Amos Sr's brother Philbert and eldest son John and families joined Amos in settling this region of Indiana about 1808-09. During the War of 1812, fear of Indian raids caused the Wright families to temporarily live within Fort Hill (which they built with other nearby families), where Rev. John Wright's eldest daughter, Lavina was born in 1813. (Source: LDS Microfilm #1036598, "Pioneers in Area" by Helen Burgess, extracted by Ellie Stites Swanger.)1 Elizabeth Lowe was also known as Elizabeth Lane.2 She was born in 1766 at Rowan County, North Carolina.1 She married Amos Wright, son of Richard Wright Sr. and Ann ?, in 1782 at North Carolina.3 Elizabeth Lowe and Amos Wright 112 - Amos and Elizabeth moved to Powell's Valley, VA where they lived a few years then they moved to Wayne County, KY.

Census Records | 5,255]Vital Records | Family Trees & Communities | Immigration Records | Military Records Directories & Member Lists | Family & Local Histories | 5,255]Newspapers & Periodicals | Court, Land & Probate | Finding Aids.3 Benjamin was listed as the head of a family on the 1790 Census at Randolph County, North Carolina. Benjamin Wright 1 male over 16 3 males under 16, 6 females total 10.6 He married Patsey Morgan in 1795 at North Carolina.1 Benjamin Wright lived in 1820 at Indiana; moved to Indiana about 1820.3 Benjamin was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census at Wayne Township, Marion County, Indiana. He is listed as between 80 and 90.7 He died on 4 October 1837 at Putnam, Marion County, Indiana; At His Son Adam's House.1 He was buried at Indiana; Old Union Cemetery, Between Speedway and Clermont.1 He , p. 11 Benjamin Wright, Sr, son of Richard Wright, Sr. and wife, (Ann) or Nancy Jane was born 1752, died at his son Adam's near Indianapolis, Indiana about 1842, according to Grant Wright's records. We do not know where Benjamin was born. The first deed to his father in Rowan Co NC was dated 1762. Benjamin is named first in his father's will, dated 3 Sep 1784, and given two hundred acres of land on the Waters of Deep River in Randolph Co NC including the plantation whereon he used to live. Ben lived in this section of NC many years and relatives, still there, say Ben Wright Mountain in Randolph Co was named for him. He moved to Indiana in 1820's with his second wife and their children. Many of his first children had already settled in Indiana. We find him listed in the Indiana census of 1830, in Wayne Twp, Marion Co next to his youngest daughter Celia Wright and husband Nathaniel Bell. He was then between 80-90, and wife between 60-70. Nearby were his sons, Jordan and Judge Adam Wright. The 1840 census of Marion Co Ind gives all these children, but Benjamin Wright. With Jordan's family, however, is listed a female between 70-80. This was probably Jordan's mother. Deed records show that Adam Wright's farm was just south of Trader's Point, Marion Co Ind on the Lafayette Rd, now called Bush farm. Osee Knouf could find no cemetery on this farm. Recently found that Adam and wife were buried in Old Union Cemetery, now between Speedway and Clermont, Ind. Adam died not long after his father and probably they were buried in the same place. There is an old slab next to Adam's grave, so worn that a tracing shows only, A. B. Wright died 1837. The Indiana State Library has records of this cemetery which was copied a few years ago they say A. B. Wright died Oct 4, 1857. 3 and 5 would look something alike on an old slab. He lived to be about 86 years old. U. S. Wright of Maryville, Mo, grandson of Ben, Jr collected much data on Benjamin Sr from his elderly Aunts, daughters of Ben Jr. They said Benjamin, Sr's first wife was BArbara, and his second Patsey. They remembered their Aunts, Sarah Hill, Martha Moss and Elizabeth Copple lived near enough to often walk over to visit, in Putnam Co Ind. They gave the list of Benjamin Wright Sr's children which follows. He married the second time in 179§. Levi Woodrum said years ago three of Richard Wright's children married Morgan girls, Benjamin, Richard, and William. Benjamin Wright Sr is said to hae fought in the battle of Guilford County Court House in the Rev War. He was paid for services according to NC Rev Army Accounts, Vol XI, page 73, folio 1; and Vol XII, page 21, folio 2. One dated Aug 1783, other not dated. Copies of these records are filed at Memorial Continental Hall in Washingtøn DC under Nat DAR No 291647. The publisher of this, said descendant of Benjamin Sr's son James has proved that Jame's mother was a Morgan. Her younger brother, Elijah Morgan, settled near his nephew James Wright in Monroe County, Ind. 1817. Barbara Morgan Wright and Elijah Morgan's parents were James and Mary Morgan.
