There may have been other children that I have not listed. I would appreciate any additional research for this family.

James was with his family on the 1800 census in North Carolina, and some of his children were born here. Before 1808 they have located to Madison County, Ohio.
James Wright was found in Madison Co., Ohio in 1808 along Glade Run, Deer Creek Township. This county was formed from Franklin County, Ohio. James Wright owned the land where the Wright Cemetery is located in Madison County, Ohio. The cemetery is located 7 miles south of US Rt.,#40 on Glade Run Road, Deer Creek Township, Madison County, Ohio. In one corner of the cemetery at a point fartherest from the road are two hand hewn stones. On one the initials JAW appears, and on the other is EW. This may be where James A. Wright and wife Elizabeth are buried. This research was compiled August 3, 1977 by David B. Ridenour of London, Ohio, a Wright descendant.

In the Madison County, Ohio 1830 census records only Asa, Daniel, and James are listed. In the 1840 census only James and Daniel are listed in Madison County, Ohio.

During the 1840's Ira and Anna settled in Marshall County, Illinois.
