"The Sam Wrights of Yukon, Ok"

Sam Wright

Yukon, Ok 73099


We have been tracing the Wright family from Rockbridge County,Va. This is as far back as we have been able to go. Thompson A. Wright was married to Sarah A. (Norcross)Wright. They had 8 children before Thompson Wright died in the 1850's. My great grandfather William Norcross Wright served in the Civil War and was captured by the Union and held prisoner of war for 2 years, being released in April 1865 when the war ended. He married Catherine Sandidge of Rockbridge County, Va. in 1861. They moved to Montgomery County Indiana in the 1870's and then to Indian Territory now known as Atoka County,Oklahoma. We have found the cemetery where Wm. N. Wright was buried in Atoka County but do not know where "Katie" was buried. It was found that Wm. N. Wright attended a reunion of the 14th Calvary of Va. in 1895. He died 2 years later. Sarah A. Norcross, was from Burlington County, New Jersey her father was William Norcross and his father was Samuel Norcross. If you can be of help please email us.
