Joseph Harvey Wright and Mary Thresa Sturgis also had another son. His name was Frank Leslie. He was born in 1857. He traveled west after moving to Clay County, Kansas and marrying. Story has it that he went looking for gold as he sent gold home. The story is that he was robbed and killed on his way back home. Could have been in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming.
Joseph Harvey Wright's Mother is buried beside him and passed away two weeks after he made it home from the Civil War. Her name was Margarett Moody Wright. Joseph's brother Andrew died on route home and is buried Salisbury,Rowen County, N.C. Andrew and Joseph were prisoners of war and released from Andersonville,Georgia. They were captured in Gunstown, Mississippi, where Andrew was wounded, sent to Tn. and then on to Ga.
Haven't been able to find anything on Joseph and Andrew's Father. If you have any info on him, would love to hear from you. I am under the assumption that he passed sometime in the 1840's possibly in Pa.
