You're welcome. I always try to take a few extras when I'm looking for someone specific.
I got to looking at the 1830 census records for the Click men old enough in Greene Co to have been Jane's father and I found an extra daughter for Martin Sr that I hadn't noticed before or had either overlooked it. In 1850 Greene Co Jane is living next door to Martin's oldest daughter Mary Click Moncier's daughter Rachel Moncier who married Nathan Click, son of Malachi. And on the other side of Nathan and Rachel is Martin's oldest son John b 1795 who was a potter.
I always wondered why Jane was in Squire Billy McCoy's ledger where William Henry had worked for Squire Billy and he paid Jane for his services. Squire Billy married Anna Moncier, Polly Click's other daughter. I knew she was living around Martin's kids. I think Jane is Martin's daughter by his 2nd wife Elizabeth "Betsey" Kerlin. There's really no other reason for her to be in that location. And in the 1840 census he's got a young boy who would fit William Henry's age in his household. He should have had only one son left at home by 1840. There is also a girl in the household, she doesn't quite fit Jane's age but I don't put much stock in the census takers anyway. And Martin Jr would have been 20 years old and he's in the next bracket higher, so it could have gotten messed up.
So I'm including Jane as Martin's daughter and I truly believe that's where she fits. She may have been a twin. I'll have to relook at the bible records I got and see if her birth date is included in there to see what it says. She was age 37 in 1850.
Have you ever been to the Norton Cemetery on Lonesome Mountain in Madison County. Its an adventure just to get there. I married a Norton from Madison County (Walnut Creek). All I can say is have fun on the trip up there to the cemetery. There is a sign about a foot square on the right hand side of the road saying "Norton Cemetery". If you aren't careful, you will miss the sign because of the growth of bushes and weeds. The cemetery is up the hill from the sign.

Donna – You're very welcomed. It's great meeting you, as well. Yes, I do have an ancestry.com site. This one http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/11540201/person/-442418653 is the start of Clayton Wright and Anna Snyder. You can go backwards to Richard Wright, Jr., [my line] then to Richard, Sr. and to Philbert Wright – of 1700's Maryland. Please feel free to visit.
The entire family has so freely shared information – I hope my site shows the dignity and respect I‘ve developed for this family. I've developed an affinity for Cassandra, though. I'm sure there are still stories to be told about her. Just got one from Garry on an article on Edward D. and Cassandra [Wright] Turner – as provided by Mitchell Turner. It's wonderful and provides a wealth of information. It's posted on the site for Cassandra and I hope you can take the time to visit it. I understand there is a picture of her and I'm trying hard to obtain a copy.
|Shirley Gragg||Thank you!|
Donna - hello. Thank you so much for the information on the CLICK and TURNER family postings. I've been able to put some finishing touches on the Cassandra Wright Turner family.
Cassandra was the daughter of CLAYTON WRIGHT and ANNA SNIDER of Davidson County, NC. Clayton was brother to my GGM - Mary Ann Wright [Varker].
Finding information on this family line is a very special gift and wanted to thank you for taking the time to photograph the headstones and provide information on the individuals.
Garry Brooks, Carolyn Whittaker and Phyllis Curry have all been instrumental in helping me - and now you!
If I can help any with the WRIGHT family, please let me know. There are many that don't have headstones, but lots of information exists.
Again, Thank You.
