John Bright and Betsey Bright were first cousins.John was the son of George Adam Bright and Betsey was the d/o his brother Wendel Bright.Both George and Wendel are on the the deed books of Augusta County, Va., settling in Beverly Manor, near, if not in the Middlebrook area of Augusta County.
I notice that Wendel and and his son-in-law Wendel Grove bought land from the same person, Thomas and Isabel Steel, on the same day, August 20, 1771, as found on the deed books of Augusta County.Evidently, Windel Grove and Betsey Bright, were married before coming to Augusta County, possibly in York Co., Pa.
Wendel Bright is on record as pulling a tooth for a Moriavian circuit minister.This leads me to understand why he returned east to the town of Alexandria, Va., possibly to set up a practive of dentistry, which in that day, would be no more than relieving the pain of toothaches, simply by extraction, although, I remember seeing wooden dentures when visiting the home of George Washington at Mt. Vernon, and wondered if Wendel Bright may have had any practice in that line.
To make a long story short, Wendall Bright named his son-in-law Wendel Graff as husband of his daughter Anna Elizabeth, in his will of December 01, 1784, found on record in the court house at Fairfax, Va.
