RE: Sharing information
Yes my great grandfather did travel back and visited two times. He was able to find his son after he was married and had children. The one son was 12 years old at the time and wrote a letter about what he remembered. I included a transcript of that letter on the memorial of William James Snow,

RE: Sharing information
I just read your message. I will look into that book. Our family has a 6 brother story. What is sad is that our Grandfather was left behind by his family during the Civil war. We have had some pretty good researchers try to trace his family back with no luck. All we know is that 6 Snow brothers came from England and settled though the southern states of Kentucky & Tennessee. We were able to trace his father out to California and that is it. Thank you for your interest & dedication. Becky

Hi Ann,, thanks for the message and link to your ancestry tree. Yes I subscribe there and have probably seen most of what you have but I'll take a look when I have more time. I probably don't have much of anything that would be new to you but I'll be happy to check my records and yes I am more than happy to share. I suppose you know about Michael Cooley's website? he also did quite a bit of research into the Wrights, his website link is... sometimes find his writing a little difficult to sort through but he seems to know what he's doing.

Ann Wright
Shirley, I am most grateful for your message re: Ann Wright's gravestone. I figured her stone might not be standing still. Ann and Richard Wright are my x6 great-grandparents. I descend through their son William. I am adding what you wrote in your message to my records, actually sometimes these stories are the most interesting part of research. Thanks again and happy hunting!

RE: Ann Wright
That information is in Lillie White's book. She got a lot of her information from Grant Wright. He was a farmer and attended Bryant & Stratton Business College at Louisville, Ky. He was member of Indiana Historical Society. He spent over 30 years collecting information on the Wright family. Grant Wright was born July 3, 1868. I know that there was a few years between Richard Wright's death & his birth. But!!! I seem to believe the word of mouth & old bible records. Oh well that is just me. Thinks for your time.

Richard Wright Family Cemetery
Dear Shirley,
My name is Whit and I have a question about this cemetery. Do you have coordinates for it, and also my directs there are Ann Wright and her husband. Are there headstones there. If so may I send a request for their headstone photos?

Ann Wright
I got a edit from Nuckolls (#48091155) stating that Ann's birth year was 1732. I interred it but do not have any way to confirm it. What should I do?

RE: Nancy or Ann
That is fine. I did it already and there is no need to change it back.
