Frances R. Stifflemire

Born May 1, 1836 in South Carolina

Duncan Wright

March 30,1861 in Monroe county, Alabama
They had one daughter, Frances Wright sometime between 1862 and 1863. Duncan died 1870.

Frances came to Texas and married John W. Hague on February 25, 1875 in Bastrop County, Texas. John Hague left his family when Ella was very small. I have been unable to find any clues to his whereabouts. His daughter Ella said that he came back many years later, claiming that he'd been off "seeking his fortune". She wanted nothing to do with her father and refused to see him.
