1795-1847


Born at Amherst, Mass., Silas Wright came to Weybridge as an infant and grew up here. Graduated from Middlebury College in 1815, he studied Law at Sandy Hill, N.Y.; began Law practice at Canton, N.Y. in 1819, and entered politics there. A Brigadier General by 1824, he was State Senator, 1825-1827; U.S. Congressman, 1827-29; Comptroller, 1829-33; U.S. Senator, 1833-44; and Governor of New York, 1845-47. In 1844, General Wright had declined the Democratic Party nomination for U.S. Vice-President.
The large marble monument was erected in 1848 by citizens of Weybridge and vicinity, which General Wright always regarded as his natal place.
