Dedication and Special Thanks

The William Wright and Frances (Campbell) site is dedicated to my close friend, Irene Wright. She has spent more time researching the Wright and Campbell families of anyone that I know. Throughout the years, we have worked closely together, sharing our research, thoughts and ideas.

Would also like to recognize Kendall Sparkman, Barb Schan and John T. Wright.

Campbell Family

Frances 'Fanny' Campbell was the d/o James CAMPBELL Sr. and Jane SAMPLE. The Campbell family remained in close contact with the Wright and other families and there were several intermarriages amongst the Wright, DOWNING, RAGSDALE and ROARK families. Several of the Campbell-Wright descendants migrated to the Cole Co., MO area.

James Campbell Sr. came to the colonies before the revolution where he was a soldier. After the war, James was one of the first settlers of east Tennessee and one of the earliest pioneers on Fountain Run in Monroe Co.,KY.

Jane SAMPLE was d/o Moses Sample and Ruth WOOD. Moses left a will dated January 24, 1824 in Jefferson Co., KY - Will Book 2, p. 558; Probate Book 8, p. 170.

NOT BELIEVED to be part of this family

William Wright (1800-1851)
Married Elizabeth Ann 'Nancy' Stockdale

I do NOT believe the William Wright, born about 1800 North Carolina and died about 1851 Benton Co., Tennessee and married Elizabeth Ann 'Nancy' Stockdale, to be a son of this William Wright and Frances Campbell.

Though he lived in Benton Co. TN also, the reasons that we do not belive this William who married Nancy STOCKDALE to be a child of William and Fanny (Campbell) Wright are:
