52 Weeks with Jesse Wright 1749 - 1834 wife Abbey Cook

Jesse Wright  was born 19 November 1749 Hillsboro, Hillsborough, N. H. Colony of America pre USA  It seems that there is some surprising news that Jesse was a twin.  He also had at least 4 other siblings.
This is picked up in the references to Jesse Wright.  Family stated Hillsboro, the New Hampshire Birth Records, Early to 1900, stated born in Pelham.  Here is what distant cousin has located.

"Jesse Wright, of Dracut, settled in 1774 on the lot now known as the Davis Nevens farm, which he bought of Bagley and Little, May 29, 1774, for "three pounds of lawful money." The deed, still in existence, was acknowledged before Stephen Longfellow, of Portland, and witnessed by Nathan and Jonas Coburn. Mr. Wright's first log house was just east of Meadow Brook. His brother Joel and Timothy Wright came about 1777.
I found in New Hampshire Birth Records, Early to 1900, records of Jesse and Joel Wright, both born 19 Nov. 1749, and Timothy Wright, 2 Aug. 1744, all born in Pelham, the children of Jonathan and Abigail Wright. Three earlier children of Jonathan and Abigail were born in Dracut, so the family seems to have moved across the border to New Hampshire in about 1742-44.

It looks like Jesse Wright was from Dracut, Mass., and/or Pelham, N. H. From Elder's History of Lewiston,      Chris Dunham"

This also gives parentage as Jonathan and  Abigail Wright. Three earlier children born in Dracut. 

Jesse 1749
Joel  1749  twins

Timothy 2 August 1744 

3 more born in Dracut?  who where they?

More intrigue from cousin Bill West with this information.

(Sue, I have an ancestress Deborah Wright who was the daughter of Joseph Wright and Deborah Stevens. Their oldest son was Jonathan Wright, born in Chelmsford, Essex, Ma. 24Oct 1701, died 25Jan1784 in Pelham, Hillsborough NH. He was married to an Abigail(Unknown last name) who died 10Nov 1779.
 I have no sources handy atm, but I noticed the names Coburn in Chris' reply. Deborah Wright married my ancestor Moses Coburn. Chelmsford was part of Dracut( ? vice versa?
Hope that is of some help for what it's worth..)

Brother Timothy  2 Aug 1744 Pelham parents Jonathon and Abigail Wright  early child born Darcut moved in to NH about 1742..

Interesting to see them all the way to Iowa with other family near.

Father J and A Wright, son Jesse Wright, to  daughter Hannah Wright whom marries Abraham D. Young Sr. both dying in Guilford, Piscataquis Co. , Maine USA

Abraham and  Hannah Wright's son Abraham D Young Jr moves to Nashua, IA born 23 Arpil 1812 Franklin Co. Maine. He stopped in Boone Co. ILL  He also marries a Hannah OEN? both died in Iowa.  His first wife Eliza Grover was from Pittston, m 11 July 1833 Maine. They  moved to Illinois then Iowa.  

Appreciate feedback from other WRIGHT, COOK, YOUNG RESEARCHERS. THANKS

Does anyone have the names of the other children and amazed at the HANNAH' first names of my ancestresses.  I have a Grandaughter Hannah.  Amazing how those names just keep reoccuring and the family wasn't looking for them.
