Franklin and Cerro Gordo Counties, Iowa
James WRIGHT, a native of Brown Co., N. Y., came to the township in 1854, purchasing a claim on section 17, but for
some reason did not prove up, but sold his claim in the fall to Lewis MOSHER, and took another claim, on section 5, where
he built him a cabin, broke and fenced a few acres. In the fall of 1855 he again sold to George FREDERICK, and in the
spring of 1856 removed to Minnesota, and from there to Kansas, where he died March 18, 1859. His widow is now the
wife of John D. MASSEY, who lives in Rock Falls.
