Additional Information

Robert Henry Wright:

Notes:

!NOTES:Born in Cleveland Co., NC according to his 1850 census entry. Cleveland was still part of Lincoln and Rutherford Counties at the time of his birth.

He was listed twice in 1850, once with parents (presumably his parents) in Buncombe, and again as a laborer in Macon. I could be wrong about both entries being the same person, but I think they are;
