The Wrights and the Denios were related by marriage. According to one of the obituaries, the first Ebenezer Wright settled in the Rome, NY, area in 1789, then 47 years of age. He had been a Lieutenant Colonel in the continental army during the Revolutionary War and settled near Fort Stanwix in Rome, then still inhabited by Indians. Their homestead was said to be the first permanent log cabin dwelling erected in the area after the Revolution.
