Surnames: Cribb, Wright, Collins
The following will is copied from a microfilmed transcript of the original at the SC State Archives. My husband's ancestor, Elizabeth CRIBB WRIGHT (~1814-1892) d/o Thomas William CRIBB and Elizabeth COLLINS, is believed to be descended from at least 2 John CRIBBs and there may be others named John in the family. I don't know which John CRIBB this will refers to.

Anyone researching this line or similar, please contact me.

This could possibly be the will of my 2nd Great Grand Uncle John C. Cribb, sibling of Elizabeth Cribb Wright, my 2nd Great Grandmother. He was born in 1793 in South Carolina and died 23 Apr 1851 in Marion, South Carolina. That would be about two months after the date of this will on February the 20th 1851.

According to the Federal Census of 1850-

Name:John Cribb
Age: 56

Birthplace: Marion
Home in 1850: Marion, South Carolina

Thank you for this information. It would appear that this will pertains to the same family in the 1850 census you have referenced. Do you have any documentation to indicate that this John Cribb is a brother to Elizabeth Cribb Wright? The only siblings I have for her are Anthony and Rebecca, but my information is very sparse.
Please fell free to contact me off-list.
