#16650866 - I have sent an edit deleting his father. His father, Isaac T. Bridges [1811-1889] This Isaac T. was born in 1870, not the same. Thanks. Eileen Bridges

Jeremiah 'Jerry' Wright
Hi. Just came across your find-a-grave site for 'Jerry' at
Created by: Connecting Families
Record added: Jun 01, 2012
Find A Grave Memorial# 91155488

I'm hoping that you might be related - 'cause I'm looking for an obituary that could lead to names of his family - siblings, in particular. It seems that 'Jerry' may be one of the last few of Rev. Richard Wright's children to have died.

Through various documents, etc., I have been able to identify about half - maybe a few more - of his children. I have also found a 'son' whom I strongly believe might be Philbert Wright, b. abt 1802 in NC before Richard and Elizabeth left that state. However, I cannot establish proof.

I have been able to translate Richard's estate, but no children are named. Two other Wright's are named - Peter and Philbert. The estate doc is as follows:

Estate of Rev. Richard Wright
"I Samuel R Cravins, clerk of the Probate Court in and for the County of Greene in the State of Indiana, do certify that it having been made satisfactorily to appear that Richard Wright, late of said County, has recently died intestate, leaving his estate in a condition requiring immediate administration therein that in pursuance with the form of the Statute in such Statute in such case made and provided administration of the goods, chattels, rights, credits moneys and effects which were of the said Richard Wright at the time of his death is granted unto PETER WRIGHT until the next term of this court, he having filed bond in the penalty of four hundred dollars with PHILBERT WRIGHT security thereto conditioned according to claim and took upon himself the requisite oath as such administration according to the Statute in such Statute in such case made and provided witness my hand this 23 day of November 1843. S.R. Cravins"

ANY information you might be able to provide on Jerry would be SO greatly appreciated. If you would like to contact me direct, feel free to do so at

The photo of the monument does not belong to me but I did copy it from the website I will send it to you so you can see it if you will send me your email mine is

I'm sure that what it is that the monument looks like now is not what it was supposed to be when it was first placed on the grave
thank you

Everything I have ever seen for these 3 folks have their last/maiden name spelled Beaver. I know their ancestors spelled it Beavers and I even seen Beevers. I was pretty sure I had it right with Beaver. If you are family and are sure it is Beavers not Beaver please let me know. If you have documents I have not seen again let me know. I am all about being accurate, so I appreciate your suggested corrections.

I attempted to contact you via you g-mail. I was unable for reasons, I am unsure of.

I will hold off on any actions till I hear from you. Looking forward to your response...

I have added the info, let me know if you want a transfer.

I haven't talked to you for a while. I hope you are doing okay.

I believe you are correct in your assumption of the incorrect cemetery listed on the death certificate as Indian Creek Bap. It would seem odd that he would not be buried in the same cemetery with his father, mother and wife (who had just died a few months earlier). It is more likely that the funeral director listed the wrong cemetery. The memorial at Indian Creek has been deleted. Good catch!

RE: Dye family
Yes, I am related. Kinneth and Charity are my fourth great grandparents. My line to them is through their son James.

Ha Ha, I hear ya, I do the same thing!


P.S. I have been writing a book for a long time and it is a compilation of all my daily Facebook columns. So far I have written about 170 columns, but once in a while I get tired and have to re-post a previous column, but for the most part they are new. But writing is sure hard work!

Are you on Facebook?

The info on the edit you sent is actually for Kathleen's sister, Wanda. I did not create Wanda's memorial, but all the info you sent is already on her memorial. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say! Have a beautiful day!

The Corbins
Hey, thanks for that picture of the Corbins on Jesse and Delilah's memorial (my 4gr-grandparents). I have the same one, though without the names. Never knew who all those people were! Do you have a connection to the Corbins? I have another photo of James and several unidentified men, would love to know who they are too. Thanks! DL

Hi Sandra,

The only difference I noticed was that the newspaper spelled the mother's first name Harriette and the transcript spelled it Harriett.

Have a beautiful day!

Hi Sandra,

Thank you for the information, I have added it to her memorial. That is really strange. I wonder if she was moved to a different cemetery.

Have a wonderful Christmas.
