Birth: Jun. 12, 1880
Lincoln County
Kansas, USA
Death: Aug. 13, 1945
Yellowstone County
Montana, USA

Samuel was a stockman, farmer and thresher. On 27 Dec 1911 in Quincy, Adams, Illinois, he married Nancy Ann McDaniel. They had three children: Cleo Evelyn; Samuel Mitchell; and Carra Ellen.
From an obituary in the Independent Record, Helena, 17 Aug 1945, I gleaned a little more information. "The family came to Montana in a covered wagon in 1890 and settled at Musselshell crossing. Later they moved to a farm east of Mossmain. Mr Wright drove a stagecoach in Yellowstone Park early in the century. In 1906 he purchased a threshing outfit, one of the first in the section. He remained in the business for 36 yrs. In recent years he operated a tourist camp in Casper, WY.
A son, Sam M Wright of Holly, MI survives, as do the two daughters: Mrs Paul A Stewart of Helena and Mrs Margaret Sheets, who is with her mother while her husband is overseas with the armed forces; and a grandchild. (obit is thanks to alsjoy, FAG #47037542)
