I was born in Decatur, Macon Co., IL and have lived in Illinois all my life. My father is George Johnson Wright and mother is Daisy Angeline Norman. I married Franklin Hall Allison b. 1943 in Wayne Co., MO d. 1998 in Butler Co., MO. I remarried to Charles Allison b. 1950 Stoddard Co., MO. In 2006, Charles and I moved to Puxico, MO...who I lost in December 2010.
I have worked for the Postal Service since 1979 and as a Postmaster since 2001. I retired in 2005. In 2007, I went back to work as a Postmaster Relief at the Wappapello Post Office in Wappapello, MO. I retired again in 2010 hoping to spend more time on my hobby and passion of doing Genealogical Research.
I am researching the following names: Norman, Coleman, Brothers, Wright, Bumgardner, Allison, Fox, Nation. I am also researching the states of Illinois and Missouri (SE) for a connection between the Normans of Illinois and those of SE Missouri. I am researching for a connection between the Colemans of Illinois and those of SE Missouri. Any help would be appreciated.
RE: Nancy J. Wright Thanks for the quick reply and the lead on the info. Since you seem to know a lot about this line, have you ever found a connection to the Wright Bros.? Family legend says they are related in one way or another.
Nancy J. Wright I found a picture on this site with your email attached. It is for Nancy J. Wright wife of James B. Wright. Do you know of any documentation for this marriage? They are my distant grandparents and I can find none. From what I have found he remarried and was buried next to his wife Sarah. Any help would be appreciated.
Find A Grave Memorial# 38229239 Hello David L. Clark is my great grandfather. I have not been able to find much about him or my great grandmother Mary A. Where is this cemetery located. I am vaguely familiar with the area. Thank you so much for listing this grave. I didn't know where they were buried and now I may get to visit them.
A few years ago, I was at the Fishery Cem. taking picture when the gentleman who tended the Cem. came over to see if he could help us find any of our relatives. As it turned out he had made a list of all grave sites and a map to go with it. Thus the reason I happen to know where Mag is buried. Sam and Mag may be buried next to each other (they are both in section C. Here are other Harris' buried in the same section.
Robert Fay Harris (1903-1958) Hurb J. Harris (6/18/1898--6/26/1969) Martha E. (Wife of Harry Noble)(5/20/1905--5/13/1976) Harry Noble (8/16/1914--4/28/1942) Madge White Harris (1904--1974) Joe Harris (Dates Unknown)
The A section is infront of the church The B section is just to the right of the A section The C section is below the A section mostley on the right and has a paved road dividing it from the D section.
