Jan, my ggg grandfather Jasper Bright (abt. 1790, NC? -- 1849, Blount Co., TN) married Polly Key (abt. 1795 -- bef. 1850? Blount Co.) in Blount Co. on April 16, 1816. Their children were James Edgar, Bartley, and an unknown son and daughter. Many of the Brights in Loudon Co. descend from Bartley. I descend from James Edgar, who married Polly Ann Wayman. They moved from Blount Co. to Monroe Co. to Loudon Co. to McMinn Co., where I was born and raised and now live. Any connection?
