A help in finding information is to give more information. By using a calculator you can see that John, age 56, was born in 1854, which means he was alive in 1880. There is a free US Census listed on the Family Search (Latter Day Saints) website which can be searched in various ways. You may find out more information about John and his family or his wife and children. Just type in his full name date of birth (and use + or - 2 and not exact)and the state. Probably he was caucasian (white).You may be able to include other information, but start out looking at all of the John Bright listed....that may be helpful. Also try to give as much information as you have in your query - do you know the name of his father or uncle ? How is he related to you? There are many ways to search for a person.I hope you find lots of information about John Bright and his family.
