Fourth Generation


29. Rebecca WRIGHT22,60 was born on 3 January 1810 in Madison County, Kentucky.7 She died on 20 March 1891 at the age of 81.

1850, Randolph Co MO, Salt Spring Twp, Household 372
John Biswell, age 47, b. KY. Rebeca, age 41, b. KY
Children all born in MO. All listed through James, born in 1849.

Gideon Wright's will in 1858 has two apparent daughters, Rebecca Biswell and "Rebecca Mayo". I wonder if there was an error in Ms. Mayo's given name - either by the lawyer writing the will, or by the clerk when copying.

1860 Census. Rebecca is listed as head of household. Gave her age as 45, b. KY. Jeremiah age 18, W. D. [David] age 16, W. A. [William] age 13 and Rebecca age 7. Apparently the infant James enumerated in 1850 did not survive.
Living next door was son John, J. B. Biswell, age 22, his wife Malvina age 17 and Delia Wright, age 13.

Rebecca WRIGHT and John BISWELL were married on 14 January 1830 in Randolph County, Missouri.7 John BISWELL61, son of Jeremiah BISWELL and Mary HUFF, was born in 1803 in Washington County, Kentucky.7 He died on 1 January 1859 at the age of 56 in Randolph County, Missouri.7
