My great-great-grandmother married John Wright on the 10th of August 1852. She had 9 children as follows: William W., Mary E., Charles S., Orpha, George C., Thomas G., Sarah E., Flora, and Fredrick..........

Her obit is as follows:
Mrs. Anna Wright, widow of the late John Wright, and sister of the late Mrs. Ellis Slifer, who died here last Friday, passed away at her home in St. Paul, Wednesday evening at 9 o'clock. Her death was caused from senility and was not unexpected, as she had been in a critical condition for some time. Her brother, Cumberland Ridlin, aged 88 years is also critically ill at his home in St. Paul.
Mrs. Wright was aged eighty-five years, nine months and twenty-four days and was born in Shelby County, the daughter of Stephan and Mary Ridlin. She had lived in St. Paul for many years and was one of its respected and honored residents. Surviving her, besides the brother names above , are three sons and two daughters namely, W. W. Wright and George C. Wright, of Shelby County, Thomas G. Wright, of California; Mrs. Elmer Manlief of Rush County, and Mrs. J. T. Cuskaden, of St. Paul. Mrs. Frank Harrell, of West South Street, is a niece. There are also twenty grand-children and thirty-one great-grand-children surviving.
She was a member of the Valley Methodist Church and worked with great earnestness in that congregation, being a woman who at all times was ready to serve to the best of her ability in the welfare of the community.
Funeral services were announced for Saturday morning at 10 o'clock from the Valley Methodist Church, south of Waldron, and burial will be made in the Ogden Cemetery. Stewart & Fix, undertakers, were in charge of the funeral and burial.
