William Jack Butler, and then in Temple, TX where he died in 1910. Let me know if you think there may be a connection between our families.
