Wright's of Dracut Mass, Pelham, New Hampshire

Having found minor data on Jonathan and Abigail Wright. Will share it here.

Will also share it appears that Bill West is a cousin from this family line.  Wondering if his West line will ever connect to Harley West's line.  I am also related to him distantly and his wife Deb is related to my husband's family.

So here is what I know, very little. If I had more time in Blackfoot Id. I may have found more information.

 Jonathan and Abigail had children,  hurray that is how I got to be here.  One of their children's names was Jesse Wright  and he married Abbey Cook.
Jesse born 19 Nov 1749 Pelham, Mass died 1784  Abbey was born 1739 and died 1784.

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

from Bill WEST
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. 24 Oct 1701, died 25 Jan1784
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(or vice's late and I'm too tired to think clearly.)

Hope that is of some help for what it's worth..

Obviously?? Bill has my Jesse WRIGHT's ancestor in his files.????

Would love feedback for the WRIGHT line and thank you Bill for what you sent.

 I have other records on YOUNG that I will post for those digging Young also.
Some I can place most I can not.
