Carolyn, I'm afraid that is about I know about Jasper Bright or his family. The Bright people I know say our Brights came from NC. Also, Jasper lived close to Michael Bright in Blount Co. and sold him land there on March 17, 1816. Jasper's estate was settled by his sons Bartley and Edgar on May 3, 1849, so I assume Jasper died that year. Jasper also fought in the War of 1812. Let me know if you come up with anything.
