This article was sent to me by a lady who saw it in a paper a man from Parke Co, In was doing. I don't have any other information on it. I do have this family in my database though. His father was James Turner Bright. 12/6/1899 James E. M. Bright, formerly a well known citizen of Liberty Township, died at this home in Grand Island, Neb., Nov. 16. Mr. Bright was a son of Turner Bright, a sturdy pioneer of Parke County, who throughout his long life was a prominent figure in local history, In 1881 the deceased moved to Nebraska, where he has since resided. His son, Charles M. Bright, is deputy treasurer of Fountain County. The Bright family emigrated from Maryland to Kentucky thence to Parke County (Indiana) early in this century. One of the sisters- Elizabeth- was the mother of John H. Beadle."
