      Kathy,

      There is a James Wright of Bounty Land Warrant 21039-80-55 and Widow's Claim 11898 in the War of 1812 Pension files with the following data:

      James Wright was married 1804 at Rockingham County, Virginia, to Martha Cox, resided on August 12, 1814, at Henry County, Virginia, and died on January 3 or February 1, 1815, at Norfolk, Virginia.

      Martha (Cox) Wright was born about 1793 or between 1788 and 1793, resided before 1840 at Virginia, and resided about 1840 & 1850 & 1853 & 1859 & 1866 & 1868 at Van Buren County, Tennessee.

      James and Martha had the following children:
      1. Barzilla Wright,
      2. Elizabeth Wright, and
      3. James Wright.

      I have not traced this Wright line further, but would much appreciate your sharing what you have on their descendants and how you identified his father as William Wright.
