- Melba Gene McLemore shows that he married three times, to Lola DERASAUL, Elizabeth BURKHAM Mason (his first cousin, daughter of his mother's sister Victoria Reynolds Mason), and Willie BAILEY.
Was Wright the father of Maggie McLemore, born in Jan 1891 in Arkansas? Maggie was living with her grandmother, Elvira McLemore Newman in Lincoln County, Arkansas at the time of the 1900 census.
Melba Gene indicates that sometime before, Wright had married to his third wife, Willie Bailey, and they were living in Owen, Lincoln County, Arkansas at the time of the 1900 census. Living with them was 6 year old James Harmon, born March 1894, a step son to Wright, born to Willie during her first marriage. They were also the parents of 10 month old Sterling McLemore.
In 1910, Willie Bailey Harmon McLemore was remarried to Eli BENNINGFILED. They were living in Niven Twp, Jefferson County, Arkansas with their blended family.

*This was written, and then lined through. Wright McLemore was also listed as a boarder in the Smith Home in Owen, Lincoln, Arkansas at the 1880 census, working as a farm laborer. The enumerator must have crossed him off the census in his mother's home to avoid double counting him.
