The following deed was recorded in Pike County, Missouri, at Deed Book G, page 93, even though it relates to property of William Wright located in Orange County and Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Since it lists the family of William and Frances Wright, I thought others might find it of interest in their research. For convenience of reference, I will post this on the Wright, Orange, and Spotsylvania lists.
