Wright Family
Hi Shirley, as far as I know we are not related to Squire Philbert Wright. I had checked him out as we have a Philbert Wright in Indiana and I saw no connection.

If he is your family I will gladly transfer him.

Philbert seems to run in several Wright families. I have a file of misc. Philbert Wright or connections to a Philbert Wright. Would you like me to send it to you? Maybe your line is there.

Our connection is Maria Elizabeth Wright born 28 March 1830 probably Greene County, Indiana. There is a Philbert Wright 15171237 in that county right age to be her father but cannot find documentation.

RE: Tempy Bishop
Tempy Bishop was one of the persons listed buried in the Osawatomie State Hospital Cemetery. Further information has been received from her great-great grandson if you wish to contact him. Good luck in your research.

RE: Richard Wright, Sr.
My great-great grandmother was Tempa (Tempy) Wright-Bishop. I dont have much information regarding Tempa´s ancestors. Any information would be appreciated.
I do know she died in Osawatomie Mental Hospital Osawatomie, Kansas. She died in 1894. Her husband died two years later in Hancock Illinois (no grave marker know).
Tempy is buried at the hospital cemetery in an unmarked grave, sad.
I know she was admitted to the hospital December 26, 1893. It must have be a terrible problem. She was living with a daughter and the distance in those days must have been a 3 day journey (horse and buggy).

No, I did not receive anything on Peter Tough. Would love to have it. Thought about creating a memorial for him but I have no dates, etc. for him. Look forward to what ever you send. Thanks for all you have done for me. More later,

Oops, more Wright relatives.
Just looked through my Wright memorials and there are more ocnnections by marriage to my husband's Bragg & Shumaker family and one to my Warren side of my family. Happen to think there must be others since it seems my husband & I are related to almost everyone who lived in this area of Missouri years ago either by blood or by marriage. Hubby and I are distant cousins to each other twice! How is that for being related!

Don't look much like I will be going to the fields today. Should be raining here according to the weather radar on my computer. Need to mow yard so I may get out there pretty soon and do some mowing once the rain moves on. It has been a little to hot for me the past few days so hoping it is cooler out today with the clouds hanging around. More later,

RE: Family
Just related by marriage as far as I know. My husband's grandmother married William Valentine Wright. If there are any others I am not aware of them. Doesn't look like we will be doing much today. Cloudy out and rain in the forecast. Have a nice day,

RE: Family
Your not in my way! Just wanted to let you know what is keeping me busy. We do have a garden or at least my hubby does. Had to can tomatoes and peaches this summer and still have a few tomatoes in the garden. Had bacon & tomato sandwitches last week. To busy now to cook so hubby is eating sliced ham for his lunch. Think he is taking a nap. No hurry going back to the field I guess. Most of our crops are field corn (the kind that cows eat) but most of ours goes to the ethenal plant south of us. It is blended with gasoline and used as fuel. One of our vehicles uses E85 so I fill up my gas tank with it most of the time. We also grow soybeans and a lot of hay. Have over 100 head of beef cows with almost that many calves. Takes a lot of hay to feed them through the winter. More later as it looks like it might be going to rain. Need to get hubby back out there in the field!

RE: Family
Maybe this winter when things slow down I will try looking at your family tree on Ancestry and the other sites you mentioned. We started harvesting corn today. Have wagons loaded but stopped to get something to eat and get the tractor to pull the wagons with so my computer time is limited for awhile. I will try to keep up on my edits and was able to work one in before responding to your message. Have a nice day,

RE: Family
Received your edit for Olive Tough. Thanks so much for sending me the correct name of the cemetery in New Zeland where she is buried. Knew there must have been a spelling error in the name of the town/cemetery! Thanks again,
