About Elizabeth Jane Morgan

Richard Wright and Ann (believed to be Elizabeth Jane Morgan - daughter of James Morgan and Mary Davis of Baltimore, MD) married abt 1748/50, possibly in MD. Their sons are as you stated, but in this order, and named in his will:

  1. Benjamin - 1752
  2. Peter - 1754
  3. Richard, Jr. - 4 July 1757
  4. John - 5 Dec 1759
  5. William R. - 25 Mar 1761
  6. Evans C - Jan 1762
  7. Amos - 2 Mar 1764
  8. Philbert - 29 Mar 1768

As such, I find it difficult to believe that this Richard Wright could have married Abigail Wigerly in 1757.

At this time, the true parents of Richard, Sr. seem to be unknown, as does the actual place of his birth. There are some strong indications (BUT, at this time no physical proof - just strong circumstantial evidence) that his parents may have been Philbert Right and Esther Becraft of Maryland. Legal documents exist that put him in Maryland.
