My grandmother was 2nd cousins to the Wright Brothers. As far as I can find, only Lorin and Orville married. Anyone out there descendants of those 2 men?

As of last night Monday Aug.1,2000 I was informed by an older relative that the Wright Brothers were ancestors to us, and that in New York there is a cemetary named after them that the family still owns. I am also attempting to learn more about the family tree. If this seems as though it may be the same people we're talking about contact me at DollyBuggy0129@cs.com Thanks

From a little more digging around, I know that my great-grandfather's first name was George Wright, his wife's name was Blance.
My grandmother told us she was a 2nd cousin to the Wright brothers, but I haven't found a mention of a George Wright anywhere yet-though he could be one of the brother's children. I'm wondering about the names of Lorin Wright and Wilbur Wright's children. Any clues?

I will be speaking with the relative who gave me the information on the Wright Brothers being ancestors to us. He did mention some other names like Ida E. Seaman, and Ambrose Arnold Seaman being my great grandparents. I will ask him if he knows anything about their children. I do know of the Wright cemetary I may have mentioned, my natural father is buried there, and I will also see if I can get more names from the head stones of the people buried there to see if I can help you. Let me know if this has been of any help.

So far none of the names you mentioned have come up, but I have a few gaps in the family that I'm trying to fill in still. I'll have to get back to you on those.

The only new info I have is that my grandmother's parents names were George Washington Wright,Jr. and Blanche Barr Wright
I'm at a brick wall now as I have no names or dates after these. Thanks,Judy

The only information I have to date is that Orville and Wilbur Wright are some how related to my family. I am finding it very difficult to learn what I am seeking as well. But should I learn anything, I would be more then happy to share it with you. Do any of these names sound familiar? Steffens, Browns, Taylors or Seaman. Please let me know!

No I'm sorry to say they don't. I'll be sure to pass whatever else I'm able to find with you also.
