Wright Family Land Tax Lists, Franklin County, Virginia 1786-1860


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. The source for the records listed in this volume is the Franklin County Virginia, Land Tax Lists, from the Virginia State Library in Richmond. This material has been separated into sections by county and by type, making it an efficient and organized resource for Wright family researchers. Information includes names of people involved and acreage, average price, amount, and tax. A most helpful feature for each entry is the identification column, in which the author identifies the specific family and Wright ancestors from whom the named Wright descends. All names are indexed.
