Re: Devil John Wright

I have recently traced my lineage back to "Devil" John Wright. I have always heard stories about him and was very interested in him, and now I know that I'm actually more closely related than I had thought.

"Devil" John's "most legitimate" daughter, the one he raised, was named Elizabeth Wright.
She married Riley Mullins, and they had a daughter named Bonnie Mullins.
Bonnie married Ralph Sherman, and their daughter was named Elizabeth Sherman.
Elizabeth Sherman married Charles Anderson, and their son was named Mark Anderson.
Mark Anderson is my father; my name is Venus Anderson, and I am 17 years old.

So, it turns out that "Devil" John is a great-great-great grandfather of mine and I'm proud to be a direct descendant of such an interesting and admirable man.

I'm sorry that I can't give dates on the births, deaths, or marriages of those listed above, but I'm working on it. I can tell you that Elizabeth Sherman and those after her are all still living.

I am very interested in this line of geneology, and if anyone has any further information, please email me at and let me know.
