Ancestal Mystery #12

#12 - Mrs. Mary Wright: Quaker minister James Wright was married to a woman named Mary. Mary's surname is the item in question. When I began researching, sources showed her as Mary Davis. A few years later, an article was published that identified Mrs. Wright as Mary Bowater. The Davis proponents then came forward again, disputing the Bowater article.

Research needs to be conducted on both the Davis and Bowater theories to determine if either clearly identifies the maiden name of Mrs. Mary Wright.

Maybe the Salt Lake Institute will bring back Problem Solving. This would be a good project to present for solution.
