Joel and Susannah Wright's daughter, Margaret, never married. She did have a daughter named Sidney. The father is unknown. Sidney had a son by William Luntz. That son was William S. "Bill" Wright. He married Letty Bates, the granddaughter of John Wallis and Sarah Waltrip Bates. Her father was James Bates who was murdered by the home guard during the civil war. Her mother was Bessie Adams. I just put that in to tie in others I have already written about. Bill and Letty had 11 children.
One of them was Samuel J. Tilden Wright. He married Lydia Margaret Craft. They had nine children that I am aware of so far.
I was looking though the pictures I took at Green Acres Cemetery. When they are digital they are all named DSN001, 002, etc. When I put them on the computer I change the names to something a bit more meaningful like Samuel J. Tildon Wright 1878 1974 tombstone. I was renaming some of those pictures today while my dad slept and when I got near Samuel Tildon, Jr's I had a laugh. Near or next to his grave was that of his sister, Seldom Wright Price. Seeing is believing.
I didn't have much time to work on them, but I found that Seldom was born on May 27, 1918. She married a Price, of course, and died on September 30, 2006. She was living in Florida at the time of her death. I don't know her husband's name. He may still be alive. I can only imagine the sense of humor that Seldom must have had in her life.
I don't remember in which family, but I know I ran across one relative who had 18 or 20 children and he named them from the encyclopedia. Two of the girls just had awful names. They never married. I always thought their names had something to do with how their lives turned out. When I come across them, I will defintely put them in a blog.
Seldom had five older brothers: William, Nicholaus, Harvey Charles and.......... Commonly. After Seldom were brothers Hilliard and S. Tilden Wright Jr. and sister Hennie Wright.
Samuel S T Wright, the father, was a Baptist minister, a farmer, a real estate dealer and a contractor for road construction. At least that is what I picked up from the census records and a few other tidbits I found.
Seeing Seldom Wright just made me giggle.
