I, too, am researching WRIGHTs in Erath Co TX.
William M. WRIGHT, b c1820 Lincoln Co, TENN. Lived Madison and Jackson Cos, ALA before moving to Texas about 1870. He md 1848 Musadora BEAN in Franklin Co TN. They had seven children. William M Wright died in Bunyan, Erath Co TX in July 1901. Burial place is not known, but probably in or near Bunyan.
Eldest dau, Elizabeth "Bettie" married to Floid B. BOSTICK; lived Bunyan, Erath Co. Reared 15 children.
David WRIGHT, son of William M., md to Elizabeth SWAIM; lived Bunyan, Erath Co TX.
David and Eliz. were parents of daughters
Emma (think she is the Emma M. who md. J.W. DAVENPORT in Erath Co) in 1895)
Mattie B. - and Georgie E. Wright. Info needed on these daughters.
William M. WRIGHT, only known son of David and Elizabeth WRIGHT, was born June 1882; died 9 Jan 1942; bd New Dublin Cemetery. Md. 1904 to Ida May PARKS.
Would like to correspond with his descendants.
Also seeking info on William Henry WRIGHT, (s/o William M WRIGHT c1820-1901) who md. Mary S. CORBELL in August 1894, Erath Co. She was born March 1874, d/o Mrs. Emily and (unknown) CORBELL.
Daughters Wilmoth and Edna. I have portraits of this family, which I would be happy to share. William Henry WRIGHT may have had another dau, Willie May, by a previous (or later) marriage.
Does anyone know anything about this family? Would also like to know more of ancestry of both William M. (c1820-1901) and of Silas WRIGHT (b1823). Please e-mail me at Norma852Wr@aol.com after May 10. Many thanks for any help. Norma G. WRIGHT
