Hi - just came across your site for Isaac Wright
and wonder where you found the initial 'N' used?

I'm wondering if there was found some document that indicate that he had a middle name/initial. I'm not sure if at that early time the use of middle names or initials were commonly used.

I know that in early times the 'mark' made on documents - sometimes indicated that the person could read/write was regarding their first name. Most who could not read/write made their 'mark' as a simple 'x' - to indicate they understood what was written before them.

Hi Carol,
I have tranferred her memorial to you, since you have the rest of the family. Just a note: always better to add changes, family links by using the Edit button on a memorial. Less work on the receiving end.

RE: Isaac Wright
I turned over the management to you as a direct descendant of Isaac. I've done some work on the Wright line and added and found many memorials but your a cousin to my husband Tim Wright, great grandson of Isaac's brother Amos Milton JR.! I have put in a request for Isaac's son Levi Peter to also be connected to his father.

I added them to his bio, as I couldn't find a memorial for them. If you have their #, let me know. Dave

I hit the wrong button. I am looking for living relatives. Apparently I am the 1st cousin once removed from Dorothy. Joshua Curtis was my great grandfather, Wm. H Curtis was my grandfather and I am the oldest daughter of Wm.'s youngest son, Fred. I would love to talk or email with you. I am on facebook.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

I have her birthdate as April 1 (1778). There may be three records of her, we should try to reach a consensus.
