Birth: Jan., 1754
Halifax County
Virginia, USA
Death: Oct., 1821
Harrison County
Indiana, USA

Peter Wright, son of Richard Wright, Sr., and his wife Ann was born in 1754 and served in the Revolution. He was given only twenty shillings in his fathers will in 1784. Perhaps he had already left North Carolina as he does not appear in that census for 1790.
A Peter Wright, farmer, over 45, female over 35 with two other females, is listed in Harrison Co., Indiana census for 1820, we believe this may have been Richard Sr's son Peter. West Lee Wright's Bible gives the following: Peter Wright, son of Richard and Nancy Wright, died Oct. 1821. This was West Lee's Uncle Peter.
