RE: Grandparents
Do you have access to the book written by Lillie White. "Genealogy of the Wright Family" If not I will copy some pages out of it and send them to you. It has a lot of information on the Crum family. My family had a copy of that book when I was a kid. Were it is at now who knows? But I was able to find a copy on Amazon. I paid $95.00 for it but it was worth it just to have.

RE: Grandparents
I do not think I can help you with that family. I know that we were related but how? We were also related to the Hazel family. In fact I think everyone in Indian Creek Township were related. I have not done a lot of research. I just got interested in the “Wright” family. I am going to Indiana for Labor Day. I can ask my sister if she knows anything. Sorry I could not help you.

Kissing cousins
You may have already seen this, but I found this a while back and had fun figuring my Grandkids relationship with other family members. After about the 3rd. cousin, I just call then kissing cousins.

If I am the 6th Great grandchild of ancestor and
You are the 3rd Great grandchild of same ancestor,
Then You and I are 4th cousins 3 times removed

I was reading your massage to Susan W. I was impressed that Richard Wright, Sr. and Ann – of MD, VA and later NC – was your 3x GGPs. I had 3 more sets of grandparents to get to the same place.

William Bowen # 55262379 GG-Grandfather

RE: Oops
I do trust your information. I am the one that gets mixed up sometime. I used what you said about Richard & Ann Wright, the fact that they did not have any girls born to them, on Ann's memorial. That Lillie "Wright" White didn't have any girls listed. From reading her book, she went all over visiting and taking information from Bibles. If I remember right she was James Wright's granddaughter. Two years ago my sister & I went to the South Union Church. We had a good time & after the service, the pastor took us inside the old church that James had a hand in building. It was beautiful. It was cut up into offices, but all the outside walls were left in tact with the stained glass windows and very nice woodwork. I should have taken some pictures.

PS: If you want be to take it off, let me know and I will do so.

RE: Oops
I updated the information on John Wright. I transferred the memorial to you. I didn't understand just what you were talking about. If there is another memorial out there for him, You can just delete it.

John Wright
Were did you get the information about John Wright that he died in Washington County, Indiana? There is another memorial that has the same dates as the one that I manage. It is John Wright
