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.
