From FindAGrave site: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=102476287 February 21, 2013 - Thank you watson.gar@gmail.com for: Memoir Methodist Episcopal Church Genesee Conference Journal 1882, Page 100 Rev. Richard Wright was born in Otsego County, New York, in the year 1796. When quite young he removed with his parents to Richmond, Ontario County, in Western New York, where he grew to manhood. At the early age of sixteen he entered the Army in the War of 1812, and served with marked distinction, being in several important engagements. At the close of the war he returned to his home was converted in his nineteenth year, and began his study for the ministry. He joined at conversion the Methodist Episcopal Church, was very soon licensed to preach, and joined the old Genesee Conference in 1820, of which he remained a member till death. His appointments, so far as we have been able to find a record of them, were: Livonia, 1831; LeRoy, 1833; Covington, 1834; Warsaw, 1836 and 1837; LeRoy, 1839; Covington, 1843. In 1845 he took a superannuated relation, and shortly thereafter, removed to Michigan, where, on the 24th day of February, 1882, at Utica, the residence of his son, in the 87th year of his age, he passed peacefully away to his heavenly home. Brother Wright possessed a character that was full of sterling Christian qualities. A few days before his death, he said :I have prayed every day for over sixty years. I believe in prayer and all is well." His abilities as a preacher were above mediocrity and he ranked among the first of his Conference. He was neither flippant nor eloquent, and yet he rose at times to great beauty and pathos of expression, and his sentewnces would thrill and enrapture his audiences; but as a rule his preaching was of the solid substantial and common-sense kind. The Rev. S. E. Warren, who officiated at his funeral, says that "a large number of the old residents of the community were present, and seemed deeply impressed with the solemnity of the occasion, and gave evident expression of profound respect for the departed." Such a life, with so peaceful a close, is a valuable legacy to any ommunity, and while he rests from his labors, his works do follow him. Written by Rev. Allen Plumb Ripley¬†
Note:   Rev. Richard Wright was the son of Abijah and Roxana (Parker) Wright. H
