Descendents of Griffin R Wright

Griffin R Wright born about 1813 in South Carolina, possibly to Solomon Wright and his wife Annie who may have been a MOORE. Griffin Wright married Malinda Ballentine Chapman Tucker. She had been born Jul 1815 in Stokes County, North Carolina to James Tucker and Edith Chapman White. Griffin and Malinda married probably about 1835 in an unknown place, but by 1836, he is being taxed in District 6 of Lincoln County, Tennessee.

It is not yet clear whether Malinda's parents came to Lincoln County at this time. They were in Tennessee by the end of 1823, but the first time I can pin them in Lincoln County is the 1850 census. Their sons William and John were married in Lincoln County in 1838 and 1839 so it's likely the whole family is there by then.

Griffin and Malinda had the following children:

  1. Edith Chapman Wright 1838 married first to Thomas Washington Duncan and secondly to William C Martin
  2. James Solomon Wright 1839, never married
  3. Annie Moore Wright ~1840, married a "Mr Hamlin" or Hamblin, Hamblen and she died by 1898
  4. John Elliot Wright 1841 married first Mary Ellen M L Lowe and secondly C Van Lindt
  5. William Tucker Wright 1844 married Mary Elizabeth Burrow
  6. Thomas Jefferson Wright 1846 married Laura Josephine Bourland
  7. George Washington Higgins Wright 1848 married first Mary Ellen Redwine and secondly Lavina V S Geurin
  8. Elizabeth Randall Wright ~1850 married Elkanah Archibald "Kana" Richards

Griffin may have died in Benton County, Arkansas and appears to have died between 1862 and 1870. Malinda died 18 Jan 1898 in Red Bluff, Tehama County, California, where her probate names all of her children.
