  • Notes 
    • A Greenbury Wright and Catherine Lodica "Sevedge" Wright came from Ohio at about the time the Goldman family came and settled on a tract of land just east of the Goldman's. They had been neighbors in Ohio. [Edit: The Wright family had previously been domiciled in Randolph County, North Carolina, as cited in the 1800 census....sg]

      They also had children, three of whom were born before they came to Indiana. They had Peter, John, and Elizabeth, Candice, Sallie, Nancy, and Annuel. Peter was a queer boy-spent most of his time with the friendly Indians, so was known as Indian Pete. He died quite young. John was born in 1800 in North Carolina. [Another daughter, DELILA, was later identifed as Greenberry's daughter in the distrubution of estate document of John Goldman, Sr.'s. - her name being Delila ;Cresaleus'.... sg] Elizabeth was born in 1798 according to the census of 1850 when she gave her age as 52 years .

      We found John's birth certificate on his tombstone so it is presumed that she also was born in North Carolina. We note this here because this Elizabeth Wright became the wife of John Goldman Jr. John Goldman Sr. presumbly lost his wife some time previous to 1820 and Greenbury Wright died about 1812

      [Edited - Pension Record cites Greenberry Wright was honorably discharged from the military 30 Nov 1811 at Vincennes Indiana hospital - thought no 'official discharge record' has been found. Date of death is specifically stated as 11 March 1813 in Crawford County....sg] ['Indian Pete' Peter Wright died shortly after his father died] leaving his widow Lodica"Dicy"with six children.

      John Goldman Sr and Lodica Wright were married some years previous to 1820 as the census of 1820 notes that they have twelve children living with them with four under ten years of age. Married and they had two children under ten years as the census record shows.

      The census records are our best authority for the birthdates and ages of many in our story. John Goldman was left with six children and Lodica Wright was left with six children. John Goldman, Jr married Elizabeth Wright, his stepsister.
