>Dear Marsha & Freda,
> Thank you for all your efforts in responding to my email- Susan
>Hoke and I are well acquainted as both of us descend from Joel
>Wright. Our gg grandfathers were brothers, both sons of Joel. We
>recently traveled to Anson and Richmond Counties to further search
>for anything on Major William Wright and his wife Lydia. We were
>already aware of the info on George you so kindly sent me. I have
>been in contact with Ralph Wright who descends from George. He just
>recently ordered a DNA kit from you Marsha. We are waiting on
>another cousin of ours to get the DNA kit but if he doesn't surface
>soon, I will order it for my brothers. The only way we can prove if
>we are descended from William, brother to George, is if our DNA's
>match. I am contacting Susan today to ask her to check the Bladen
>County Courthouse for any records that might possible be there on
>William Wright. I find it extremely odd that much info can be found
>on George but not one iota on William and the census records proves
>he lived in Richmond County from 1790 until his death in the 1840.
>Lydia can be found in the 1850 census.
> Once that is done, we can all begin our search for William and
>George's father. I have ruled out the Irish John Wright because he
>did not have a son named George. So where do we go from here? Did
>William and George actually immigrate to this country as adult
>brothers from Ireland? That is highly possible since many
>Scotch-Irish formed Bladen County which was divided into Richmond,
>Scotland and Anson counties later. But how in the world do we begin
>to find what line we came from? I have searched the Wright line
>from Kelverdon England- we do not fit that line. Any ideas on
>where to start to connect our families? Where do we go from here?
>Looking forward to solving our puzzle.
