Elizabeth WRIGHT was born 27 October, 1834 somwhere near Davidson County, North Carolina. She was the second oldest daughter of Clayton WRIGHT and Anna SNIDER-WRIGHT.
Sometime between her birth and the year 1850, Elizabeth moved with her family to the Cocke County, Tennessee area. Which was just a little ways over the North Carolina State Line. Close to Cherokee Indian Country. On 26 December, 1854 at the age of 20 years Elizabeth WRIGHT married one Preston W. CLICK, son of George Lewis CLICK and Margaret Peggy JONES. To this union was one child born, a daughter "Julie Ann CLICK", born 17 December, 1855 in Cocke County, Tennessee. The Television series "Christy" by Catherine Marshall was based on the lives of the Click family from Cocke County Tennesse.
In the year 1859, Preston W. Click passed away somewhere in Cocke County, Tennesse. Upon his death his widow Elizabeth CLICK-WRIGHT sold his entire estate and relocated with her father and siblings to Knights Prairie, in Hamilton County, Illinois. It is rumored the family left the Tennessee area via Wagon Train, though I have never seen any positive proof of them doing so.
On 8 May, 1859, Elizabeth CLICK-WRIGHT married for the second time, to Martin Van Buren ACORD in Hamilton County, Illinois. This was also the second marriage for Mr. ACORD. He was the son of Job Jacob ACORD and Mary Polly HARPER-ACORD. To this union were thirteen children born: James Martin, Rachel, Burgess Franklin, Robert M., Andrew J.,Martha J., Marian, Richard Hamilton, Nancy, Lonzo Layfayette, Arminda M.,Adora E. and Daisey Mae ACORD.
From the time of their marriage until the year 1882, we find
Elizabeth WRIGHT-CLICK-ACORD and husband Martin ACORD living in the Hamilton County, Illinois area. In the year 1882, Martin Van Buren ACORD passed away somewhere in Hamilton County, Illinois.
In the year 1886 we find Elizabeth ACORD living in Morley Township, Scott County, Missouri. On 20 August, 1886 she married for the third time to a Mr. William REEVES, in Benton, Scott County, Missouri. Sometime between 1886 and the year 1910, Mr. William REEVES passed away. We then find Elizabeth REEVES living with her daughter Dora (ACORD) and her husband Sampson W. SHERRY, in Morley, Scott County, Missouri.
On 1 August, 1912 Elizabeth WRIGHT-CLICK-ACORD-REEVES passed away somewhere near Oxley, in Ripley County, Missouri.
