 Wright2 Bond (Page1)(57) was born in Cumberland Co., VA. April 13, 1759. Wright died February 10, 1843 in Bedford Co., VA., at 83 years of age.
He married Martha "Patsy" Brown in Cumberland, Va, November 17, 1781.(58) Patsy was born about 1760. She was the daughter of James Brown and Mary Spearman. Patsy died after March 1848. Information taken from Bible records and with Pension Application. Patsy was 83 in 1843, and a widow. Dennis Johnson provided this info.
Wright was listed as the head of a family on the 1800 Census in Bedford Co.,VA..(59) According to Dennis Johnson: "It would appear that WRIGHT BOND was born 13 Apr 1759 in CUMBERLAND Co., VA. He married MARTHA "Pats/Patty" BROWN in Cumberland Co., VA. in Nov. 1781. (It states they married in Cumberland Co., VA. in the Pension file...ymw)
It is not clear where he was after November 1781 but we do know that he moved to Bedford, Va. in 1799-1800. Thus it would appear that all the children were born in CUMBERLAND CO., VA. up until Rhoda who could have been born in either location.

WRIGHT WAS A REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER. HE ENLISTED IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY, VA. WHERE HE WAS BORN AND RAISED. HIS AMERICAN REVOLUTION PENSION # W3382.
"Dennis has a record of the letter sent to Miss Jane Smith in 1930 from the National Archives: "REV. AND 1812 WARS SECTION; MCS:MLB NOVEMBER 7, 1930
MISS JANE E. SMITH BEDFORD, VIRGINIA

DEAR MADAM:
YOU ARE ADVISED THAT IT APPEARS FROM THE PAPERS IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION CLAIM, W. 3382, THAT WRIGHT BOND WAS BORN APRIL 13, 1759 IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY, VIRGINIA.
WHILE A RESIDENT OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY, VIRGINIA, HE WAS ENGAGED IN 1775 TO SERVE FOR ONE YEAR AS A MINUTE MAN, AND DURING THAT PERIOD HE ENLISTED AND SERVED THREE TOURS IN CAPTAIN JOSPEH CARRINTON'S (Joseph Carrington - ymw)VIRGINIA COMPANY. A TOUR OF ABOUT ONE MONTH AS A PRIVATE, (a tour) ONE OF THREE AND A HALF MONTHS AS A PRIVATE AND WAS AT NORFOLK AT THE TIME LORD DUNMORE BURNED THAT TOWN, AND A TOUR OF FOUR MONTHS AS CORPORAL. HE ENLISTED IN SEPTEMBER, 1777 AND SERVED SIX WEEKS AS SERGEANT IN CAPTAIN BENJAMIN WILSON'S VIRGINIA COMPANY AND HE STATED THAT THIS SERVICE WAS AS SUBSTITUTE FOR HIS FATHER-IN-LAW, MOSES HUBBARD.

( It was first thought that he was married before Pasty Brown became his wife. But we (Linda Lawson ; David Bell ; Marcia Witt ; Janice Kay Markham ; Dennis Johnson & I) have since learned that "father-in-law" was a frequent term for "step-father" in Colonial times...This news supports the theory that Page & Ann Holland Bond were Wrights parents...David Bell says, "Sometime before 1768 - when Anne's father identified her as "daughter Anne Hubbard" in his LWT - Anne had married Moses Hubbard." ...Yvonne Anspach White)

HE ENLISTED IN 1777 AND SERVED FOUR MONTHS AS SERGEANT IN CAPTAIN ROBERT ANDERSON'S VIRGINIA COMPANY.
HE ENLISTED IN 1779 AND SERVED TWO MONTHS AS SERGEANT IN CAPTAIN ROBERT ANDERSON'S VIRGINIA COMPANY.
HE ENLISTED IN 1780 AND SERVED AS SERGEANT IN CAPTAIN ROBERT ANDERSON'S VIRGINIA COMPANY.
IN 1799 OR 1800 HE MOVED TO BEDFORD COUNTY, VIRGINIA
THE SOLDIER DIED FEBRUARY 10, 1843 IN BEDFORD COUNTY, VIRGINIA.
