Wright Holmes

Birth: Jan., 1786
Lancashire, England
Death: May 3, 1864
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA

Wright Holme was Baptized 8 Jan 1786, Manchester England, Parish Bolton Lemoors, St. Peters Turton Chapel. Parents: William and Mary. Baptism date conflicts with the tombstone inscription. Wright brought his family to America, departing from Liverpool, Eng, arriving 7 Dec 1826 at Philadelphia, PA on the vessel Julius Caesar. Burial date according to Charles Evans Cemetery records was May 5, 1864. This conflicts with the tombstone inscription as well, but it's probably the more accurate record. Their records also show that he was 78 years old at the time of his death, putting his DOB around 1786.
