David Wright succeeded Mr. Keeler, being elected (county judge) at the general election in October, 1861, and assumed the duties of office Jan. 1, 1862. He was re-elected in 1863 and served until January, 1866. Mr. Wright was one of the pioneers of the county. He came west in 1856, settling in Cerro Gordo county, where he remained until the following year, when he removed into Worth, locating in the township of Hartland. Here he resided some ten years, when he sold out and moved into the adjoining township of Northwood. Shortly before his death, which occurred May 6, 1880, he removed into the town of Northwood. He was a man much respected throughout the county for his uprightness and honesty of purpose and integrity of life, and was honored by the people by the bestowal of several offices, the most important of which was this one of county judge.
