In Reply to: John Mefford 1834 by Ellen Liles of 359

Ellen: In the 1870 Champaign Co. IL census, there was a H.C. Wright listed with w/Maria Anna (Mifford) Wright. They were married in 1868 Champaign Co. IL & were living with a Jacob & Sarah Jane (Wright) Clauson/Clawson. Sarah Jane was H. C's (Henley Charles) sister. By 1896, H. C was living in Neodesha, KS, as was his sister who was then married to a Millard F. Martin. I believe your John Mefford is related (and possibly the father) of Anna Mifford Wright.

Do you know of any Wright connection in your family? My Wrights were from VA to IN to IL & then Sarah Jane & H. C. down to MO & KS. H. C. moved up to Kingsbury Co. SD by 1900 but his wife there was named Louie. Evidently, Anna Mifford Wright died in KS.

There was also a Wm Right who married an Eliza Mifford in 1828, Marion Co. IL but I don't know Wm's connection to my Wrights yet.

I have more info if you think this Anna is related to your John.
