Married Fannie Jackson, February 13, 1898; children Harvey, Myrtle, Calvin, Carey, Leonard, Grace and Dudley. Wrote over 200 songs, both music and poetry. Began writing at about fifteen years of age; stated that "I write by inspiration, only when the mood comes on the words and melody flow from my soul like the water from a babbling brook; without this inspiration I could not write; 'Precious Memories' was born in the midnight hours as I bathed by pillow with tears, likewise all my songs came through life's severest tests." --William J. Reynolds, DNAH Archives The source of Wright's tears mentioned above was the memory of the death of his son, Everett Jackson Wright, at the age of 3 1/2 in 1922. A detailed account of this and the writing of "Precious Memories" can be found in the May 1952 edition of the Montgomery Advertiser (Montgomery, Alabama), a copy of which is located in the DNAH Archives.
