I think my gggrandmother is Mary Elizabeth Wright, daughter of Jacob W. and Cynthia Kessinger.
My grandmother told me Mary's maiden name was Kessinger and I wasted a lot of time trying to track that down. Then I received a birth document that listed her as Mary Elizabeth Wright. She married (1876), lived (census 1880) and died (about 1889 shortly after childbirth along with the baby) in Hillsboro, Montgomery County, Illinois.
When I saw that Cynthia's maiden name was Kessinger, I was pretty sure I'd found the right family--BUT I'VE BEEN WRONG BEFORE. I've sent for her marriage and death certificates and hopefully one or the other will verify.
