About Huldah Wright

HULDAH ARLEDGE, b. Abt. 1769, Fairfield Co, SC; d. Bef. August 25, 1809; m. JESSE WRIGHT.


Unmarried in 1829 according to Fairfield Co. local census.

Fay Kitchens writes: "Rachel and Huldah married Jesse Ginn and Jesse Wright, but I do not know who married whom. On August 23, 1798 Jesse Rite (Wright) of Chester Co. gave Jesse Ginn his power of attorney to recover from Joseph and Clement Arledge their wives' part of estate." (Jan. 16, 1984 letter from Ken Tidwell, Salt Lake City, UT)

Graham Louer has a slightly different interpretation. "On 22 August 1798, a Jesse Wright appointed Jesse Ginn his attorney-in-fact, with a power of attorney to recover for Jesse Wright his share of Isaac [Arledge's] estate. Thus it appears that it was Jesse Wright, not Jesse Ginn, who married Huldah, and that Jesse Ginn was merely signing the receipt in that capacity. The reason being that Jesse Wright had moved to someplace inconvenient for handling such affairs himself.

"In 1800 there is a Jesse Wright in Pendleton District, SC (20010-11010).

"Implied Marriages of Fairfield has Jesse Gin the husband of ______Arledge, but this implied marriage was implied by the receipt signed by Jesse Ginn and found in the estate papers. A perfectly logical conclusion is one is not aware of the power of attorney Jesse Ginn had, plus the fact that *Both* Ginn and Wright cannot be husbands of Isaac's daughters; there is only one left, and it has to be Huldah. (Finally, a Huldy Wright, wife of Jesse, died slightly before 25 August 1809 when Jesse makes bond to administer her estate)....Huldah evidently married Jesse Wright some time between Jan 1790 and 22 August 1798, when Jesse Wright appointed Jesse Ginn his attorney in fact." (Graham Louer, personal correspondence, 1998).

Graham Louer writes (May 1999) about the settlement of Isaac Sr's estate:

sarah bishop and anne bishop received their shares in april and june of 1800, respectively. then, more than 3 years later, william, isaac, amos and jesse ginn [signing in his capacity of attorney for jesse wright, husband of huldah] all sign one receipt acknowledging receipt of their respective shares of the estate of isaac.

huldah m. [after jan 1790 and by aug 1798] jesse wright; huldah died in 1809, by august of that year
