Hello Beth! William Wright appeared in the 1861 census of Mariposa with son Richard, wife Sarah Cooper and family. His age at the time indicates that William was born about 1776. His daughter Sarah was born in 1814 in County Down which suggests the family originated there. William died on 10 April 1861 and is buried in Black's Family Plot on Lot 5 Con. 13 Mariposa Twp. I have seen the Wright gravestone there. (That lot belonged to pioneer John Black and is diagonal to Richard Wright's Lot 6 Con. 12.) William's wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) was born about 1780 (likely in County Down) and died 8 July 1848. She was also buried in Black's. William and Elizabeth's son John was born about 1819 in Ireland and their next known child Richard was born on 15 March 1824 in Cavan Twp., so the family came to Canada between 1819 and 1823. The Wright family may have been related to or very close friends with William Copeland and family on Lot 6 Con. 13 Mariposa who arrived in 1825. My William Cooper (1824-1870) was reportedly born in County Down as was his wife Maria Copeland (1824-1909) who was a daughter of William Copeland There is more to report but I'll await your response to this message.
