Biography

  • Fact: Burial Fairview Cemetery, Westford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

Research Notes

There are 2 Ebenezer Wrights that have been conflated in the past. In the VR for Chelmsford[1], 3 are listed, with the 2 in question listed first:

  • "Ebenazar, s. Ebenazar and Hanah, March 5, 1705."
  • "[Ebene. T.C.]sar, s. John and Mari, Dec. 17, 1693."

Which one married Deliverence Stevens[2] has been determined by the grouping of graves at Fairview Cemetery, Westford, where this Ebenezer is directly next to Deliverence, with his parents on the other side.

I visited Fairview Cemetery and took some photos of the group of Wright graves, standing in a row

Ebenzer Wright Family of Westford

in this order:

  1. 1
Ebenezer Wright, 1735
  1. 2
Hannah (Fletcher) Wright Hildreth
  1. 3
Ebenezer Wright (1705-1781)
  1. 4
Deliverence Wright (-1789)
  1. 5 I can't read this one.

I believe Hodgman to therefore be in error.
