Ellen (King) Wright (1868-1913)

Ellen (KING) WRIGHT (1868-1913) was my maternal 2nd-great grandmother.  I have not been able to yet trace the origins of the KING line back to the old country.

The following facts about Ellen's life are known:
  • Birth: She was born August 24, 1868 in Frankton, Madison County, Indiana, the daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth (SHAW) KING.
  • Census: 1870 - She appears in the Daniel KING household in Monroe Township, Madison County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1880 - She appears in the William COCHRAN household in Monroe Township, Madison County, Indiana.
  • Marriage: She married John William WRIGHT on May 13, 1888 in Madison County, Indiana.
  • Census:1900 - She appears in the John W. WRIGHT household in Monroe Township, Madison County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1910 - She appears in the John W. WRIGHT household in Monroe Township, Madison County, Indiana.
  • Death: She died December 24, 1913 in Monroe Township, Madison County, Indiana.  Cause of death: mitral regurgitation
  • Obituary: Her obituary appeared December 26, 1913 in the Alexandria Times-Tribune
  • Burial: She is buried in the I.O.O.F. cemetery in Alexandria, Madison County, Indiana.
The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:
  • Children: The 1910 census indicated that she was the mother of 4 children, with only 2 living.  Need to try to identify names and birth/death dates of these other infants.
  • Obituary: Need to seek out obituaries printed in other local papers (Anderson, Elwood, etc.)
