Hi, I'm trying to find info on my great-grandfather, Jerimiah Wright. One thing I've found is he was born in Crawford County, IL Sept 1959. He was listed on the 1860 U.S. Census as living there along with George Wright (age 4), Charity Wright (age 30) and Mary Wright (age 55). By the 1900 Census he was married to my great-grandmother, Mary Lucetta Kent (for 11 years) and living in Sullivan Indiana with two children (Bessie - my grandmother and Earl). He died in 1903 and is buried in Sullivan Indiana. I have not had any luck finding his father's name. I sort of assume that the Charity listed in the 1860 Census might be his widowed mother & the Mary listed his paternal grandmother - but that is just a guess. I'd sure appreciate any information or thoughts of where to look next.
