Birth: Apr. 22, 1831
Frederick County
Virginia, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 1902
Virginia, USA

The daughter of Maj. Uriel Sebree Wright and his wife Sarah G. Tuley.

She married 4 February 1858, St. Louis, Missouri to Upton Lawrence Boyce (b. October 30, 1830, KY; d. December 24, 1907).

In 1860, she and her husband were living with her family:

Although Belinda's father was an abolitionist in sympathy and defended the rights of free blacks and slaves, he also believed states had a constitutional right to secede and he supported the Confederacy. The family moved back to Virginia to live on the Tuley estate "The Tuleyrie" near White Post, Clarke Co., VA while the men of the family practiced law in nearby Winchester.

Belinda's mother died in 18 and her father in 1869. The Tuleyrie" was sold in 1866 to settle her uncle Joseph Tuley Jr.'s estate, but the family continued to live together nearby:
