I really appreciate the information. At first, I also thought it was Philbert, b. 1768, son of Richard, Sr., but the other names don't coincide with the names on the probate document.
I have documented all of RIchard, Sr.'s children - with the exception of Peter and John. They still elude me.
To my knowledge, Philbert1768 was never in Monroe County. He was in Washington County. I've tried every combination of Williams and Philberts and Johns imaginable, but nothing is working.
Unfortunately [for us left to research the family], the Wright family used the same names for each successive generation.
The probate document did not transition to the Wright Digest, but looking at the 'Crum' children [who appear to be step-children rather than biological children], nothing matches.
Thank you for writing. It's nice to know there's someone out there looking as well.
Question - Who is your William Wright b. 1719 in Surry? Is it possible it's Philbert Wright, b. 1719? If so, he was born in Maryland.
