Hi Diane. Do you know the names of Jesse and Abby's children? Two of my ancestors were Sarah Wright (1789) and Dorothea Wright (born 1783). I believe they were sisters. They are both buried in Eastern Cemetery in Portland, Maine. Sarah Wright married Henry Small. Dorothea Wright married Horatio Gates Cook. Sarah and Henry had a son, George Washington Wright Small who married Jane Cook Ulrick. Just trying to connect the dots.

The names of the 9 children of Jesse, Sr. and his wife, Abby are listed with birth dates on p. 302 of the Records of Lewiston, Maine Vol. II Town Records 1852-1868, Vital Records Prior to 1865. No Dorothea Wright is listed. The Sarah Wright listed did not marry Henry Small.
