  • Notes 
    • Given in many online sources as a daughter of Benjamin Bailey (1721-1771) and Freelove Avery (1722-1794), but as far as we can see, their only daughter named Hannah was born in 1743 and died in infancy.

      The gravestone of the Hannah Bailey who married David Wright gives her age at death as 62, implying a birth year of 1752. There is a gap in the record of Benjamin and Freelove Avery's children that would allow for the birth of a second Hannah in 1752, but there appears to be no record confirming this.
