Ursula Wright Dunham
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 23, 1760
Death: Dec. 27, 1826
East Nichols
Tioga County
New York, USA

Ursula was the widow of a Mr. Gilbert by whom she had a son Isaac who died young. She remarried to Sylvanus Dunham 1778. Isaac Watson Dunham in his book stated that she was the daughter of Capt. Job Wright and sister to Caleb Wright. This has not been either proved nor disproved. But Caleb did indeed go to Nichols, Tioga, NY where he erected the first sawmill in 1791. He came from Westchester Co, NY in 1790. Several of Ursula and Sylvanus's sons worked for Caleb when they too removed to same area.

In addition to children listed here, they had a son Nathaniel whose burial is unknown, but his widow was buried in Iowa (48122850 where more info about this family may be seen).

The abive-mentioned book adds two more daughters: Anna and Ellen, but these have not been found. Based on my 40 years of research on this family, it is my belief Anna and Ellen were granddaughters rather than daughters.
