Bio Photo Blacksmith Snow forged to the top!

The smith, a mighty man is he,
With large and sinewy hands;
And the muscles of his brawny arms,
Are strong as iron bands.

This describes my father Burgess Snow

It is sad to say but as time marches and as family and friends pass on the be with the Lord Jesus, it all we can hang onto is the memories.

"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."

RE: Richard Wright
Thank you so much for the information.

RE: Sharing information
Sorry to hear about your Snow family, but I often wonder that - once the families left home or separated - if they ever saw each other again. Travel back then was not as it is now.

It appears that Richard Wright's [both Sr. & Jr.]may have traveled to pretty much the same areas and may have had the security of family nearby. The evidence of many second cousins marrying is a good indicator.

The book is super-cheap if you shop around - amazon and abebooks are the best resources.

Sharing information
Hi. You've been so kind in sharing information with me, I'd like to share a book that I bought a couple of years age that has been a valuable resource - general - not family specific - if you don't already have it...

The book is "Pitfalls in Genealogical Research" by Milton Rubicam. I don't expend a lot of $$ in research documents, but it can be bought on for a few dollars. I bought a 'good condition used copy' for several dollars and it's well worth a lot more than I paid for it.

There are a lot of interesting topics but the one that struck me most is the 'Three Brothers' syndrome. I know you have seen "3 brothers [or perhaps 4 brothers] came to America and each brother went in separate directions. The book explains the rationale behind it - and how some family lines may have developed as s result of it.

Have a Blessed Resurrection Sunday.

RE: Ann Wright
Ok, I came up with that name from another tree on Ancestry. I did not know about this so I sent another thing for her name. Please decline the thing I sent you. Also, will you please send me your sources for more information because she is a mystery to me.

RE: Ann Wright
Since we know that Richard, Sr. was b. closer to 1726, the 'submission' for Ann may be approximate. I have a policy that before I enter anything sent by someone else, [especially if it's someone I don't know] I ask for verification and the source from which it came. Most times I never hear from them again.

Just an FYI - since Richard married Ann in MD [that's where first son, Benjamin, was b., it bears to reason that Ann [whatever her last name may be] would have been from MD, as well. People just didn't travel like they do today.

I've seen far-out researchers indicate that Richard, Sr. was b. in England, traveled to America - traveled to Wales - back to America - back to England and ended up in Surry County, NC. Then, when he came back to America, he bought 3 brothers with him and when they got off 'the boat' they scattered north, south, ease and west and never ran into each other again.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Glad you question :^) !!!

RE: Nancy or Ann
Thank you for your kind words. They are appreciated.

It was not necessary to adjust your site - it is a good one. There are various researchers who have the same thing. My only reasoning for not using Nancy was not finding any basis for that name for 'Ann'. Her name is only found in 2 sources that anyone has found - on a deed when they first entered NC, leaving Virginia in early 1760's and the other was on his will. Otherwise, no information on her - not even a marriage license or bond in Maryland where they would have been married.

Thank you
... for sending the email and thank you for taking the time to write. Your note received

Find A Grave contributor BeNotForgot has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Nancy Wright. Email address of contributor:

Their suggestion: same as This is the memorial you prepared [above] for ‘Ann’ [as named in Richard, Sr.'s will] who was the wife of Richard Wright, SR. [Her name may have been Nancy, but all that's been found on her shows name as Ann. Her surname has never been determined.]

The memorial I prepared at – is for Nancy Morgan Wright, the first wife of Richard Wright, JR., [the 3rd son of ‘Ann’ and Richard, Sr.]

They appear similar, but are two different people.
