Caleb Bright 1831 was married to Melissa Crum but she died in 1867.  I do not see his next Tennessee marriage about 1869 which would be Susie's mother.

I am asking for descendant Kristi Quist.  thank you.  Please advise.  thanks

Melissa Bright was still alive in 1870: 

"United States Census, 1870," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFSH-LW9 : 12 April 2016), Melissa Bright in household of Caleb Bright, Mississippi, United States; citing p. 26, family 15, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 552,219.

 

In fact, she seems to have been counted twice.  Here she is with Susan:

"United States Census, 1870," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFSH-KXK : 12 April 2016), Malissy Bright in household of Caleb Bright, Mississippi, United States; citing p. 8, family 17, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 552,219.
