James F. Wright died Raleigh, Wake County, NC 1937

I am looking for any descendants of James Franklin Wright and Annie H. Simpson. They were married about 1900-1901 and were living in Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina in the 1910 census. She is the daughter of John W. and Augusta Foster Simpson of Pendleton, South Carolina. They are buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. Annie was born 10/7/1876 and died 6/27/1910. James F. Wright was born 9/6/1878 (this may be off by a few years as he is listed as age 48 in 1920 census) either in Georgia or North Carolina.

They had four children but two were dead by 1910. A daughter Helen Wright and a daughter Nell? (not sure on this, the writing is not good on the census and who appears to have died before 1920) is listed with them in the 1910 census. After Annie’s death, James Wright married a Rachel Unknown and in the 1920 census they have listed with Helen born about 1906, a Franklin born about 1917 and a William born 1919. I have not looked at the 1930 census to see if more children were born to James and Rachel.

James Wright died 2/5/1937 and Rachel died 10/27/1943. Rachel is also buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh, NC.

I am especially interested in the parents of James Franklin Wright and if his daughter, Helen Wright, ever married.

I will list all the Wrights in this cemetery, in case someone recognizes any connections. Please contact me if you know anything about these people.

The following are all buried in Section West Branch G 21-23:
Annie H. Wright, Briggs F. Wright, James E. Wright, James F. Wright, James Franklin Wright, Mary T. Wright, Rachel V. Wright, William N. Wright

Buried in Section West Branch G 23-23 is Alice Ball Wright, died 12/21/1999

Other sections in the cemetery: Charles Bruce Wright, Clifton I. Wright, Elizabeth Telfair Wright, Ella Holt Wright, Eva Jones Wright, Frank Miller Wright, Haywood Wright, Helen Amelia Killian Wright, Henley Wright, Jennie Ellis Wright, Louise Bruce Wright, Mary Louise Wright, Nancy Belvin Harden Wright, Ruby Ethra Wright, Sallie E. Wright, Sara Godwin Wright, William B. Wright d. 1938, William B. Wright d 1993, William L. Wright, William T. Wright.
