I understand the connection with Dennis Bright, yet I still can't make the connection with Hopkins Bright to Albertus and Patience. The Kentucky Kin book does not show either name listed as a child of this couple with the appropriate grandchildren.
Could it be that Hopkins was a brother to Albertus, or did he go by another name?The same is true of Dennis. I found a Hopkins Brite in Meade County, KY, and the will mentions Dennis but does not list all of the children.
Finally, in Shelby County, KY, Daniel Brite married Polly Ford (dau. of Eliash) on Sept. 23, 1812. Dennis married Polly Ford (dau. of Elisha) on the same date. How does all of this fit into the family history?
I can account for Hopkins Bright (born 1808) and some of his descendents, but I am having difficulty tying in Hopkins with his ancestors.Could someone please help?
