|Grave of George Wright of Belfast, Ireland.|
William George Wright was a weaver and worked his trade for many years out of his home, which was located about three miles from Corydon, Indiana. He lived to the age of 81, passing away on July 27, 1838. His wife died on Oct. 8, 1829 at the age of 78. They are both buried in the Musselman Cemetery in New Middleton, Indiana.
In 1770, William George and Jane Elizabeth Wright had a son, also named George, who was born in Richmond, N.C. in 1770. If you do the math, this means that his father was 13 and his mother was around 19. This may indicate that they married very young in order to make travel to the colonies easier.
The son, George Wright, eventually married a woman named Sabra Pate, and they had a son named Daniel Pate Wright, who was born in Marion County, South Carolina in 1795. At some point, Daniel Pate Wright moved to Monroe County, Alabama, where he died in November of 1849. Daniel Pate Wright, the grandson of Irish natives, is buried in Bethlehem Cemetery in Monroe County.
