Seeking any information on the Wright and Barnes family of Staten Island, NY.
My gggrandfather Joseph B. Barnes was born in Ireland ca 1822 and came to Staten Island around 1847, being naturalized in 1852. He married Sarah Wright who was born in Ireland ca 1828. A letter from one of their children, Thomas Edward Barnes from 1925 reference his aunt, Jane Wright. Believe this is the same person who was married to James Wright. James was born in Ireland ca 1827 and believe his parents were William (b. ca 1785, Ireland) and Catherine (b. ca 1783, Ireland) Wright. William and Catherine were noted in the 1860 Census in SI and noted as paupers. James Wright and Anna Jane were noted in 1880 Census in SI. Also believe that Anna Jane (or Jane Anna) was the daughter of Joseph and Catherine Barnes and in fact she might have been a sister to Joseph Barnes (above). Do know that James Wright died 7 Apr 1900 in SI and is buried in the Staten Island Cemetery. Wife Anna Jane died 19 May 1906 and buried in same. Appreciate any help in sorting out these families and obtaining new information. Thanks.
