Thomas:

Thank you very much for your quick response! And thank you for all of your suggestions.

I am familiar with Find A Grave (I volunteer in my area), and have looked there. Not knowing exactly where he died and there being so many WRIGHT's with the first initial "S", it has been tough. I have never confirmed what his first name or middle name is. Only that he is listed as S B WRIGHT. While it says he was born in 1804 and that he was born in SOUTH CAROLINA, you and I both know that it depends on who gave the information and if the census taker just wrote "ditto" under the PLACE OF BIRTH.

His son's name is listed as SAMUEL BAKER, but there is no JR listed after his name, not that they did that much back then. I guess what I was looking for is that needle in a hay stack. I have no clue what county he could have been born in and was hoping that the WRIGHT name might have been popular in one county more than another. But even then.. how would I ever be able to confirm that who I was looking at was actually my relative? I feel like I will never know this line and wish I would have had my dad take a DNA test before he passed in 1999. But I wasn't "curious" at the time about my heritage. Today I feel obsessed! lol

Again, thank you so much for all of your suggestions! I am thankful that you answered.

Respectfully,

Linda Wright-Wood
California
