Notes
Nancy Wright of this cemetery was a cousin to Betsy Wright of the old McCrary Cemetery. They were respectively 2nd & 1st wives of Thomas McCrary b. 1789. Nancy bore all of Thomas' children.  The Wright and McCrary's were two of Madison County's earliest pioneer families and owned adjoining plantations; their family histories are closely interwoven as you will see here.

Also see McCrary-Wright Cemetery for more members of the Wright & McCrary Families.
