!NOTES:Aaron Alexander Wright was killed by his nephew Auz Wright (Osburn Long Wright, son of Tom Wright). Although it was accidental, it would still be considered murder by today's standards. In an 1977 interview with Alton Wright, my Great grandmother Della Wright George told the story of how it happened. I'll paraphrase it here:
Apparently it was a Sunday, and the family had walked to Church. A.A. Wright left to meet his son Boone Wright at the Post office. As he was walking down the Railroad tracks, he approached the Depot, where two boys were fighting, one was his nephew Auz Wright, the other was Arthur Postell. Auz Wright took out his pistol to hit Postell with it, and it went off and the bullet hit A.A. Wright. It didn't kill him instantly. He died the following morning on 21 Oct 1907. I have no information on whether or not Auz Wright was charged with a crime or not. Luther Crisp said that Auz and his brother Emmett "was about two of the wickedest guys that ever raised up". I seem to recall someone telling me that Auz Wright himself was killed by one of his Burchfield cousins. I can't recall the details now.;
