Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very much into Family History. I love to hear over and over the stories of what made our family what it is today. I want to preserve those stories for future generations. My husband and I love going to cemeteries and taking photo's. We hope that the interments we have done on Find A Grave will help another genealogist looking for a family member. If there is any question about one of my interments, please feel free to contact me about it.

Forgive any unanswered emails or messages from find a grave . On August 24, 2014 we lost our home and contents to a fire and I have been wrapped up with rebuilding our home in furnishing it and have not had a chance to really look at family history or find a grade during this time . I am going to be trying to catch up shortly , thank you for your understanding .

John Wright
One further comment - I think the 1864 death date shown in the Lewis Co. Cemetery record must have been a misprint and it should be 1884. Based on the 1900 census John B. would not have been the son of Susan since it shows she had no ch.

RE: John Wright
OK, thanks. Things like this drive me crazy until I figure them out. I think I may have solved this one. I found Thomas G's will on - dated 8 Dec 1897, proved 2 Jan 1906:

He lists wife, Susan and children, Rebecca Law, R. H., and William B and that's all.

Thomas G. marr. 12 Nov 1850 Highland Co., WV Barbara Hevener. They are in the 1860 census of Doddridge Co. John B. is not listed as a child, but it does list Rebecca age 8, Rolandus H. age 6 (both in the will), Burton J. age 4, James age 2.

The 1880 census lists Thomas G in Freeman's Creek, Lewis Co., with wife Susan and ch. John B. age 24 and WILLIAM B. age 12 who is in the will.

The 1900 census lists Thomas G. with wife Susan. They have been marr. 24 yrs but never had children. So all his ch. would be by 1st wife, Barbara.

Thomas G. marr. Susan Hall 7 Dec 1875 Lewis Co., WV.

Hope this helps. I believe it is only one family based on the above.

RE: John Wright
Rhonda, I looked thru my edits and messages and did not see one for John Wright. Would you please refresh my memory as to his memorial # and the edit(s) I suggested (and when). I might be able to do some further checking on my end.

Thank you Rhonda. Very much appreciated! Just a few weeks ago I was at Baldwin Memorial and visited with all my family members who are buried there -- including Eleanor who was my 4th great grandmother.
