The Wright Brothers


I keep telling you of my connection to the Wright Brothers.

Here are all the Wright Brothers lined up. A traveling photographer with a hanging backdrop dropped by the Wright family farm and offered to take their picture.

The first Wright brother on the left is Henry Gable Wright, Anna's great grandfather. The others are Bill, Dave, Jim, Kid, and Simon.

Well, where were Wilbur and Orville? Off flying their plane, I bet.

Judy,
That picture was probably taken in 1903 when Orville and Wilbur were at the Outer Banks doing what their brother Henry Gable Wright taught them.... just ignore the little detail that Henry Gable Wright lived in Georgia and Orville and Wilburn lived in Ohio - that's what the Communists want you to believe.

I came across your blog searching on Henry Gable Wright once my efforts to find info on his brother were exhausted. I believe the "Jim" in the picture is my grandmother's grandfather, James Thomas Wright. If so, he ended up in Bleckley Co. Georgia & that's where the family has pretty much stayed. Do you have more information on Isaac and Adeline's parents that you would be willing to share with me?

Thanks,
Kristi

Kristi,

I have a little information of James T. Wright. Not very much, but a little. I would like to know your Wright family line if possible.
