    Notes 
    • Anthony Kitchens Wright was a "Bushwacker" and sole surviving son of Judge Lewis Wright family. Anthony never took oath of allegiance after Civil War. Family tradition says "he was wanted by the law all of his life." 1869 St. Louis deed record shows where Anthony and John Jackson, Administer for Lewis F Wright estate, met and finalized the land transaction. John Jackson came back and recorded the same at Phelps County Court House.

      Side note: coincidence that at this same time, Col. Babcoke's house in Miller County was set fire and destroyed. Babcoke's soon depart and no record yet found. [Babcoke was the one who murdered Anthony's father and four brothers.]
