      Dear Ms. Becker,
      I just came across your posting of the gravesite of Orilla Wilson Wright at the Prospect Hill Cemetery in Sidney, Delaware County, NY.  Your notes mention that Orilla and her husband had, among others, a son, Harry.  I would like to know more about him, because I am wondering if he is the same Harry Wright that I have been looking for.  The Harry Wright who married into my family was born around 1840 and died after 1880.  He was married to  Phebe Ella Colton about 1860 and they had 4 sons: William, Chester, Dexter, and Francis "Frank."  They lived in Unadilla (1870 Census) and Bainbridge (1880 Census).  The fact that Frank named one of his daughters Orilla makes me wonder if there is indeed a connection.  Does any of this sound familiar to you?  I would very much appreciate hearing from you and would be happy to exchange information if you desire.
      Sincerely,
      Deb. Rittmeyer
