Recently found a new source for my Wright and Washington lines and wanted to share it here.
THE WASHINGTONS, VOLUME 9 has a rundown of my ancestry from Colonel John Washington to my grandpa Rufus S. Nichols and his siblings.

Rufus is the son of James Ira Nichols and Teresa Marcella King of Franklin County, Virginia. Tressie is a direct descendant of George Washington's immigrant great grandfather John Washington who is a descendant of at least one Magna Charta Baron and is a founder of Jamestown and therefore a patriot of the American Revolution and a founder and patriot of the United States of America. Pretty sure he is listed in the SAR directory as well.

John Washington married Ann Pope and had a daughter Ann who married Major Francis Wright. Ann and Frank had a son named John Wright who is my seventh great grandfather.

John married Dorothy Aubrey according to sources and had my sixth great grandfather Captain John Wright, Junior, who married Elizabeth Bronaugh and had my fifth great grandfather Captain William Wright, Senior, who was a blacksmith.

William married Mary Grant who was the mother of my fourth great grandfather, James G Wright, Senior. James married Margaret Young who was also known as Peggy and was the father of Margaret "Peggy" Wright, named after her mother, obviously.

Peggy married Anthony King, Junior, and was the mother of Michael O King who married Louisa Catherine Aldridge.

Louisa was the daughter of Mary "Polly" Gibson and the mother of Teresa Marcella King, my great grandmother.

This line is listed in the book from William Wright to Rufus and is accepted as fact by the National Society of  the Washington Family Descendants.
