Dear List Members,

I am happy to report that the following work has now been printed:

Sorting Some Of The Wrights Of Southern Virginia, Part I, Supplement No. 1: John Wright (Montgomery County), His Wife Mary (_____) Wright, And His Descendants.

This work covers John Wright who died after May 30, 1844 probably in Pulaski County, Virginia, in a part that had been taken from Montgomery County, Virginia, where John and his family had lived most of their life. This John Wright was a son of 1815 Joseph Wright of Bedford County, VA, and a grandson of 1763 Thomas Wright of Bedford County, VA. His children included the following:

1. Probably John Wright,

2. 1850 Perrien Wright of Lawrence County, TN, who married Mary Ann (Horton) Wright,

4. Smith Wright (Montgomery County, VA), who married Rebecca (Barnett or Barrett) Wright,

5. Nancy (Wright) Mullin, who married William G. Mullin,

6. Probably Surfrances G. or D. Wright,
