Searching for the Wright stuff......

GREETINGS! My name is Roseanna Wright and I was referred to the Dispatch for help in finding information about my family. I have been researching the family history.

My father, Harold Samuel Wright, was born on May 15 1909 in what was then called Hucknall Torkard — on Mosley Street.

His father was Samuel Wright, son of (I believe) Samuel and Elizabeth Wright.

His mother was Emily Ann Walker, daughter of Emma Allcock and John Walker.

My father and his family moved to the USA in 1914 but I know little else beyond some stories and what I have found on the Internet.

Any assistance from Dispatch readers would be greatly appreciated.
