Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in Southern Indiana where we raised our 5 sons.

Please feel free to use any of my memorial stone photos. I seldom post private photos but when I do, please ask first before using them.

#1. I regret that I will no longer just hand over the work I have done.
Naturally, I will transfer within guidelines and will transfer outside guidelines in case by case situations. Tell me WHY you want my hard work given to you. And I am perfectly capable of making "extensive" additions or changes.

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

RE: Elizabeth C. Smith
Thank you. Elizabeth is on her way back to you. Philbert & Mary Sears Wright had at [according to his will] 12 children.

Nancy Wright 1794 – 1888
Eli Wright 1795 – 1833
Evins Wright 1797 – 1895
Sarah Wright 1799 – 1894
Barbara Wright 1801 – 1833
Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wright 1803 – 1865
Catherine 'Caty' Wright 1806 – 1891
Delilah Wright 1808 – 1873
Absolom Wright 1811 – 1868
Celia Wright 1813 – 1893
Mary 'Polly' Wright 1814 – 1879
John Wright 1817 – 1880

Quite a prolific family, so I'm sure they wouldn't have noticed one more at the table. :)
God bless!

RE: Elizabeth C. Smith
Thank you so much for your kind reply. Sometimes things require a 2nd look to make sense - and your comment certainly does just that. thank you for bringing that to my attention.

Since she is not a relative of Philbert or Mary Sears Wright, I'd be glad to edit the information on the current site and retransfer her to you. There may be someone who is related to her.

Your transfer to me was based on the probability that she was related - which eventually proved that she was not.

I truly appreciate your kindness and help in my quest for my family and I feel I have found a kindred spirit. I would like to keep that.

Please let me know your desire in this.

Hello jbmgs,

Eric Carman would be my Uncle. His parents were Wm Terry CARMAN and Sarah Hancock. Could you please add the parents to Eric. The parents are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Louisville KY.

Thank you for your services to Fina A Grave.

I believe that I visited with you when I was at the cemetery a few years back. You and the boys working with you at that time showed me various graves in the cemetery.

Find A Grave Memorial# 50426535

I apologize for asking, but would you please delete the site? I cannot since you created it. Philbert Wright's will does not name this person as a daughter. The fact that Elizabeth was born the year after Mary Sears, his wife, died makes it impossible for her to be their child. Philbert and 2nd wife, Elizabeth Beck, had no children of their own.

Burial: [Edit]
Old Old Blue River Cemetery

Memorial# 45710664
Richard Wright - believed born 1798 in Powell's County, VA. died 1833. This is the 'rest of the story'. Thought it might be of interest:

"The Cholera Scourge [page 200] – “The dreadful epidemic that prevailed in Salem in 1833 almost depopulated the town for a while. …”.

Fatalities Not Confined to Town. “ Those who died in the County of the dread disease [cholera] were Mary Albertson, John Lockland, James Craig, Peter Vancleave, Mrs. Keller, Mr. Sapp and wife, Joseph Trowbridge, Misses Elizabeth and Eleanor Allen, ELI WRIGHT, Mr. Tigner and wife, Mrs. C Prow, Mrs. kindle, Mrs. bunch, Mrs. Hole, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Zink and two sons; RICHARD WRIGHT and George Killion…..The disease disappeared almost as suddenly as it came, there being no cases after the 7th of July [1833]”.

Joseph F. Evans Memorial# 82892820
Hi, I have a question about Joseph Evans' middle name. On his baptism papers and on his WWI Draft card it states his middle name as Frederick/Fred. Did he later use the middle name of Ford?
