Marshall Stephenson, Thomas and Edward Tobin.


My maternal great-grandparents, Virgil and Edna (Pierce) Wright, were attendees at this party hosted for Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Maddox.

I do not know if this Maddox family was related to the family of Edna's stepmother, Vida (Maddox) Pierce.

I also do not yet know the relationship, if any, with the Frank Wright family.
