Using your information I did some name searches and cross searches and I believe this is what you may be looking for:

Marriage:
Mrs. Catherine Wright married Charles Ferdinand Erickson in Evanston, Uinta, Wyoming on September 5, 1898.
Groom Last Name: ERICKSON
Groom First Name: Charles Ferdinand (36)
Groom Residence: Evanston, Uinta, Wyoming
Bride Last Name: WRIGHT
Bride First Name: Catherine, Mrs. (32)
Bride Residence: Evanston, Uinta, Wyoming
Place: Evanston
Date: 05 Sep 1898

I believe this is the son of Catherine Sullivan Wright Erickson and H.C. Wright. If so, it looks like he did not change his surname to Erickson.

Dear "diskoverit" !

This is what I´ve been looking for the last 35 years.

Really amazing !!!! Thank you so much !!!

Charles Fredinand Erickson was my gr.mothers cousin.

According to familisearch.org or US census 1900 for this Charles F.Erickson who lived in Evanston City Wyoming was born in Apr.1862.
And so was my Charles Ferdinand.
It really must be the same man.

Well,I need help to look for Charles daughters Louise b.July 17 1882 in Omaha Douglas County Nebraska and Pearl b.June 15 1884 in Omaha Douglas County Nebraska.

I shouldn´t be surprised if this is the right Louise,but I found in Genealogybank SSDI a Louise Smith b.July 18 1882 and passed away Mar.1974 in Rawlins Carbon County Wyoming 1974.
There is only one day of different.

Thank you so much for your help,you really maked my day.

Roger

Great, looks like I'm on the right track.

Now, for Pearl. I found a marriage for a Pearl Erickson in Wyoming. I don't know if this is your Peal, but it's a possibility as Pearl is in the 1900 census living with her Mother and Father, in Unita county, Wyoming, b. June 1884.

Diskoverit,

My gosh,what can I say !

Yes,you are really on the right track even for Pearl.
She was born June 15 1884.

Just looked for her in US census 1910,20 and 30,but no track.
Sorry but I´m not familiar with Ancestry.com and I don´t have access.

Thank you !

Roger
