Hi Angela: Thank you for the information, My Wright's orginated from North Carolina and I think they were among the Trail of Tears. Joseph\Jos Wright 1st born 1795 N.C.married Mrs. J. Wright born 1804 N.C
Jane Wright Daughter born 1812 N.C. Jane had a son named Joe\jos Wright 2nd born 1832)N.C.
Cornelia Wright Daughter born 1820 N.C.
( I think all of the above remained in the same district I found all of them listed on M685 Roll 12 of the Drennen & Act of Congress (Combined Index of Eastern Cherokee of 1851 However, I think my greatgrandfather moved to Louisiana.

Listed on 1880 Census St. John the Baptist
Jos Wright 2nd St. John the Baptist Louisiana and married listed as follow:
Jos Wright Black Male age 48 born 1832 Cora Grank B- 30- wife- Mississippi\

Wright Josephine Dgt Born 1904 La.
Wright Cary Dgt born 191=08 La (my mother name changed to Elouise
