I was hoping someone in the Bridgeport, Paradise, or East Mound area might have some information on the Wright's, Solomon's, Price or Pierce families that lived in that area between the late 1800's to the 1950's. My great grandparents were David A Wright and Julia Ann Soloman Wright. Julia was David's second wife and they had three sons, two who died in early childhood. The youngest son was my grandfather, Edward Thomas Wright. I found Julia and Edward Wright on the 1900 Census in Wise Co. I was told that David A Wright died in the 1890's, however I do not know where he or the two little boys, who we believe were named John and Sam, died at or where they were buried. My grandfather, Edward Thomas Wright, married Amanda Myrtle Price, daughter of John Thomas Price and Cynthia Ann Weiss. They married c 1915 in the Paradise, Tx area. I also believe that Solomon Pierce was Julia Ann Solomon Wright's brother-in-law. That's whose home I found her living in, in the 1900 census. Julia Ann Solomon Wright died in 1912. I have been unable to find where she is buried. If any one has any information or suggestions where I could find this information please contact me. Thank you for your help!
