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.  There was a C.P. church in Benton County [http://www.cumberland.org/hfcpc/churches/Arkansas.htm here].

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.  On 7 Mar 1859, Griffin R Wright, for $110 bought from Thomas Denton of Benton County, the land at NW 1/4 of SE 1/4 of S22 and the NW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of S27 in T21N-R34W.

Griffin may have died in Benton County, Arkansas and appears to have died between 1862 and 1870 when Malinda appears on a census without him.  Malinda died 18 Jan 1898 in Red Bluff, Tehama County, California, where her probate names all of her children.
