M, b. 22 December 1829, d. 10 October 1880
     Henry G Wright was also known as Henry J Wright.2 He was born on 22 December 1829 at Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky; Henry Wright was one of eight children born to Thomas Q and Lucinda Wright. He was born in Kentucky and the family moved to Clay County Missouri between 1848 and 1850. The Wright family lived in the Fishing River Township close to the Cruse family homestead. On Sep 11 1853, Henry married Sarah C Cruse. Since his father-in-law, John Cruse, died three years earlier it appears that Henry assumed a major role in the upkeep and improvement of his mother-in-law's property. He was paid by John Cruse's estate to hole and put up 16 hundred Railes and to reset and put up 3316 old Railes; to repair the house with 600 feet of plank; and to build a stable. In 1860 Henry and Sarah lived in a dwelling between the homes of their two respective mother-in-laws.
At the age of 35, Henry enrolled in Company K of the 82nd Regiment, Enrolled Missouri militia (Union) on October 31 1863. He was discharged on Feb 15 1864, due to disability, with the rank of Corporal.
After the Civil War Henry and Sarah moved across the river to Blue Township, Jackson County, Missouri, where he farmed until his death. On October 22 1880 the Liberty Tribune published some Missouri City items which stated 'Henry Wright, living just across the river, in Jackson County, died last Friday of typho-malarial fever. He was buried by his Masonic brethren of this place. He was the father of 10 children."1 He was born on 4 September 1836 at Burnsville, Braxton County, West Virginia.2,3 He married Sarah G Cruse, daughter of John Cruse and Margaret Jane Barnhill, on 11 September 1853 at Clay County, Missouri.2 Henry G Wright died on 10 October 1880 at Jackson County, Missouri, at age 50.1
