I would like to hear more about your William T. BRIGHT. My husband's 3rd great grandfather was William T. BRIGHT b. abt. 1818 in , Habersham Co., GA according to his Civil War pension papers. He was 43 years old when he joined. The earliest I can find him in the census in 1840 in Madison Co., IL. He was married in 1837 to Polly JACOBS in Madison CO., IL. Would like to hear from anyone that might know or have a connection.. Thank you,.
