Winfield was born on 22 Mar 1768 in Stafford, Virginia. On 29 Apr 1795 in Madison, VA he married Judith Tinsley. They had at least one child, a daughter. He passed away on 24 Jul 1823 in Madison, Virginia.

Note: there are numerous records showing a "Winfield Jett Wright" in Georgia. It is unclear if this is the same as our Winfield or not as there is no indication he ever moved to Georgia. And the records are prior to when his wife Judith passed.

The parents' "confirmed with DNA" indicators were removed because the DNA confirmation is undocumented.

Please see this G2G article on DNA confirmation for more information and guidance on proper documentation.

Thank you.

P.S., As it states in the Help for Confirmed with DNA:

"If there isn't a proper source citation the "Confirmed with DNA" relationship status should be removed (by you or another member)."
