Hi, saw your listing and thought there might be a connection.
My great grandfather was Edward Robert Wright who was married to Jettie Mae Grant. I found them on a 1900 Federal census for Wichita Falls. I'm not sure if he was born there or in Lawton OK (Indian Terr.) in 1879. Info differs.

They were parents of Edward Lawrence, Robert, Edna, Floyd, Hubert and Lloyd. Edward was born in 1904 in Grapevine TX.

He was married at least four times. Myrtle Fain, Clarabell, Faye and Verda. He worked as a truck driver for McAfee Wholesale Produce Co. in Wichita Falls in the 20's and 30's. He also had a crippled leg. He fathered Edward Lawrence Jr. (Larry), Ruby, Catherine, Kathleen and an unknown son. Ed Sr apparently had a drinking problem and died in the Big Spring State Hospital in 1967. Before that he had lived in Southern Calif. My father, Edward Jr. (Larry) was born to him and Myrtle Fain Wright in Wichita Falls TX in 1930. They divorced and she died in 1940.

His last wife in TX was I believe Faye who had 2 daughters with him and was pregneat with a boy when he left her and ran off with her best friend and housekeeper Verda. They went to CA.

If any of this sounds in the least familiar, please email me at or

Just to update the previous message.

Lassiter was Faye's last name and he was also married to Myrtle Tipton. Their issue was Ruby Mae.

I have since been able to find Edward Robert Wright and Jettie Mae Grant and children on the 1920 census in Fruitland, Montique Co. TX. Unfortunatly, the only info about his parents says they were both from the USA.

Really need to find out what their names were so would appreciate any help any of you can provide.

Clifford Elizabeth Wright was my husband's grandmother. Her maiden name was Forson. She is buried in Highland Cemetery, Iowa Park, TX. Hope this helps, you may already know this information by now, I see that this is a really old post.

I found an old newspaper article that says.
"Elder David Fisher and B.L. Wright came to the
Oak Shade Community in 1857, And on 4 July 1857
started the Oak Shade Baptist Church.The town of
Cleveland, Texas wasn't established until 1879,
when the railroad came through.There was a
William Henry Wright in Cleveland near it's
beginning, He owned several hotels,But I don't
know if the two are related. Is anyone familiar
with either of these men?

We have recently found some pictures of Samuel Wright and his family that were in the estate of Edith Barcus in Waco,TX. We would like to get these pictures from around 1890-1930 we speculate, to family.
Obviously there were five sisters in the Wright family and these women appear in some of the family pictures. If you have connections to this family, please email a reply.
