  • Notes 
    • According to Wetmore Memorial, she was descended from the martyred Rev. John Rogers, and from Connecticut governor George Wyllys.

      Some sources locate her as the daughter of a Joseph Wright of Middletown, but the Middletown records appear to clearly show her as the daughter of William Wright and his wife Lucy (or Lucia).
