I have a William and Hannah Bright that traveled from England with children, Mary Ann (5), William (4), and Thomas1 (2) from Liverpool, England on the ship Parachute and arrived to Philadelphia, PA on 9 Jul 1830.
I am a decendent of Thomas1.Thomas married Ellen (?) b. PA and had Ellen, Lenard, Rebecca, Thomas2, and Irene and moved to Morris, Jefferson Township, New Jersey approximately 1855.They owned a hotel and many family members lived in the hotel their entire lives.Thomas2 married Minnie (?) and had 4 sons, Thomas3, Charles Darrell, Brighten W, and Elmer K. Bright.
I never knew my great grandfather, CHarles D. Bright.He was married only for a year to Hazel Singleton.They had a son, Frank Singleton Bright, who had three sons.
I would like to know the maiden names of the women who married Thomas1 and Thomas2.Also if you have any further information on Wm and Hannah, I would appreciate any info.
