EZRA R. WRIGHT, farmer, P.O. Guy’s Mills, was born in Jefferson County, N.Y., July 11, 1824, son of William and Lucy (Eastman) Wright, the former a native of New Hampshire, the latter of Vermont, early settlers of Venango County, Penn. Ezra R. Wright was raised on a farm, and has always followed agricultural pursuits. He came to this township in 1864, and has demonstrated the fact that he is an excellent husbandman by placing his farm in a high state of cultivation. He takes quite an interest in high grade stock and fowls, of which he has quite a number. At the death of his first wife, Mary Hasson, he was left with five children, viz.: Wilhelmina, wife of Charles Crook; Frederick N., who married Edith Faunce; Alvira, wife of Lawrence Moffat; Mary, wife of J. Hill, and John, who married Ella Boyles. Mr. Wright married for his second wife Nancy Duffield, a native of Venango County, Penn., by whom he has two children, viz.: Harvey M. and Emma, both now living at home, assisting their parents upon the homestead farm.
