My son's great grandfather x5 was Philip Bright born in NC in 1796 or there abouts according to census. He married a Eliza around 1828-33 possibly in Kentucky, as she was from KY. They then moved to SE part of Missouri where Philip and Eliza were farmers and then died and are buried in Stoddard County. Philip died in 1851 and Eliza around 1860.
One of Philip's and Eliza son's, John Wesley Bright,moved him and his family to Texas in 1869 where the family has grown and settled at.
I am trying to find Philip's birth place in NC and parents or a maiden name of Eliza.
Direct line is:Phillip 1796, John Wesley 1833,(MO or KY) Jackson, 1864 (Illinois) Edward SR., 1901 (TX) Edward Jr. 1923 (TX) David 1956 (NM) Eric 1980 (CA)
