Martha SPAKE BRIGHT and Davis BRIGHT were my GGGparents. Davis BRIGHT b.4/17/1822 d.12/20/1863. Martha SPAKE BRIGHT b.11/6/1833 They had three children die in first half of 1859. The three children that survived were Martha S. BRIGHT (MY GGMother) m.Noah Dellinger and both died in Oklahoma, Mary E. BRIGHT b.6/14/1852 m.Thomas S. WALL, and Davis BRIGHT b. 1864 d. 1935 m. Minnie_____. Martha SPAKE BRIGHT later married Zimri WALL. THOMAS S. WALL may have been a son or relative of Zimri WALL. I too am interested in the John Bright that lived next door to Martha SPAKE and Davis BRIGHT. I don't know the parents of Davis BRIGHT. Could Richard Bright (1870 censusin McDowell Co.) be a son, as Lucinda(Lucy) age 77, widow, is living with Richard and wife Charlotte. Could Davis be Richard's brother? Any help would be appreciated.There were quite a number of Bright widows by the 1870 Census. Did Davis Bright die in the War in 1863?
