I am looking for descendants of Jonathan Wright - the founder of Springboro, Ohio. Springboro will celebrate its bicentennial in 2015 and the planning committee is looking for contact information for descendants.
I am looking for the decendants of Thomas Jefferson Wright born 1863 died after 1920 I am hoping to learn more about the family and why his siblings stopped talking to my line of the family I am really curious about information pertaining to two of his sons Herman and Joseph and his daughter Marjorie Margaret
John W. Wright is my maternal grandfather. He was one of 10 kids. They moved to West Plains, Missouri in the late 1800's. Gramps was born in 1899 and moved to Chicago, Illinois where he married and had three children. When he retired he moved back to West Plains, Mo. and his son Milt bought the farm where his wife lives today. His father was Charles and his mom was Nora Mae Pool also of West Plains, Mo. Nora Mae died in Santa Ana, Ca. I did have the pleasure of meeting her in a nursing home back in 1971 or so in Santa Ana when visiting gramps brother Charles. Another ansester was Conrad Carpenter. I do not know where he fits in the picture. I am looking for any and all family information possible. I have a very large family tree I have located many of my decendants but would like more info. Stories and pictures would be great. I also found some pictures to share. My e-mail is email@example.com and my name is Renee Horwath. At one time (about 30 years ago) I tried this the old fashioned way through book research. I gave all my information to grampas cousin Gladys Garrett who also lived outside West Plains, Mo. Any one who could i would appreciate the help. Thank you Renee Horwath
I am searching for any information on my maternal grandfather's family. His name was Frank P Wright, Jr. His father, (FPW,Sr) was born in 1867 in Brook Haven, Long Island, New York. His father was John A. Wright, born 1819, NY or MA, died 1888. He married Mary O'Flaharty from Ireland and they had four sons: George F Wright, Oliver D. Wright, Henry P Wright, and Frank P Wright.... After the death of Mary in 1877, he married a second time; Hannah or "Anny" W* of East Rockaway....
It is my understanding that prior generations of these Wrights lives in Massachusetts for better than a century.
I have more info and photos that I would be happy to share!
I am looking for any info on my g-grandfather William Wright. He married Rosa Lee Smith, she also used the last name of Mahaffey, reason unknown. Rosa was possibly from Russell County. They had 10 children
Marry (Maggy) 1901
Dorothy 1911 (my grandmother)
I have found in a census that he was in Wise County Virginia in 1920 and do know that Dorothy was born On Sandy Ridge and Willie was born In Tom's Creek both in Wise County. William was a pipe fitter in the mines and ether committed suicide or was shot by his wife or daughter.
If you have info on William or Rosa please let me know I am attempting to do my family tree before I get married to help me understand who I am and where my family is from.
You can email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org or can call me 910-554-7747.
Pauline Carmen Whitehouse / Wright or Louis Australia Wright in AUSTRALIA
My grandmother was adopted out and her biological parents names were Pauline Carmen Whitehouse / Wright or Louis Australia Wright.
Pauline passed away shortly after my grandmothers birth which was in 1924 but im not sure when Louis passed away (or even if he has passed away). I think she was born in Paddington, NSW, Australia but cannot be sure and dont have any DOB details.
Louis served in WW1. I think he was born on 9th October 1883 in Victoria, Australia.
Pauline and Louis married in Bourke, NSW, Australia in 1914.
I believe they had 4 children, Jack Inglis, Colin Edward & Joyce as well as my grandmother who was named Doone Sheila (when adopted her name was changed to Joan Thelma).
Anything you can offer to assist with locating blood relatives of Pauline or Louis would be fantastic as we are hoping to create a family tree but cannot trace back any further than that.
Please help is you can. I'm looking for verification that Nathaniel Wright,( b. 1625, London, England d. in Maryland USA) is the father of NathanielWright (b. 1657 Queen Anne's County, Maryland, d. 1710 same place.) Also looking for verification that he is, in fact, the Nathaniel Wright, b. 1625 to Nathaniel Wright (1581-1643) and Lydia James (1594-1643.) I think he is the link between the two, but I'm not sure.
