my name is jeff schultz and i am curious about hosea wright and sarah crews...i find your site lists 12 children...but i also found the 1830 and 1840 census listings for hosea wright in 1830 and sarah crews wright in 1840 clark, clinton co. ohio...and am baffled as to why a female appears listed in the 1825-1830 birth range in both households...also interesting is that many of hosea senior's children go to parke co., indiana area in the late 1830s to early 1840s such as john e. wright b. 1816, hiram wright b. 1806-07, deborah wright married to james j. vinzant...coincidentally and relatedly my distant grandmother rhoda wright b. 7/18/1826 (per west union quaker records and in the 1850 and 1860 censuses of indiana lists as born in ohio) is seen marrying james engle in 1-20-1842 parke co. ind. yet more intersting is that james engle b. 7/21/1814 is the son of samuel engle and elizabeth willetts of fairfield, highland co. ohio (which neigbors clark, clinton co., ohio) as seen in the 1820, 1830, and 1840 censuses...curiously i know james engle travels to parke co., indiana after the 1840 census of fairfield, highland co. ohio and the female in the hosea wright sarah crews household b. between 1825-30 disappears...also rhoda is a name of hosea senior's sister and rhoda wright and james engle also had children named after other sister's of hosea sr. such as deborah and judith...is this coincidence??...my question then is your site lists that these children are written in hosea senior's family bible, then why is there no mention of this female ostensibly a daughter born between 1825-1830 as seen in both the 1830 and 1840 census listings in clark, clinton co., ohio?? please let me know your thoughts or if there is infact info. on this missing female daughter of hosea sr. and sarah crews born 1825-1830...thanks my -mail email@example.com
also another interesting highlight that i believe links my rhoda wright engle with hosea wright family is that rhoda seems to have named her children after some of her sisters...for instance rhoda wright engle named two of her daughters judith and deborah...kind of an odd coincidence...also it is a known fact that james engle as of the date of the 1840 census june to august of 1840 is still residing with his father samuel engle and mother elizabeth willett(s) and is listed in the 20-30 year age category (born july 1814) as seen in fairfield, highland county, ohio. interestingly sarah crews wright and her househld is in neighboring clark, clinton county, ohio...and interestingly enough a female in the age 10-15 span...this was probably the youngest child...since we know in the 1850 and 1860 census she is listed as from ohio and given her youthful age at marriage, it may be safe to assume she eloped with james engle...furthermore, this means that rhoda wright would have started their relationship between june-august 1840 to their obvious marriage date of 1/20/1842...with female names suchas rhoda, deborah, and judith in rhoda wright engle's family coupled with the location of this unexplained female aged born 1825-30 in the hosea wright sarah crews family and the migration pattern of the other children of hosea wright and sarah crews (deborah wright vinzant, hiram wright, john e. wright toparke, hendricks, putnam, ind areas at roughly the 1830s to early 1840s)...this makes for very interesting future research....at any rate please let me know what you uncover
