"I having been trying to break through a wall on my great grandfather. His name is Charles Riley Wright and was born circa 1860 in IN or MI. He lived in Poweshiek Co, IA from about 1891 until his death 1 Jan 1902.
His marriage certificate of 4 Jul…"
I have had 2 people take the YDna test through FTDNA. Neither of them matched anyone in the Wright group. in fact one came up with a null reading. evidently there only about 5 people with such a reading anywhere. I am related to James Corey (cousin) through Elizabeth Wright. My problem is:
William Wright !800 -1850. There is no proof this man ever existed except my great grandfather was his son. I have no record, nothing except negative evidence to prove his existence. My 4th cousin in Texas took the test. He is direct descent from my great grandfather's brother Johnson Wright born 1828 in Sidney, Delaware, New York. My ggrandfather was Alpheus born 1844 in Sidney. My tree is at clancywrightgenealogy.org if you want to look at it. I am at this point not working on the line because I am frustrated!
Archives in Lansing Michigan may hold clues. Most fabulous research place I have ever been. Yes I have been to Allen Library in Indiana too. You have some same surnames as my cousin Shirley Becker, trying to get her to respond to you. SusiCP1@gmail.com
