    Simeon Wright served as Captain in the Revolutionary war from 1778 - 1780. His service in the Revolution is noted in "Vermont Revolutionary War Rolls" (Goodrich, 1904). After serving in Simeon Wright's company of Colonel Gideon Warren's Regiment of the Vermont Militia, he moved from Rutland sometime after 1780 to join several of his children in Canada.

    His wife later filed a claim on Simeon's behalf, as a loyalist. This claim was denied because it was filed too late.

    "A payroll of Capt. Simeon Wright's Company of Militia in Col. Gideon Warren's Regiment for a scout to the Lake against Crownpoint and then to Ticonderoga the last of March , in the year 1780: Capt. Simeon Wright, Sergt. Elisha Wright, Simeon Wright, Jr., Zenas Ross, Waight Wright, Abel Wright," etc. found on pages 154-155.

    "A payroll of Capt. Nathl. Blanchard's Company of Militia in Col. Ebenezer Allen's Regiment in the State of Vermont, for an alarm commencing the 12th of October, 1780, and ending the 12th Nov. following:

    Wright," etc. found on pages 300-301.

    ~Capt. Simeon WRIGHT was of the 3rd Regiment, 5th Company, Rutland, VT.

    Source is book "Rolls of Vermont Soldiers in the REVOLUTIONARY WAR 1775-1783", prepared and published under the direction of Major General Martha T. Rainville, The Adjutant General, Vermont, Camp Johnson, Colchester, Vermont, 1998, Volumes I and II.

    I'm trying to find out Zenas Ross' marriage, birth dates and locations so I can possibly continue back to Scotland.
    Simeon WRIGHT (father) and sons
    Simeon and Wait were in the Rutland area. Rachel Wright had married a John Holcombe Sr. and had 2 or more children by him. Holcombe was killed during the unrest/fighting prior to the beginning of the Revolution in 1775. Rachel then married Zenas Ross. I think Simeon Sr. or Jr. was a Captain in the Rev war, all of the Wrights and Rosses were Patriots until Vermont went neutral from New Hampshire & New York. At this time the Wrights and Rosses changed sides sometime around 1781/82 for the British land grants then after the Revolution migrated to Canada in 1783 to Sorrel, Quebec then to Ontario for Crown land grants.
