Joshua Wright1

Male
b. 1846, d. 2 July 1905


Family Susannah May Werts b. 24 September 1850, d. 1 April 1930
Marriage* 10 December 1869 or 30 December 1869  Muskingum Co., OH, Joshua Wright & Susan Werts, 30 Dec 1869, Muskingum, Ohio, Principal=Susannah May Werts1,2 
Children  1. George Alfred Wright b. 17 Feb 1870, d. 7 Dec 1920
  2. Jacob J. Wright b. 24 Jan 1874, d. b 1930
  3. Bruce Lane Bradford Wright b. 5 Mar 1881, d. 13 Dec 1943

Note*   It appears Joshua and Susannah might have been divorced before his death. His census record in 1900 says he is widowed but she obviously wasn't. There is a Mary Wright in Zanesville, born Sept 1855, aged 44, divorced with three children, all living. She is a servant for James and Katherine Lee. The age is wrong but everything else matches. Susannah's death certificate on the other hand says she is widowed.
