==Middle life== Several of Malinda's siblings and her parents were members of the Cumberland Presyterian Church at Norris Creek in Lincoln County, Tennessee. In 1853, several of these got a letter of dismissal, so they could rejoin the same church in the area to which they were going. Sometime between 1850 and 1854 the entire family left Lincoln County and moved to the Arkansas/Texas/Indian Territory area. Griffin and Malinda's eldest child, Edith, married on 3 Oct 1854 and went with her husband to California. For some time the family apparently lived in Benton County, Arkansas — Griffin R Wright's name appearing on a few land deeds there, on land next to John Tucker who was certainly his brother-in-law. There was a C.P. church in Benton County [http://www.cumberland.org/hfcpc/churches/Arkansas.htm here]. On 7 Mar 1859, Griffin R Wright, for $110 bought from Thomas Denton of Benton County, the land at SW 1/4 of SE 1/4 of S22 and the NW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of S27 in T21N-R34W. These two parcels touch and form a rectangle. Meanwhile [http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/Image.asp?Accession=AR0990%5F%5F%2E291&Format=SmallGIF this BLM entry] shows John Tucker in 1854 had purchased land just two sections away.
