Tonya: I can't help you with the Wright family, but I do know that Ruth Shumway Wright was the "Aunt Ruth" that my grandmother used to talk about, and that my grandmother, Ruth Able Patrick, was named for her. When we drove from Seymour, Indiana to Columbus, Indiana, we passed a fork in the road, where Grandma said her Aunt Ruth lived. When we cut off old US 31 to visit family in the country, we passed over "Wright's Hill", named after your family. If you would like more info on our mutual ancestors, the Shumways, please contact me via email,and I can probably help you there. The Shumways are well-researched, and a fine website is available online at You are probably also tied to the Prather family, aren't you also tied in to the Kreinhagen, Able, Prather, and Overman families?
