DESCENDANTS OF ELIZABETH GRAVES AND JAMES WRIGHT OF CT & OH

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Elizabeth Graves (1) was born about 1765 in CT, and died after 1850 in OH. She married James Wright, son of James Wright and Elizabeth Lee, probably 1789-1793. It has been said that they married 28 Feb. 1821 in Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH, but that does not seem possible, considering that one of their daughters married in 1821. James Wright was born 6 Oct. 1769 in Litchfield, Litchfield Co., CT, and died about 1855 in Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH.

They were in the 1850 census for Harpersfield, OH, page 408, living with Jonathan Wright, 40, presumably their son, and his family. James Wright was in the 1840 census for Harpersfield, with 1 male 70-80, and 1 female 70-80. He was in the 1830 census for Harpersfield, with 1 male 20-30, 1 male 30-40, 1 male 60-70, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 15-20, and 1 female 60-70. He was in the 1820 census for Harpersfield, with 2 males 10-16, 1 male 16-26, 1 male 45+, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-26, and 1 female 45+.

One of the sons was supposedly William Wright, born in OH, and died 18 Feb. 1849 in Ashtabula Co., OH. The daughter, born 1794-1804 according to the census records, is assumed to be Huldah, since her husband was born about 1801. (R‑1)
