Wright Genealogy - Western North Carolina

Welcome to my Wright web pages. I am interested in all Wright families of Western North Carolina, 1700's through 1880. My own Wright ancestors lived in Surry Co., NC, Cherokee Co., NC and Union Co., GA.

My most recent Wright ancestor is my Great Grandmother Della Christmas Wright (1896-1982) who married Charles Noten George in 1918. They lived in Cherokee Co., NC which is where she was born. She is a daughter of Aaron Alexander Wright (1847-1907) and Annis Dulcenia Waters. Aaron is a son of James S. Wright (1813-1902) and Caroline Winfrey. James was born in Surry Co., NC a son of Aaron Wright (c1770-1820s) and Mary Murphy.

Aaron Wright's parents are unknown.


All my Wrights can be found in my online database.

Wright DNA Project - Use DNA testing to break down your genealogical brick walls and find out which genetic branch of the family you are part of. Click link for details. I'm not directly involved in the Wright project, but I highly recommend it.  No one from my line (Surry, Wilkes and Cherokee Counties) has tested yet.
