Benoni Wright (Ahnentafel No:16 )
Some sources give Samuel Wright's age at the time of death as 91. This appears to be incorrect as he was 61 at the time of his death. This may be due to a misreading of the age from his gravestone. Images seen of the gravestone have this section illegible and possibly buried in the ground.
