Thanks, again

all the other wright's are too new to recognize.

I did find one at Find A Grave Memorial# 9075267 for Philbird Wright [married Mary Sears], but it appears that Jo Bohony is unreachable. Philbird [actually Philbert in father's will] is he's my 3rd GGF's last son.

Thanks ever so much. I promise to give the respect and honor our ancestors are due. Without them, I may not have been here :)

Thank you!
I had no idea you would transfer Philbert Wright 1802 to me. I will take care of it and honor his memory and that of his family with continued research.

Thank you SO much.

Philbert Wright [1802-1865]

Geraldine – hello. Thank you for having the memorial for Philbert Wright - 1802-1865.

Per my correspondence back several years ago, sadly, I’m ‘revisiting’ Philbert Wright above.

I still believe that I am related to him, but without proof – having a bit of a time, so trying another tactic.

It appears there are few headstones or markers in the Frey Cemetery. Can you share with me how you were able to determine that Philbert is buried in this cemetery? If there is an old obit or a record of some sort, I would love to know – any information would help in putting this family back together and make some sense of it.

Through various censuses – 1850 mostly and other legal documents, I’ve been able to determine the following children were born to Philbert Wright & Nancy Frey:
Joseph A Wright 1826 – 1905 – [I know he’s a son because his #3 marriage document names his parents.]
Philbert A. Wright 1830 – 1853 ---- died young
Nancy *Harriett?"' Wright 1834 – 1906 [married James Love]
Francis Marion Wright 1836 – 1916 [married Lucinda Ooley]
Sarah Jane Wright 1838 – 1919 [married #1,James Sappington; #2, Andrew J Morgan
Elijah C Wright 1840 – 1882 [married Matilda Barnes, then after her death, married her sister Terucia Caroline]
Margaret M Wright 1844 –
Lucy A Wright 1848 – 1870

I have been unable to establish a son shown ‘Albert’, though the 1830 census would bear out that information, but have no other record to make the parent/son relationship. I do have information on the above Joseph – no idea what the ‘A’ stands for. [Perhaps Albert? Don’t know because I’ve never found him by that name.]
3 sons under 5 years of age --- would account for Joseph & Philbert A, [but there is still 1 missing son.]
1 son – 5-9 – ---- this could possibly be the ‘Albert’
1 male – 20-29 [Philbert]
1 female – 20-29 [Nancy]

A court case involving Philbert 1802 and some of his children caused an upset in the family regarding the dispensation of the estate of Philbert A. Wright – 1830-1853. I have 4 documents, if you would like.

The family has not been located in any 1840 census. There is a Philbert Wright living in Washington County, Indiana; however, he was the son of Richard Wright, Sr. and would be a cousin to the above Philbert of Greene County - if Richard and Elizabeth are found to be his parents.

Any 'light' you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Peter Young at Webster
Well my eyes are not that bad yet, ha. I did some checking on family trees and found that his age indeed was 41 years. I also found some information on other members of his family that are buried there and added it. Then on another memorial correction you sent me for Webster, I did the same thing, got looking around and found out that Venus Hawkins was actually Vernice Hawkins and I found new information on him. So Thank You. Also I see that you found Thomas Merit Adams at Webster, strange that you didn't find his wife, perhaps you was on the other side of the gravestone. Thanks for all your input. If you decide to go to Denman, let me know. My days off are...Thursday of this week and then Wed and Thurs of next week and then Tues and Wed of the following week. You said something about me not answering or doing the changes you sent me. I always have, for some reason I must of not gotten them. I know I was without internet for a short while. Thanks again.

RE: Webster cemetery
Oh, boy...

Okay, do you know how to get to Bridgeton? From Bridgeton heading towards Rosedale (don't know what road that is). Anyway after you pass Clear Run Cemetery you keep on that road and it snakes around going back towards Rosedale. The first road that is paved going on a hill on the left (takes this) and then I believe it snakes around to the right and you keep on this road and then it will eventually snake to the right again and there is a farm (white house and white buildings) on the right. The road will head downhill and I believe it goes to the left then you will come to a white house that sits back off the road on the left with a red barn. No one is living there but it is in good share. You can park there and you have to get out and there is a gate behind the barn and house that you go through, cross a little creek and head up the hill. Webster cemetery is on the left side not very far from the house. It is well maintained. HAVE I CONFUSED YOU!!! If you know this area at all you could always stop and ask someone I don't know the road names but even though it is a bit confusing I think my directions are pretty accurate. Let me know if I have you totally lost. Jim
Okay, going back to the first road going up the hill on the left. If you were to go straight two or three houses down on the left on the hill is where a UPS man lives in a really nice white home with a cathedral window on one end. Behind him is Denman Cemetery. This was all part of the original 80 acres that my ancestor Samuel Clark Adams owned. He later sold it to Denmans and then the Webster family. Webster cemetery is on the original 80 acres he owned. The road to Rosedale is to the right of the road that goes uphill on the left that takes you to Webster cemetery, it is either right there or it is just a little bit further up the road on the right. Have I totally confused you?
