Allen R. Wright was born n Chatham County on June 13, 1811. I could find nothing about his parents or his early life. However, by his accomplishments in later years he apparently come from a family of some social standing and he was also well educated. On July 4, 1830, at age 19, he joined the Chatham Artillery, a well respected social and military unit of Volunteer Militia. Nothing certain is known about Allen Wright for the next few years but it seems likely that he entered in business of some sort, as was proper for a young man of his social standing. The earliest listing shows him simply as a clerk. Not long after his twenty-third birthday Mr. Wright took a bride.
