Classification: Query
I am seeking information and/or documentation on the death date, death place, and burial place of Nancy Clower Myers (Miers) Wright. Nancy is "said" to have died in Prairie Lea, Caldwell Co., Texas. Nancy Clower was born about 1803 in Georgia. Following is the information I have to date:

Guadalupe County Marriage Records (1866-1869); Guadalupe County, Texas
< >
Wright, Asa to Nancy Miers by W. B. Sherrill, JP, on Sep 22 1867
NOTE: Nancy would have been about 64 years old, and Asa about 71 years old..

Name Cause Date Filed Case No.
Wright, Asa, deceased Mar 26 1873 631
NOTE: Asa dies about the age of 77. Nancy, if not desceased, would be about 70 years old.
Did Nancy die between census date in 1870 and Asa's probate case in 1873? According to what I have, Nancy was still alive.

NOTE: Is this the widow of Asa Wright (above)?

Any information would be greatly apprciated. Thanks.

i think the nancy wright linked to john clark was his mother in law. john clark was married to antoinette elizabeth wright. her mother was salina d. wells wright.
he took care of his mother in law after the death of antoinette's father. john clarks mother was named nancy.
there are no wright females on the 1880 texas census that line up with a nancy wright. the only mention i find of asa wright is in the caldwell family history book. he lived at prairie lea, which is on the caldwell-guadalupe county line. he made a contribution to the building of the methodist church in prairie lea.
there are no listings of these 2 people in the caldwell county cemetery book.
sorry, lynn

Lymm, thanks for your reply. I have no CLARKS in (my) Nancy WRIGHT'S history. I think this may have been another Nancy [maiden name unknown] WRIGHT. I was questioning that Guardian relationship to see if anyone actually knew if that Nancy Wright was Asa's widow. From what you say, evidently she was not.

I need to digest your reply a bit more, look at all my data to compare, and may get back to you later.
A thought: Perhaps there may have been two Asa WRIGHTS in the area, I am not sure. Asa is a quite unusual name though. It seems that most events between (my) Nancy [CLOWER>MYERS) WRIGHT and the Asa WRIGHT that I have occured in Guadalupe Co. This is evidenced by a couple of other replys that I have had. I am going to have to study all of these.

Thanks again for your efforts,
Grady Greene
