By Rev. Stephen Wright, of Glen’s Falls, N.Y.

<following exerpted from the full document>

6. Samuel2 Wright (Abel1), b. June 17, 1679, at S.; m. Mary Case, of Lebanon, Nov. 27, 1710, and had three children recorded there, as given below. He must have followed his brother Abel to Lebanon, as the records show a deed of two hundred acres of land from Josiah Dewey and William Clarke to Samuel Wright, dated January 30, 1702. (See Old Records, pp. 84, 85.) Little more can be said of him than to give the names of his children, and that he married, Dec. 13, 1727, Anna Loomis, of L., and that he lived at Norwich awhile. His children were:

i. Aaron, b. March 29, 1713.

ii. John, b. Sept. 23, 1716.

iii. Mary, b. May 10, 1721.

By second wife:

iv. Rebecca, b. Sept. 24, 1728.

v. Elijah, b. Aug. 14, 1730.

vi. Anna, b. Oct. 7, 1732.

vii. Samuel, b. Feb. 17, 1735.

viii. Eleazer, born Aug. 3, 1739.
