Isn't it amazing how old messages still keep going and going and going, like the Energizer Bunny?

I have scanned the Bible records and transcriptions supplied to my by Connie Trogdon. Here is a link John Wright in her tree at Ancestry:

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/13680727/person/-29107507

Connie is a descendant of another son, William, and I am a descendant of another son, James.

My images are very poor quality - scans of copies of copies of copies of the original record. I'd suggest contacting Connie Trogdon to see if she might have better quality images, but if not, you can get back to me and I'll e-mail you what I have.

I am very interested in the DNA aspects of our quest. We do have some Y-chromosome results already, but it would be good if we could confirm them with with a descendant from a different line, such as your John b 1811. Do you have any male relatives who still carry the Wright surname? If so, I'd be willing to sponsor a test at Family Tree DNA.

I'd also be willing to sponsor a test at 23andMe for autosomal DNA (which tracks any of your ancestral lines, not just the straight paternal line). The best person for this test is the oldest generation (the closest generation to John), regardless of whether the line of descent zigzags back and forth between males and females.
