Biography

Elizabeth "Betsey" Wright was born about 1795 in Washington County, New York state the daughter of Edward Wright and Freelove Bennett. [1]

Betsey married Benjamin Bristol about 1815.

Benjamin and Betsey lived at Annsville, Oneida, New York at the time of the 1850 United States census where Benjamin is a farmer. No value is listed for real estate owned. Five people who appear to be their children: Miles, Alford, Nicholas, [male name undetermined] and Esther Bristol, are also listed in this household.[2]

In 1860, the census shows Benjamin and Betsey still at Annsville with Nicholas now 23 the only other member of their household. Benjamin and Nicholas have the occupation of farmer laborer and Benjamin has a personal estate of $100.[3]

The 1865 New York state census finds the three of them at Annsville living in a frame house valued at $750, but they do not own land. Benjamin is a day laborer and son Walter N. age 27 is a farmer, but also marked as in the army.[4]
