Bessie Wright

Bessie Wright lived with Mary Wright. Mary Wright was the daughter of Andrew Jackson "Andy" Wright and Harriet Adams. Mary married William Jackson "Stonewall Jackson" Wright.

It is not known when Bessie came to live with Mary. Mary lived to be 90 and passed Bessie on to her granddaughter, Daisy Wright Nowlin at her death. She is about 145 years old now. Mary kept her hanging on a wall in her home. Daisy keeps her lovingly bundled as the treasure she is.

Mary's grandmother was Susannah Wright.

Look at Bessie....

Do you think there just might be some truth to what we have always heard about Susannah being an Indian?
