Re: WRIGHT, Benjamin, Wm.R., Byrd. Mary, Elizabeth, Israel
Hi: We don't know anything about Thomas Jefferson Wright. Or sons James and "Curly" John Wright, because they left home and disappeared.They were probably born right after Israel Harrison Wright (my line) who was born 16 Feb 1815.William Riley b. 1817 married Lydia Rose Snow.Hugh b. 1819 died in Mexican War. Mary 1820 m. Thomas Welborn, Elizabeth b. 1821 m.Leonard Helms, Byrd S. b. 1825 never married, Ben Franklin b. 14 Apr 1829.Israel, Hugh, and Byrd were named after their maternal uncles.No proof that TJ came from Kenton County KY which didn't become a county until 1840 and there weren't many Wright families there until about 1900.
TJ and Annie, Israel, Byrd and Ben moved to Washington Territory in 1853.Linda Doty
