Jean, have you checked the Revolutionary War pension files for information. I have found some information regarding bounty land in the Caroline order books. Many of the extant books have been extracted and some larger libraries have copies. I saw a set a few years ago at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. I believe there are also a number of published books that deal with bounty land claims. I lived in Caroline from 1987-1989, and the name Wright is found there. There are many references to the name Wright in the book by Herbert Ridgeway Collins called "History of the Collins Family, Caroline County, Va." Collins has published several other genealogy books dealing with Caroline. One of them is called "Caroline County, Virginia Death Records (1919-1994) from The Caroline Progress, a Weekly Newspaper Published in Bowling Green, Virginia." It contains several pages of Wrights.
