Wright Cemetery

Go 7 miles east on Hwy 43 to CR 272 A in the New Prospect Community. This is a dirt road that is hard to see. Go .04 miles down 272 A until you get to Wright cemetery on the left. This cemetery is in the Hansel Wright survey who is also buried here. Transcription and photos were done on 3/1/08.

Some 'nick' names and maiden names and bolded family explanations were filled in on this copy by information I borrowed from Mary Frank Dunn and Mrs. Gordon Brown's earlier transcription of the cemetery. There are quite a lot of unmarked graves here. Historical Marker
