Colwell (aka Caldwell) Wright (1828-1901) and his descendants


Posted below as a downloadable Word document is a brief article about my Wright ancestors from Northern Ireland.

I am Wright descendant on the side of my paternal grandfather, Thomas Gordon Smith (1885-1967). My earliest known Wright ancestors were George Wright and his wife who was perhaps Mary (_____) Wright or Jane (Bonner) Wright. The attached article focuses on the genealogy of their son Colwell (aka Caldwell) Wright (ca. 1826-1901) of Boston, MA, my great-great grandfather.

Additional information about Colwrll Wright is included in my post “Thomas Smith, Jr. (1861-1894) and Jennie (Wright) (Smith) Simpson (1863-1948)”
