I have little information about Thomas. He is an ancestor of my husband. He married an Ann (from KY?)and had two children, living in Sugar Creek, Clinton, IN: James (married Mary Hopkins)and John (married Cynthia Alley from Decatur Co.and a Lucy). Parents were supposedly from England. Ann died before 1880, Thomas after. I would love to get a birthplace/date or parental info. for him. Thanks for what you're doing!

You have long string of correspondence about when they may have left what is now Bulgaria but not about when they first appear in Essex with the Wright surname.

from Va. James H. Wright was his son and was a POW in Libby prison in Andersonville. He married at the age of 51 to Rose Etta Saxton.Are you looking at this line also?

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor William Robert Wright, b.1828 in New York, his father was born in Vermont, mother born in New York, and his wife's name was Lari
Interested in the WRIGHT Surname Project yes
Comments:
My brother did a DNA test last June, in an effort to find information about our father's biological line. The names that came up as exact matches for the 25 marker were: William Robert Wright (Y37), Phillip Wright (Y67), Gordon Eugene Wright (Y37) and Daniel L. Wright (Y37). My father passed away in 2004, so we do not have his direct DNA to use. It is a complicated situation full of mystery. We believe my father was adopted, but the mother he knew was William Robert Wright's granddaughter, Vivian Jennie Washburn (daughter of Jennie Wright)- and my brother has several matches for the Wright family. So, it would seem that even though my father may have been adopted by Vivian and her husband, they may have indeed been related! Other matches include Michael Eugene Wright (Y37), Dion E. Wright, William Arthur Wright III, and Errol Joseph Wright (but that was the 12 marker match.

If anyone has any info about any of these Wrights, included if and how they are related to one another, I would be SO very grateful to have some light shed on this!!

I will ask my brother if he is willing to share anything further in regard to his results, if that would be helpful.

Thank you for any help anyone can offer!

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor Nathan Wright (died 1870 in GA?)
Comments:
I am a direct male descendant of a James Oliver Wright of TX who died in the Civil War. From research online, I am assuming that his father was a Nathan Wright 1793-1870 who lived in GA. However, there seems to be some confusion about Nathan's father (supposedly a William Wright 1748-1827). I have a feeling that people are possibly getting several Nathans and Williams mixed up in their research.

I'd like to know who my earliest known ancestor is, and whether they were English or Scotch-Irish. I hope to do a DNA test soon.

Comments:
Solomon G. Wright was an uncle of one of my 3rd great grandmothers. Unfortunately, we don't know exactly how he was related. He was born 28 Sep 1807, Lake Pleasant, NY, and died 08 Jun 1893, New Albion, NY. He married Sally Sarah (Sarah Sally) Sikes (Sykes) on 01 Jan 1828. There was a daughter named Fanny Ann and a son named Jacob Franklin. If he's popped up on anybody's genealogy radar, I'm looking for parents and siblings names for both him and his wife so I can find the "aunt & uncle" connection to my 3rd g'g'mother. Thank you very much.

David's paternal grandmother said her husband James Arthur Wright was part Native American. I'm hoping that the DNA testing (when it's complete) can shed some light on this.

My daddy was Henry Earwood, his daddy was George Milton Earwood that married Josie Wright. I don't know much except she had a sister named Lillie that lived in Texas.Lillie and Josie's mother lived there when she died but I have no names: Milton and Josie married in 1912, she gave birth to 2 boys Elmer Earwood & Henry Earwood that was born in 1915 his mother died right after he was born so he never knew anything about who his mothers parents were. If anyone can help we would appreciate it

I would be interested in what the cost of the DNA testing would be for my husband. I have followed the family name from New Hampshire to New York to Georgia to Calif to my husband. I am very excited to see that you have this website. My maiden name Morrison shows that we originated in Scotland on the Isle of Lewis. It would be fun to know where my husbands family originated. I found out by chance that both my mother and father's people came through Londonderry Ireland

Interested in the WRIGHT Surname Project I have an interest.
Comments:
My great grandmother was Roda Wright. She married Thomas Ezell sometime in the late 1800's. They had a son in 1889 and his name was Lloyd. Lloyd was in the U.S. Army and met my grandmother here on Long Island, NY and had my mother. He was well into his forties when he had my mother with my grandmother. That was in the late 1930's. Well, not sure if I can help with my DNA but maybe this other information can. Thanks, Shawn

I'll have to get back to you. I had a great aunt who did EXTENSIVE research on ALL our family.Right back to the earliest periods in Scotland/England/1400's. My Wright family as far back as I am to recollect right now grew up and lived in or near Covington,GA. My grandfather,Hugh E. Wright grew up in Starrville,GA,just south of Covington.
I will scrutinize the Wright lineage as far back as she has gone and transfer all to you. Might answer somebody's questions and open closed doors.

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor Nathaniel Wright 1799-1845 Newfoundland
Comments:
Huge Brick Wall: Seeking the parents/origins of Nathaniel Wright, m. to Hannah Allen in Greenspond, Bonavista, Newfoundland. I have all of his descendents, but have no idea of his ancestry. There is family provenance from my great grandmother,Priscilla Manuel nee Wright, Nathaniel's grandaughter, that there was a connection to the Milton Wright family, and my sister recalls as a child, when Priscilla turned blind, reading letters to her from one of the brothers, which she kept stored away in a special box. Unfortunately, there's no trace of Nathaniel's origins, even whether he was born there. He and Hannah died within a year of each other leaving young children behind. While the Island of PEI is full of Wrights, none of them correspond to my Nathaniel. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated as I would like to prove/disprove this provenance, which I grew up with.

Comments:
My 4th gr grandparents were Rev. Reuben Wright & w/Joannah (Gilbert) Wright. This couple were both b in 1779, VA. Joannah is from the Gilberts of Surry/Sussex Co. VA. The DNA sample from a desc of Reuben (kit #99289)was a match to the Wrights of Lunenburg Co. VA, who, I believe, are related to the Wrights of Brunswick Co. Va. Reuben & Jo went to Greene Co. OH in about 1812 & then on west to IN where they were early settlers in Henry/Hancock/Wayne Co. They are in the 1840 Hancock Co. IN census & the 1850 Wayne Co. IN census. Reuben died in 1856 & had been a co-pastor of the Methodist-Episcopal Church in Knightstown, IN. I only have the names of 3 of their children: David G. (believe that to be Garrett/Gerrard. He married Sarah Neibarger), James Gilbert (my line, marr Lucinda McComas)& Margaret (marr Thos B. Miller). David & Margaret & their families lived in Hancock Co. IN. James & Lucinda went over to Jasper Co. IL in about 1840, where he was a circuit-rider minister.

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor Richard Wright Sr.(1730-1784)
Interested in the WRIGHT Surname Project Yesssss!
Comments:
I believe that I get back to Richard Wright Sr.(1730-1784) of Rowan Co, NC. Much of our family documentation has come from multi-generational family bibles. There's nothing like modern DNA technology though! I'd be willing to participate.

I live about 15-20 miles north of where William R. Wright(1761-1838) is buried. He was a Revolutionary War soldier. He was among the first to settle in Washington County, Indiana Territory in 1809.

My son Michael Jacob Wright(b 2006) may be the only direct male descendant to carry on our Wright name going back to William Sherman Wright(b 1866). My grandfathers and their sons have been producing a lot of girls!

Here's what I have in my relatively short time of being obsessed with my Wright ancestry. If someone has conflicting info or can fill in a blank, let me know.

This Wright DNA project is a monumental undertaking. Keep up the good work Wrights!

Comments:
Hi..Donna, from Monterey, Ca. Have been researching the line, beginning with Henry Wright, M Anna Whitebread (1448). We hail from Kelvedon Hatch, Essex England. Line continues through Nathaniel Wright, M. Lydia James (1612), 2nd M. (Mary Dell,1624) Line through Nathaniel and Lydia.

For those interested in the Orville/Wilbur Wright lineage:
John Wright (1548) and Emfell Lindsell(1548): Their 1st child John(1569) (m.1594) Marthell Castell and through their son Samuel Wright (1591-1686) the line to Milton Wright, father of Orville and Wilbur Wright is established.
Their 2nd son, Nathaniel (1581 - 1643) (m 1612 Lydia James) had Samuel Wright 1614-1655, (m. Margaret 1606-1681)
...Anyway, folks, that's a start. If any of the above sounds familiar, email me with questions or info.
Thanks, Donna

George Wright 1770-1836 married to Sabra Pate 1775-14846 were my great, great, great grandparents. My grandparents were Pleasant Wright and Frances Caroline Wright who were cousins before marriage. I just started our family tree and am not really good at this yet but very interested. The Wrights were my mothers family. My brother recently took the DNA test for our fathers side of the family and I am thinking I will have them run his for our mothers as well. My mothers grandfather's name was George Washington Wright. They were from North Carolina and also South Carolina.

Tenn and ended in the north part which is Putnam Co. Tenn. now. The old homeplace of John Jointer and family was located at Algood. 100 ac. and the old home is still standing and I have been there several times.

Linda,
Checking on the results of my kit (#19030) I wondered about the value in the table for allele #25 is says 16 with an allele #26 of 17. I was thinking the 16 in the allele #25 spot is a typo and the 17 accidently was put in the allele #26 spot (which shouldn't have a value at all!) Could you look into it and see if it is right or wrong in the table? If it is right, I wondered what it means. Thanks, Mike

Comments:
I have a William Wright in Wilson County TN at least around the 1844-1847 period, he is the administrator of the estate of John Baker, who died there in 1844...I believe this William Wright could be the son in law or brother in law of this John Baker, more likely a son in law since John was 96 when he died in 1844...John Baker also had a son Jeremiah who was in Gallatin County IL in 1847...I also believe Nancy Baker Coats m to Rev William Coats of Callaway County MO is a daughter of this John Baker...William Wright might have been married to a sister maybe a Mary or Rachel? Just guesses on that...

There is also at least a Charles, Jospeh, John and I think an Isaac Wright in Wilson County TN during this same time period...

Anyone familiar with this family?

I really wouldn't know what line to search for with my Wright father or uncles. Walter clearly must have been a middle name for my ggrandfather, and though I know his father's name was Frank, it does little to help me, or you I would think. The only thing I know for sure was that my Wrights lived in NC and SC. I would be glad to do a DNA test on my dad or an uncle if you'd like though. Sincerely, Toni Wright Sutton

On my maternal side my earliest Wright ancestor is my ggggrandfather, Asa L. Wright, born abt 1818 in GA, and died in the 1870's in either northern MS or Shelby Co., Memphis, TN. His first marriage is unknown, and his second was Racheal Dulaney.
Asa's son Fidiman/Riderman F. Wright was born abt 1837 in AL, and died abt 1890 probably in Memphis, TN. His first wife was Mary Bullard, probably in/near Chickasaw Co., MS.
Fidiman's son was George Will Wright, born 18 Oct 1861 in MS, and died 11 July 1929 in Memphis, TN. He Married Emma Gabriel, b. 19 May 1862 and d. 19 June 1940, both in Memphis, TN.
George W. Wright's daughter was Birdie Emma Wright, 19 Aug 1903 - 18 Oct 1975, both in Memphis, TN. She married Michael Louis Raffo Sr., 20 May 1897 - 21 Sept 1970, both in Memphis, TN.
Their daughter was Bette Marie Raffo, 15 Feb 1927 - 26 May 1985, both in Memphis, TN. She married Coy Wesley Stanfill, 1 Jan 1923 - 13 Aug 1962, both in western TN.
I am searching for any info on the ancestors and descendants of Asa L. Wright. My Family Home Page is at Genealogy.com under Mike-Stanfill.

I am just beginning my WRIGHT branch of my family tree. MY gg-grqandmother was ELIZABETH JANE WRIGHT-REYNOLDS. She was married to REUBEN REYNOLDS on 3-18-1847 in Madison County Illinois.
Elizabeth lists her birthplace as Kentucky and her father's as Virginia and her mother's as North Carolina. This information is from Illinois Census records.

I have no other infiormation about her lifr before she married. Parents and any siblings are unknown to me, at this time.

Hopefully someone may recognise Elizabeth and we can share what little that I have about this family. Please contact me at bobnregi@verizon.net

Many Thanks,

Comments:
I descend through Francis Wright's oldest son Benjamin and Benjamin's daughter Susannah who married John Massie. Having read the notes attached to Francis Wright, I think the date of Benjamin's birth needs to be changed from "before 1745" since the will clearly states he was the "oldest son" of Francis Wright. In the notes, it appears that Issac is the oldest. Thank you.

Comments:
The Y-DNA test I took recently has proven that the genealogy
papers handed down in my family that I got from relatives
in Tennessee 20 years ago was incorrect and connected us to
the wrong line of Wrights in North Carolina, when actually
they were from another line of Wrights in Virginia. I've
read that you can't trust the internet genealogy information,
well I found out you can't even trust old family genealogy
papers either. So I highly recommend these DNA tests to
everyone who doesn't have documented proof, not family trees
nor family rumors, they are not documented proof of anything.

T.J. Wright is my Grandfather, and I would like to present him with a detailed record of the Wright surname in August 2005. I have seen the "largest" family reunion on TV, and I would like to surpass that claim someday. Drop me a line, I would love to learn more about my/OUR family history. By the way, I'm not sure who is responsible for the URL above, but I thank them for all the hard work. The world may change, but family will always be...family no matter how distant.

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor James b.1721 m.1744 Mary Stackhouse
Interested in the WRIGHT Surname Project Yes
Comments:
Hi! I am hoping to talk my brothers into participating in the DNA project!
My "Brick Wall" has turned out to James b. 1721 we believe in bristol , Bucks Cty, PA or in Burlington Cty NJ He and Mary Stackhouse had a son Joshua who married Sarah Mitchell in NJ. Yheir son Joshua married Bathsheba Rue and their son James Monroe married Maria Watson who died either in childbirth or shortly after my great grandfather Travers Rock Wright was born. James and little TR moved west to Illinois where he had a sister Elizabeth married to Samuel Cabeen. James remarried and had 2 more children Thaddeus and Gazelle by Virginia Hanby. TR married Kate Pattison whose mother Josephine Cushman was descended from the Mayflower Cushmans, Allertons, Howells, Tillys, Soules and several other Mayflower families. Kate gave birth to my Grandfather Robert Burns Wright in 1898. He had 2 younger sisters Louise Gazelle who never married and Marian Kate who married and had 1 son Arthur Wright Jarman, he had 5 children. Grandpa had 2 children, my Dad Robert Wayne who married Barbara Caroline McKenrick and had 7 children. His sister Dolores mever married. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Grandpa worked on the Genealogy back in the 50's and 60's but never got further than James and Mary in Buck Cty. I'm still stuck all these years later in the same spot.

Earliest known WRIGHT ancestor David W or Daniel W
Interested in the WRIGHT Surname Project Yes
Comments:
My father, Charles Edwin Wright, was one of four sons - all born in Connecticut. Two of his brothers, Ernest W and Walter R, fathered sons who are now believed to be living in California. Richard, the son of Walter, probably in his seventies, was born in CT. William, the son of Ernest, was also born in CT. He is probably in his late his late fifties. Richard and William are my only known male descendants. I am not presently able to locate them.

Rufus Alden Wright, father to Charles, Walter & Ernest, was born in Reedy, WV in 1875. He had a sister,Rosie A, who was about two years younger. The parents of Rufus and Rosie, were David W/Daniel W Wright(noted above) and Minerva A Cain Wright. They were married in Jackson County in 1774. They are found in Reedy on the 1880 Census and thereafter disappeared. Since David/Daniel and Minerva were born early 1850's, I would estimate the parents of Rufus and Rosie to have been born in the mid 1820s.

One other remote possibility occurs to me. Rufus and his first wife (parents of Charles, Ernest & Walter) ended their marriage in the 1920s. There is strong evidence that Rufus went to Texas--probably to the Dallas area. It is possible that he may have changed his name. I do not know whether he remarried but, if he did there may be another male link of which I am unaware.

My dad's name is Kenneth Richard Wright b. 1913 Hastings, Neb. He appears to be related to the above & the Quaker Wrights in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. I say "appears" because my research is unclear just yet; I began when I found listed in my grandfather Charles Wright's (d. 1978) old Bible a descendancy from Thomas Wright, b. 1780s in North Carolina, listing names of descendants that I had never heard of. And so I was off and running!

My dad is almost 91 now, and though I haven't spoken to him yet I believe he would be thrilled to participate in the DNA project. Before I started digging, he knew nothing whatsover about the Wright line or where it had come from.
