and LUNGREN, FISH, AVERY, others

Mary Clinton WRIGHT (d. 1919) was born in Philadelphia, probably in May 1852, to printer Asher Miner WRIGHT and his wife Hannah Elizabeth LUNGREN. Hannah ran a boardinghouse (at 13th and Arch, now a very expensive parking lot!), and later a hotel with her daughters Ella Virginia WRIGHT and Mary, by then the widow of Henry Mark THORNHILL.
