Fifth Generation

407. Desiree Hayes1,12 was born on 10 December 1801 in New York. She died on 15 May 1898 in Harrison Co., OH. See Record of Deaths, Probate Court, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, 1896, for Desire Wright, female, died on May 15 1895 at the age of 96, born in New York, and died of old age.

Desiree Hayes and Sylvanus Sr. Wright were married on 14 August 1828 in Harrison Co., OH. Sylvanus Sr. Wright1,12 was born in 1806 in Delaware Co., N. Y.. He died in September 1874 in Monroe Twp., Harrison Co., OH. See 1810 census for Colchester, Delaware Co., N. Y., for James Wright who has 4 males under 10 and 1 male 10-16, also 1 female. Sylvanus was born in Delaware Co., N. Y. If this is Sylvanus's father, Sylvanus would be one of the males under 10, being about 4 years old. There is also an Alpheus Wright living in Delaware Co. with 3 males under 10; also a Jacob Wright with 3 males under 10.

See 1820 census for Nottingham Twp., Harrison Co., Ohio for James Wright, who has 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-18, and 3 males 16-26, also several females. Sylvanus could be the 10-16 year old as he was born in 1806 and would be 14. Another Nottingham Twp. resident was Jonathan Wright, but his males are under 10 years old.

See 1830 census for Nottingham Twp., Harrison Co. for Sylvenis Wright, age 20-30, and 1 female, 20-30. They were married in 1828. Also living nearby are a Jacob Wright 50-60, several children and a female 40-50, Issac Wright 20-30, Caleb Wright, 15-20???. I suspect that Jacob and Ruth Wright are Sylvanus's parents, Caleb and Issac probably brothers.

See 1840 census for Monroe Twp., Harrison Co., Ohio for Sylvanus, 1 male under 5 (this would be Sylvanus Jr.), 1 male 30-40 (Sylvanus Sr.), 1 female under 5 (Samantha), 1 female 5-10 (Emarilla), and 1 female 30-40 (Desiree).
