I am new to the blogging community but, as my family tree has grown, I decided that this is the best way to share my findings and make new connections.
I have been interested in genealogy in about 30 years and have worked on it off and on during that time.
I am a descendant of Abel Wright, Sr. (~1631-1725). He's my 7th (and 9th) great-grandfather! My parents discovered that Abel and his wife, Martha Kitcherel were ancestors of both of them when both their parents discovered the same story about Martha. In July of 1708, Martha was scalped by Indians and she did not die until October. Since that was pretty unusual, it caught there attention and the connection was made.
