Notes

  • First appearing in the census in 1860, Moses was reproted as 2 yearsold.

    1860 Federal Census, Chambers County, Alabama, 17 July, PO Beulah,page 39 (scan 925), Hse/Fam #280

    Andrew W Wright 5 M born AL
    Moses Wright 2 M born AL

    Reported as Moses Emory in some sources, in the 1870 census thisindividual was reported as Fred Wrright, age 12, and thus born about1858.  Since this is the last child born before the 1870 census, thisappears to be the same individual as Moses Emtory.  I ahve found nosources that document the name Fred together with either Moses orEmory.
