There seems to be a similar thread of migration of my Bright that I researching. He is Philip Bright born around 1796 in North Carolina, his parents are from NC. He moved to Missouri, first stopping in Kentucky around 1830. His son John Wesley Bright lived briefly in Indianna before heading to Texas in 1869. I am not sure who Philip's parents were or what county he was born in.
Have you seen a Philip in your research? Thank you for any leads that you might be able to supply.Dorothea
