Family of Samuel Wright who lived in California 1860

I'm looking for more information on Samuel Wright born 1820 in Virginia. He was married to Elizabeth Cunningham. In 1853 he moved his family to California. His wife died 1858 in Yolo, California.

I have found the 1860 census in Yolo, California:
Samuel Wright born 1819 in Virginia
F Marion Wright born 1842 in Mississippi
C Jane Wright born 1843 in Virginia
Delbert M Wright born 1845 in Missouri/Mississippi
Emma Wright born 1853 in California
Samuel R Wright born 1857 in California

Any further information regarding this Wright family in California would be great. It was said one of the sons was a steamboat captain on the Sacramento River around 1913. Francis Marion Wright the oldest son listed is my 2nd great grandfather, he settled in Methow Valley, Washington.

Thank you,
