  • Notes 
    • Update: We have found Vernard Wright. Vernard Wright was living in VA in 1917, he came down to Weldon during Kit's birth but then disappears after that. On Vernard's WWI Registration Card he states that he is from Weldon, NC. Thelma died in 1922 and this would explain why John was taken in by Martha Person and then later adopted by Thelma's sister, Mary Alice. On the 1930 Census for Charleston, SC, Marjorie Wright reports that her father is from Virginia. I can see why she thought this. He lived in Hopewell VA which is just 55 miles away. - R.
