Henry D. Wright
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 27, 1834
Hancock County
Illinois, USA
Death: Dec. 11, 1909
Fort Jones
Siskiyou County
California, USA

Henry's middle name was his mother's maiden name, and both are found with several spelling variations. In the Great Registers of 1879, 1888 and 1892, it was spelled Donohoe, Donahoe and Donahue, respectively. Another variation is Donohue and some sources suggest Donoho.

Although Henry's obituary stated he was born in Smith County, Tennessee, Federal Censuses (with the exception of 1850) and the Great Registers consistently indicated that he was born in Illinois. This is supported by other documentation, including his father's obituary, which reported that the family (who had previously lived in Smith County, Tennessee) left Hopkins County, Kentucky, in 1833 and arrived in Hancock County, Illinois, in March of that year. They settled in a township that wouldn't have a name until 1850.

Henry left his father's home around 1852-53, probably in the company of one or more of his brothers, joining the throngs headed for the gold fields. He married, raised his family and spent the rest of his life in Siskiyou County.
