Biography

"Col. Lyman Wright, born May 8, 1793; married, April 16, 1817, Betsey, born Aug. 29, 1794: died June 21, 1880; daughter of Charles and Beulah (Stone) Bowker of Fitzwilliam. He died Dec. 1, 1866. He was the son of Thomas Wright and learned the tanner and curriers’ trade in Templeton and came to Troy in 1815, purchasing the Warren stand and Winch tan yard of David White and Joshua Harrington. He resided in what was the Warren tavern, and in 1841 he covered the frame with brick walls and remodelled the inside. This is the house now owned by Thomas Birtwhistle. The store which had been attached to the north end of the tavern he also removed around to the south and made it into a dwelling house, now owned by Thomas Mitchell. In 1836 he built the sawmill, and shortly after, the Charles Carpenter house. At that time the only road to the premises was a common footpath ; the highway by there and past the blanket mills was not laid out until 1850. He carried on the tanning business for several years, selling out to Francis Foster, his partner. Col. Wright was an active, enterprising man and held various offices, both civil and military, and was much esteemed by his fellow citizens.
