Marryin' Booker Part 2

Booker Wright

Booker's home

One of the readers of this blog is a granddaughter of Marryin' Booker Wright. Remember Booker was married about seven times. He had at least ten children with his second wife, Cordelia.

L-R George, Cordelia holding Johnnie, Andrew, Booker holding Jack, and Tilson.

George was born to them on September 7, 1907. He married Opal Mae Meade from Weeksbury, Floyd County, Kentucky. They had at least seven children: Alice, Chester, George Jr., Juanita, Wendell and Winifred Gayle. There is one daughter whose name I do not know.

Gayle, as she is known, lives in Michigan. She has attended the Wright reunion at the Breaks in the past. She has sent me some pictures of her grandfather, Booker. I wanted to share them with you all.

Booker and Uncle Ed. I was told that Ed was Booker's son by a wife before Cordelia.
