In Reply to: Emma Wrightsman m. James Kerr by Lois Kerr-Heffel of 50

Although I know very little about the Indiana Wrightsmans...I have searched Census data there and have the following:
1880 Census Index...Henry Co. Blue River Twp...Vol.15. Ed 6 Sheet 11 or 17

John Wrightsman...40...born Ind.
Wife Emma...born N.J. (?)
Children: Emma.....16
Sarah A 14
Letilia E.L. 12
James W. 10
Lewis 7
Perle 10 mos.
I believe this also gave a John Wrightsman
in the home....age 25...relationship not reported.

This 16 yr. old Emma is probably the one you are looking for. So far I have not really established which line this is.
My own 4th greatgrandfather was a John Wrightsman....not this line.

I believe there is a Dian Wrightsman (not Diane Wrightsman) on this forum looking for info on a Harold Wrightsman...she lists some family given names that might be connected...i.e. Perle and Lewis. Suggest you e.mail her if you have not already done so. Hope this is of some interest and some help. There is a Wrightsman webpage...this forum has it listed with Diane Wrightsman's query. This explains that we believe there is a connection between NC Wrightsmans and Virginia far cannot prove it. Many of the Indiana group may descend from the NC folks.
