His name was William Sidney Wright
Thank you!
I wonder if your Wright family is related to my Wright family. My brickwall is Ellis Wright b.May 1814 South Carolina buried Union Grove Cemetery in Paris, Lamar County, Texas. Would like to know his parents' names.

Welcome to G2G forum, Tessa.

Your great grandfather Thomas was the youngest of the 3 children that Sidney and Nannie had.

The older was a girl named Mirtie. The other one was a boy named Melson C.

Melson was born in 1898 and died on 17 Jul 1954.

Nannie died 29 Jul 1934. There is an obituary with more information on her in the following FindAGrave record.

It is said that your 2nd great grandfather, William Sidney, died on 1904.

I hope that the records above help in your search.
