Re: Wright family

In Reply to: Re: Wright family by Peyton Carter of 776

Since posting my original message, I have found a few of the children of my Reuben Wright who married Anna Gilbert in 1798, Sussex Co. VA. It might not be the same Reubin as discussed here though. My Reuben went with the Wrights of Brunswick Co. VA to Greene Co. OH to help establish the M-E denomination there. After a few years, Reuben & Anna went on to IN & were in Hancock Co. IN in 1840 & Wayne Co. IN in 1850 where Reuben was a M-E minister in Knightstown, IN (Henry Co). They had son, James Gilbert who married Lucinda McComas in Rush Co. IN 1830, Geo W. who married Elizabeth (I think her maiden name was Gwin/Guin/Gwynn)& lived in Logan Co. OH & Noble Co. IN before dying in LaGrange Co. IN & dau, Margaret who married Thos B. Miller & lived her life in Hancock Co. IN. Another son was David G. Wright who married a Neibarger/Nibarger in Greene Co OH & lived in Hancock Co. IN in 1840-50 but doesn't appear in the 1860 census. I'm sure there are more children of Reuben & Ann's but these are all I've been able to identify.
