Jay H Wright, thanks for the information. I am also looking at having my nephew do his DNA since his father was a Wright from Texas line from New England. I am waiting his sending me his lineage. His Dad was a good friend that married my sister.  USN.

I am also working with cousin Shirley Becker on her William ? Wright in NY that she has never gotten anything concrete on his line and has done dna also.  SusiCP1@gmail.com

is also another of my emails.  Since Cox has been upgrading mail has been horrid.
