Wright family Randolph County Indiana

Hello,

Does anyone have any information about the Wrights in Randolph County Indiana? I found an online family tree that states that as my GG grandmother's place of birth, but still no luck in finding her parents.

To leahannerichter:

I have not researched all of the Wrights of Randolph County, IN, but can offer you some information on 1853 (year of death) Emson Wright of Randolph County, IN, (place of death).

He was a:
1. son of 1818 Thomas Wright of Clinton County, OH, and Anna (_____) Wright,
2. grandson of 1765 Thomas Wright of Frederick County, VA, and Esther (Hiatt) (Wright) Hains, and
3. great grandson of 1759 James Wright of Frederick County, Va, and Mary (Bowater) Wright.

The children of 1853 Emson Wright of Randolph County, IN, and Rachel (Ruble) Wright were the following:
1. Rachel Wright, born in about 1824 in VA,
2. Thomas Wright, born in about 1828 in VA,
3. Sarah (Wright) Ruble, born in about 1830 in IN,
4. Lourathan Wright, born in about 1832 in IN,
5. Samuel Wright, born in about 1835 in IN,
6. Mary Ellen Wright, born in about 1835 in IN,
7. Jonathan R. Wright, born on Sep 5, 1838, in Randolph County, IN,
8. William Henry Harrison Wright, born in about 1842 in IN, and
9. Delilah (Wright) Hains.

I would be happy to exchange information with you and other researchers interested in this Wright line.

Hi Robert,

I was so excited to find parents of Empson Wright. For some reason I haven't been able to find much info for him. However, I do have him also having a daughter named, Susannah (my gggrandmother) born 1821 and Emily Ann born 1844. Do you have any other info/ stories on him that you could share?

Thanks, Kandy

leahannerichter,

Besides the Wright family in Robert Grant's post there was a Wright family line in the same general area that is not related with that Wright family. The other family were descendents of George Reuter from Germany whom changed the name to Wright. He had the following children: Goodlope who married Sarah Ann Oren; Elizbeth who married John Paschale; George and then a daughter who died as a baby at sea. If the other Wright family doesn't work maybe this could be another place to start. If you could give me your gg grandmother's name maybe I may have her in my info.

You mentioned in your post that . . . "1. son of 1818 Thomas Wright of Clinton County, OH, and Anna (______) Wright,". I have Anna's maiden name as BROWN. No documentation as to where I picked that name up but it could be another 'jumping off' place.
