Wright – Lydia Wright

Lydia Wright, my 3rd great grand aunt, was the daughter of John Hominy Wright and Margaret Lane Reese and sister of Solomon Wright. She was one of the first white children born on White River in this county, probably the second. She was born three weeks after they arrived. Can you imagine! They had 13 children already and they were traveling through land with no roads at all with everything they had. If they were lucky they might be able to follow an Indian trail through the swamps and forests. The route was impassable by wagon so they had to walk or ride a horse, if they were lucky.
