RE: Grave-Elizabeth Gosner.
Sorry but I don't know anything more about a plot map for Christ Church Burial Ground in Philadelphia but maybe someone else does hopefully.

Lois,

I believe that the tombstone in the pictures I sent for Nancy and for Mary has the names for Nancy, Christopher, and Mary Keller. However, I could not read it as it is marble and has aged a lot.

Lois,

This tombstone is impossible to read. I understand that you are wondering if the note that she was 49 yrs could be a misreading. That certainly could be possible, but the cemetery was first surveyed in 1967, then again in 1989 and in 2001. So, depending on the readability at those times, corrections could have been possible but are not certain.

RE: John Hays
I have removed the wrong John Hays and the sight has the correct one. Also the church had all the printing on the headstone as it is difficult to read.

RE: John Hays
I have gone back to the cemetery and gotten the correct John Hays. The grave photo appeared upright in the photo preview. There is also a marker indicating that he fought in American Revolution.

RE: John Hays
I have contacted the church who has the grave records. Sorry about the big mixup. both men died in the same year. I have located the correct grave and will take a picture tomorrow and try to upload before I leave for vacation the following day.

RE: Dr. Isaac Wright
Hello Lois - I have read what you wrote on Ancestry, but I will tell you that Dr. Isaac H. Wright is a different man than Dr. Isaac Hendon Wright (1813-1892) of Neenah, Wisconsin. There is no record of the latter Dr. Wright ever living at Cincinnati, OH and he was never married to a Harriet Cobbs. Dr. Isaac Hendon Wright was the son of John Wesley Wright and grandson of John Wright and Jemima (HENDON) Wright of Huntingdon County, PA. The book entitled "Family History", published in 1903 by Publius Vergilius Lawson of Menasha, Wisconsin (President of the Wisconsin Library Association at that time). P. sV. Lawson was the son-in-law of Dr. Isaac Hendon Wright as Lawson was married Aug. 5, 1884 at Neenah, WI to Wright's daughter Florence Josephine Wright, b. July 9, 1860. In this book pp. 235-243 he details the Wright Family and particularly his father-in-law which Lawson says "he knew well." On p. 237-238 he recounted: "Dr. Isaac Hendon Wright was born October 21, 1813, among the Allegheny mountains in central Pennsylvania, in the township of Union, near Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. His father, John Wright, was a farmer, and he was born on a farm, where his young life was spent, and in the neighborhood of which he attended the country school." (It continued noting his marriage Sep. 1, 1855 at Henderson, NY to Rachel E. Finney). P. V. Lawson also recounted part of an account of Wright's life "from the public press of Neenah, Wisconsin" (apparently published at the time of Wright's death as it calls him the "late" Dr. Wright). That stated: "In 1834, at the age of twenty-one, he [Wright] went to Ohio and entered the medical college at Newark, Ohio, where he remained some time, afterwards pursuing his studies in Walloughby and Cleveland, graduating in the latter city. In 1848, fourteen years after entering upon a medical career, he came to Oshkosh, and with his brother, A. B. Wright, who was also a physician, formed a partnership for the practive of his profession." The Lawson book also recounts the bible record of John Wright and Elizabeth (Gosnell) Wright and the names and births of their nine children as: Joshua Wright, b. Nov. 3, 1803; Sarah Wright, b. Mar. 4, 1806; Greenbury Wright, b. Nov. 19, 1808; Mary Wright, b. June 16, 1811; Isaac Hendon Wright, b. Oct. 21, 1813, Naomi Wright b. May 23, 1815 (my 3gg mother who named her second son Aaron Brooks Wright Bailey); Aaron Brooks Wright, b. Apr. 15, 1819, Lewis Wright b. July 8, 1822 and Rachel Wright b. Nov. 9, 1826 (the latter two died before marriage). I hope this clears up the matter. Cordially, Chris H. Bailey

RE: Photo Daugherty
You're welcome. Shirley Aleguas is a neighbor, and she has continued her mother's work in reading all the cemeteries in Morgan County. I did contract her about another photo request, and she graciously allowed me to cross post the pictures from the rootsweb. morgan county site to Find A Grave with her name as contributor. She has posted on the county site that if you would like originals of any of the grave site pictures, she can supply them. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

RE: Photo-Agnes Holmes Wright
She was an accidental find when looking for someone else, so I was excited to find her. She was not on a partial plot # listing that I had, so I didn't really know where to look. It's too bad the rest of the stone has sunken into the ground.
