Your William is probably related to the ones in our family line (if he lived in eastern IN), but he is not a descendant that I would be tracking.Sorry!
I am looking for descendants of three Bright lines: Abner (b. 1853 Randolph Co. IN) & Mary Bright; died 1924 in Randolph Co., IN. George H. (b. 1846 in IN) & Mary A. Bright; died 1928 in Wayne Co., IN. James Nelson (b. ca. 1828 in NC) & Sarah Ann Bright. He died after 1880 either in Randolph Co. or in Iowa.
There are some William Brights who ARE descendants,and Iam tracking them (because they are descendants of Abner, George, or James.They are: William R. Bright, b. about 1876 in IN; he died after 1930 in Oregon and might not have had any children. William Pearl Bright, b. 1885 in (prob. Randolph Co.) IN, d. 1964 Randolph Co., IN. William Evant? Bright, b. 1875 in (prob. Randolph Co.) IN, d. bet. 1910-1928 prob. IN.
