This memorial was originally listed as Louise Wright, but I have changed it to Lavar T. Wright. Below are the reasons for this change.

Murray Cemetery Records had a record in their computer system and their online records for Louise T. Wright.

An examination of the original cemetery records showed the name is actually written as Louie T. Wright.

Additionally, those original books showed his father as Ben Wright, death due to Enteritis and the attending physician was Dr. Rothwell. Death date in one book was listed as August 13, 1909, in the other it was August 31, 1909.

These all matched very closely a Death Certificate for Lavar T. Wright.

There are clear Birth and Death Certificates for Lavar T. Wright, showing parents, birth and death dates, place of birth and death and burial in Murray Cemetery on 15 August 1909. There is no plot within the cemetery listed in any of the records.

It is unknown how the name became listed in the Cemetery records as "Louie" unless that was a nickname or a clerical error.

A search of Find-a-Grave showed no listing for Lavar Wright, but there was a memorial for Louise Wright. The inquiry with the Cemetery Office followed, revealing that the written records for "Louise Wright" matched close enough to merit changing this memorial from Louise Wright to Lavar T. Wright as indicated.

Any additional information from other sources will be accepted gladly.

There is a headstone for his parents who were buried in 1947, but there is no headstone for Lavar T. Wright and as indicated there is no record of the location of his burial.
