    1. From: Emory, Mary Bourke. Colonial Families and Their Descendants. Press of the Sun Printing Office. Baltimore. 1900.

    Mr. Stephen Collins Wright, third son of Colonel Wright, was named for Stephen Collins, of Pittsburgh, Pa., who married Sarah Lowrey, sister of Mrs. Col. Thomas Wright, of "Reed's Creek." Mr. Collins Wright married Miss Margaret, daughter of Mrs. Catharine P. Emory, of "Lansdowne," a beautiful old home, which has, like many others, fallen into other hands and is fast losing its freshness and beauty. Still it is a noble-looking dwelling. Mr. Collins Wright has the handsome face of his father, the same commanding figure, charming manners and genial disposition. A tall, well-chiselled, splendidly-formed man, one can but admire.

    "His limbs are cast in manly mould For hardy sports, or contest bold, His stately mien, as well implies A high-born heart, a 'martial pride.'
    His ready speech flows fair and free In phrase of 'gentlest' courtesy, Yet seemed that tone and gesture bland, More used to 'sue' than to 'command.'"

    His lovable and attentive wife and he have passed many happy hours together, and seem almost inseparable. May their last days as they descend the "Hill of Life" be as peaceful and harmonious as the early days of their youth and beauty. "Love" has blessed their home.
