Happy 126th Anniversary, Great Grandaunt Marietta and Uncle Stephen Wright!


The family of Stephen and Marietta Lee Wright, approx 1902

126 years ago, 21 February 1894, my great grandaunt, Marietta Lee, daughter of Charles Norton and Esther Jenks Lee, married Stephen A. D. Wright, son of Allen Prince and Rebecca Caroline Griswald Wright in Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan.  Aunt Etta was born in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan on 20 March 1870.  Uncle Stephen was born on 10 August 1867 also in Southfield.  The two were the parents of 8 children:  Estelle (1894), Mariam Mae (1896), Clare Levern (1896), Walter Lee (1901) [all are in the picture, above], Harvie Morris (1903), Llewellyn Lee (1904), Baby Girl (1905-1905), and Esther Rebecca (1912).


From an article published on the history of Southfield we see that early education was of importance to the Wright family as Uncle Stephen was director of the School Board.  The Churches, and Jenks children mentioned in the article were cousins of the Wright children and all were descendants of Morris and Almira Botsford Jenks.
