John Wright b.1830 (Washington Co?) Ohio married Serinda Greathouse 1853

Surnames: Wright, Greathouse in Ohio
My GGG Grandfather was John Wright (b abt 1830 Ohio). I find him on the 1860 census in Lawrence Township, Washington Co, Ohio living with his wife Serinda 25 (nee Greathouse married Nov 1853) and children Harmon 5, Charity 3, and John 3 mo. Serinda's Father John Greathouse is on the same census living in the next household. I have been unable to identify John Wright's place of birth in Ohio or parents. According to information in the Widows Pension records he enlisted in the 18th US Infantry but deserted sometime in 1865 and was never seen by his family again although the same records claim he was alive and in Kansas after 1866.
I seem to have hit a brick wall with this ancestor and would be very greatful for any information that could help me identify his birth place in Ohio and parents names.
