Re: TO ALL BOTETOURT CO VIRGINIA WRIGHT RESEARCHERS

In Reply to: Re: TO ALL BOTETOURT CO VIRGINIA WRIGHT RESEARCHERS by Mona Walker of 1300

Mona,

I have been to the Archives about 5 times in the years that I went to he Chestnut Ridge Cousins meetings. I so enjoyed going and Sherrie was one of the reasons. She has been most kind and helpful to me. Wish I could get back there but I live in California & no longer want to travel by myself.

My Wright's where my great grandparents James Wright 1815-1893 and Rebecca Renfro Wright 1818-1901. They first appear on the 1840 LCT census. They lived in what is now Belleville. In 1859 they moved west close to Petersburg. We researchers believe James father was Solomon Wright who appears on the 1820, 30 and 40 LCT census. We do not know what happened to him after 1840.

Wanda & I always thought that Jacob Wright & Solomon where related but have never found Solomon connected to any other LCT Wrights. I have taken to collecting every Wright in TN & to NC, VA and SC where ever it leads me. I have been at it for 10 years but Solomon still eludes me.

Say hi to Sherrie for me. I may ask her to help me more in the future as I said I do not think I will get back to TN. Let me know how you are doing & good luck.

Julia
