It would appear that perhaps this John Wright, Jr. is NOT buried here. Before I remove him completely, I want to look into the idea that I was thinking of William Petty (or Pettey). When I find out something that rules this John Wright in or out definitely, then I will remove him from this cemetery record. Posted before the row of asterisks on June 20, 2009

Some records show 1728 approximate birth date. He may have been born in Leesylvania, Prince or Fauquier County, Virginia. He may have died in Surry County, but been buried in Yadkin County. His wife was Ann (Williams) Wright. They were married in 1753 in Fauquier County, Virginia.

I believe he founded or was first to preach at Flat Rock Baptist Church.

Between the row of asterisks is information contributed on March 11, 2014 from

Please add notes:
John Wright III, is listed in the records of the Sons of the American Revolution, as CAPT John Wright. He was also a Reverend or Preacher and it is said that he did indeed assist in the begging of the Flat Rock church previously mentioned.

I took the liberty of correcting the spelling of Reverend and of changing the word begging to beginning.
