Notes
a. Note:   1830 Fentress Co, TN census Moses Wright 50-60 b. 1770-1780; 11100001-200001; Page 3. Autobiography of Rev. A. B. Wright. The Moses who married Margaret Edmondson never made it to TN. He died in NC. Page 1, Autobiography of Rev. A. B. Wright states, " I am inclined to think he was born and ever lived in NC. His father came from Ireland. He became a local preacher in the Methodist Episcopal Church and traveled as supply for Bishop Asbury. Pg. 2--"He (Moses) died before John was full grown, leaving some small children on Grandmother's hands to rear. My father emigrated to East Tennessee into what is now Anderson or Union County, when quite a young man, my father's name being John Wright. Pg. 3--After the children were pretty well grown they emigrated to East Tennessee, near to where father, and I should have said Uncle Robert Wright, came--- for they came together--- and I think Grandmother Wright and the whole family were soon in East Tennessee." Ann Nita [email protected] -- We have Moses as having been born about 1743 and marrying Margaret about 1760-65. The children are listed in the book as Jesse (abt. 1765), James (abt. 1775), John W. (abt 1783), Robert (abt 1785), Jeremiah (abt 1787), and Aaron (abt.1789) The girls were Sarah (abt.1767) , Zilphia (abt. 1780), and Martha (abt. 1773). We're using the son's approximate ages according to census and other data to date Moses and Margaret. A. B. usually listed the children's names in birth order, however, he always listed the girls separately from the boys. Census and other data confirms that A. B. was usually correct.
