Elizabeth wrote a book entitled "The Early Upper Napa Valley" in 1928 which was reprinted in 1991. In this booklet, on page 39, is a biographical sketch about Elizabeth and her husband George Ripley Wright. Elizabeth Cyrus Wright was also the librarian at the Calistoga Public Library.

The 1900 U.S. Census shows that George and Rachel, along with George's father, John, were living on the McDonnell Ranch. Both George and John were farming.


Note: Lelia Crouch [Elizabeth's niece] was responsible for the bronze plaque. The contributor of this memorial has a copy of a letter from Lelia Crouch dated May 17, 1973 in which she states in her response to Marian Rich: "...when my parents died and [their] ashes were buried in the old cemetery [Pioneer] here, I had Aunt "Lib's" (Elizabeth [Wright]) and Uncle George's names added to the bronze plaque on the family lot, as well as my Mother's bachelor brother [James Cyrus]."
