Biographical Information

  • Graduated from Middlebury High School (Vermont) in 1898
  • Went by "Sarah" not Olive
  • Died when hit by a car as a pedestrian
  • From Ruth Marilyn Brandon: "My mother (Marion Vera Hurlburt) lived with  these grandparents (George Henry Wright and Crucy Eliza Elmer) a couple years while her father (Donald Paul Hurlburt) looked for a second wife when the first (Sarah Olive Wright) was a pedestrian hit, dragged and killed by a car in Rutland,VT when  my mother was ca 12-13 and her brother Roderic several years younger. (ca 1915 or 1916 when cars were new and driving not yet requiring competence marked by a license)"



  • The one online source I have been able to find (the Creitz site) lists the name as O. Sarah Wright. However Ruth Marilyn Brandon initially insisted that she has always heard Sarah Olive Wright and not Olive Sarah Wright and all family documents bear that out. So I went with that for awhile. But a more recent email uncovers more evidence for the Olive Sarah order, so I have switched the name to reflect that.
  • Some sources show wedding 4 Mar 1901 instead of 24 Mar 1901 as shown above.
  • The Wright Lot in Weybridge Hill Cemetery is in C row easily distinguishable because the major monument has tall maple trees growing on each side of it

  • Copy of gravestone sent by Scott Brandon gives 1878 (rather than 1879) as birth year, and has the "Sarah O. Wright" version of the name... leading weight again to Sarah Olive rather than Olive Sarah. There are sources that use both. One of the emails from Ruth Marilyn Brandon forwarding a picture labeled by D. David Brandon using "Olive Sarah" tipped me previously to use Olive Sarah, but I have several pictures of the gravestone showing "Sarah Olive". Should the gravestone be considered the most accurate source and the name flipped again? I won't yet, but will consider it again.
  • OK, as of 22-Dec-2021 changing everything on this wiki to Sarah Olive rather than Olive Sarah.
