I think we have a connection here!I have been trying to tie my missing links together-- Our Bright connection is the following: Elizabeth Bright (d/o Robert d. 1784 EC CO, VA) & Mary Watts, m. whom we believe, Thomas Loury. In 1823, Elizabeth Loury was named as one of the plaintiffs(along with Samuel F. Bright, Inf.son and heir of Samuel Bright; Josiah Cole & wife Mary) in a large suit over the Bright estate in EC CO-- it appears the land bordered somewhere near Long Creek. The defendant was Thomas Watts. This all goes back to lands that were conveyed in the early-mid 1700's. Our documented line descends from Samuel Bright Loury b. ca 1795 in Norfolk, reportedly the s/o Thomas Loury & Elizabeth Bright.I'll be happy to share what I have & hope you may have some information to close my missing links.
