James Munson Gill born 18 June 1842 was married to Texana Wright and they lived in Ellis County, Texas. Do you have any information at all about her parents? The 1860 Census of Ellis County has a W. Wright and an M. Wright. The husband was William but it is the wife that is causing problems for a lot of people. Did you run into a Margaret Wright or Peggy Wright in your research?

Family tradition says this woman is part Choctaw Indian. Have you been told that this ancestor of yours had Indian blood? The way I figure it, William Wright and his wife Margaret were your Great-great-great Grandparents. Margaret or Peggy Gill was my Great-great Grandmother. She was married before marrying William Wright.

Please let me know if you have any information about Margaret or know anyone that might have anything. Thank you.
