Re: Bruce Witaker's book

In Reply to: Bruce Witaker's book by Kim Knapp of 1447

Bruce Whitaker lives at 661 Old Fort Road, Fairview, NC 28730. He's in the Asheville phone directory. Alex Wright and Emiline Thorpe are not in the index. A possible link that you may pursue is an Alexander, son of Mary Wright and Jeptha Trantham. Jeptha deserted Mary. Mary and Alexander, along with Mary's mother, Chaney (who was Native American) moved in with Mary's brother, John Wright. Alexander was born Sept 30, 1839, in Fairview, NC. There is no further information about him. Bruce does list him in his book as Alexander Wright, not Alexander Trantham. The family stories of Chaney and Mary Wright, and other colorful individuals make the book a pleasure to read, regardless of family ties.
