by a very educated scribe- there are other entries in same scripts but not as Fancy -as-below

At Harrisburg, Illinois Zip 62946 *see notes which Eliza-4 lines below

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
==========================================================
The Bible gives : FORNA WRIGHT died Feb 24 1944 at Harrisburg, Ill. Age 85 yrs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All these dates are in this bible -as are the Descendants of the other 3 Male - Wright children
Traced to date.
And the Deal family
Plus branch families

Harry Wright had a son Everett in Evansville ,In Everett Wright - born May 20 1924 d.~ 1944
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now there are may more entries in my Grandmothers handwriting (Edith Wright): of our families-Deals
and Wrights- Wheelers-after in Gerry Wright’s hand note We probably have 85 to 125? more names? to go in this document
the old bible is too fragile to handle ;
*Have now traced Maxam name and greatest effort will be to complete the Wright names

Any way our interest is to trace The Maxame names
we have ref. several spellings ie Maxime -Mixame
but we believe because of the deliberate style of the scribe It is correct pronunciation.
as Maxame or Maxime
And found out that it was MAXAM but in old script was
Maxam~ --as history went on from Maxam in marriage ---there are a lot of Maxam names in the history of Gibson County,
Indiana 47670 these people lived their full lives there, from cradle to grave.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated --Thanx!!! Roy G Deal
p.s. if You can't help perhaps you might redirect or correct us.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
at Gibson county site We found the marriage of
George N Maxam and Elizabeth Wright which explained
the different name at start of Bible--this had perplexed us for Quite some time.
Probably a mystery for 180 years.


We will move on with some other note --It seems that the first two Entries were bigger and more richly written than the next Group which were in script- down to William Key b. 1857
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Then the names are in even smaller script
After Lucinda the old inks were not used again.
At this time we might say Lucinda is a big mystery? b.? And d.?
And one other observation- is that there were not good supplies of inks, and for that matter scribes
In the Indian territories.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At this time-We am putting in all info on generations after above Start of bible –plus We will get Burial sites and other info in these documents at yahoo briefcase site. (Below)
*How it works is this –the brief case is accessible to anyone. Now if you are a Yahoo user it will qualify you to download info at any time to your PC. The beauty of this is that we can have contributors that are any where in the good old USA, and able to document their entries . Now even if you are on another E mail system we can enable up to 10 people that are able to request and receive these Documents. Our goal is to document
And get it out to everyone On WWW for all future generations.- As we roll along this winter.

Note : My son Jeremiah “Jay” is taking pictures of the bible-- and the digital pictures will point out the start –
1st 120 years of the bible and document it as valid-but the entries after our grand mother Edith took over about 1915 are aged and hard to read but can be extracted only with human eye (I think-but pics maybe will be ok). Note if pics ok we have 200 years documented
And with the Wright/Deal relatives still living can be improved . So to cut to the chase this will be a document
of history with documented improvements and the improvement will be evident and validated by the
jpg pictures of the bible and references on the WWW. Roy G. Deal can be reached at [contact link] or phone1 812-401 2691 . We will have family contributors and some contributors outside family to be listed as
This doc. Evolves over the next few years.
I know we will have aboard my sisters Linda Sue and Dixie Bell Deal and Cousins Sandra Wright, Virginia Ann Wright, Billy Wright, Fred Wright and Brenda Wright.
They will provide the branches that are specific to their immediate families and other important details of memory for inclusion.
Note as Edith Wright and Fred Wright left the farm in ~ 1956-57 – the stewardship of this bible passed into my mother Elsie Geraldine’s hands and –later into the hands of Linda and Dixie Deal’s hands since ~ 1985.
Email contributors contacts will be provided with permission only as we go along. I am working on a profile sheet for each person at my site –if you see an error or have input contact me –THANX ! Rgd

In Reply to: George and Indiana (Leathers) Wright m. Nov 5,1864 by: Debbie Fishback

I don't know anything about this family , but here are a few facts for you to consider.

1880 census-- shows that wife ? Indiana had remarried to a Henry Beck, but her children are living with them--they include Sallie, James, Willis, Noble and George. The family is then in Patoka, Gibson Co., IN.
The 1880 census shows that the father of these Wright Children, whom I assume must be your George, was born in state of IN..
INDIANA Beck, who I believe probably was Indiana Wright, is 30, so she was b. about 1850.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1850 Census has a James Wright and wife Eliza (i have iserted JANE (phillips) rgd)(i have inserted also they were married 1850) in Whiteriver Township, Gibson Co., IN. They have a son George, age 7 months, and as best I can make out the handwriting the middle initial is either a W or an M and I think it's a W. That would make him about the same age as Indiana ? (*not the state).
-----------------------------------------------------------------
1850 Census James is 26 and Eliza is 21. They were both also born in IN.
In the 1880 census James and Eliza are still there in Whiteriver Township and there is a daughter Lucinda, age 20. (* in our bible she was b. 1860) ? 8 th 1860 ? HAZELTON is major city on WWW

According to Tartt's "History of Gibson County" dated 1884 Indiana Leathers was the daughter of William Leathers and Mary Severns. Mary's father was John Severns one of the first settlers of Gibson County Indiana. William Leathers was born in Kentucky in 1806 the son of Morgan Leathers. The family moved to Gibson County in 1810

Debbie Markwell My Granny and Popaw

Around 1920, a 17-year old John Wright saw the prettiest little gal he ever did see standing on a fence rail, she was leaning over the fence and her long pigtails were hanging down over her shoulders. He said that is the gal I’m going to marry one of these days. Four years later he married that pretty little gal, Lillian Curtis, and the rest is history.

Lillian Curtis was born July 29, 1907, in Owen County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of Richard Harvey and Fannie Wright Curtis. Richard Harvey Curtis was the son of John Wesley and Rebecca Pickett Curtis. Fannie Wright was the daughter of Milton Thomas Wright Jr. (Lorenzo Dow Wright’s brother) who was the son of Milton Thomas Wright who was the son of John Raglen Wright. (John Wright and Fannie Wright Curtis were first cousins.)

While John was courting Lillian, she was also being wooed by another young man. Her parents thought this young man would be more suited for her as his family had a little money and he would be able to take care of her. Lillian’s brothers kept after her telling her to stay away from that Wright boy, that he would not amount to anything. She chose John. As it turned out the other young man is the one who did not to amount to anything. When we asked granny his name she never would say.

Lillian told John, let’s get married. John told her he had nothing to offer her – she told him, we’ve got two hands, we both can work, and on October 25, 1924, John Wright wed Lillian Curtis.

John Wright told that he left very early on the morning of October 25, 1924, to go pick up his bride, there was still dew on the ground. On the way to Georgetown, he saw blazes and smoke coming from his brother’s (Milton Wright) house. He stopped to help but was worried about getting his brand new white shirt dirty. Milton’s wife (Lila Belle Curtis Wright, Lillian’s cousin, also called by the nickname, Jack ) had small children to care for and she was not able to help Milton put out the fire. John and his brother grabbed buckets and ran down the hill to the creek for water and put out the fire. It was just a stove fire that got out of control while cooking breakfast so it was put out quickly and his shirt did not get too dirty. By helping put the fire out, he was almost late to his own wedding. He went to pick up Lillian and they went to Georgetown to get married. Granny always told that popaw was almost late for his own wedding.

They drove the family Model T to Georgetown to get married. He first went to the Christian Church parsonage to ask Reverend Ira Boswell to marry them. When he arrived a colored girl told them that Reverend Boswell was at the football game. He said that he would just save his $2.00 and they got married at the courthouse.

When he and Lillian returned home the family had a party for them. He said one of the things they would do is ride the groom on a rail. Some of the men went down to the fence by the creek and brought back a rail. They put him on it and then one man got on either end and hoisted you on the rail up to their shoulders. He said that weddings were different back then. A person would get married on a Saturday and by Monday you would be back to work in the fields.”
