     Edith Morgan was born in 1763, daughter of Reuben Morgan, in Brunswick County, Virginia Colony. I do not believe she had the middle name of Wright. I believe this to have been added by later family historians.4

     Edith Morgan and Williamson M. Rainey obtained a marriage bond on 23 November 1779 at Mecklenburg County, Virginia, with Francis Rainey, father of the groom, as security.5,6,3 Reuben Morgan, father of the bride, gave consent to the marriage on 23 November 1779 which indicated she was under the age of 21 on this date.1,3

     On 14 June 1781, she is named Edith Rainey in her father's will of this date.2

     In 1844, Edith is still living because she is listed as a member of the Sardis Methodist Church in a registry of this year.7

     Edith Rainey died before 8 January 1846 because her husband did not mention her in his will of this date.

     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 5 Feb 2019.8

     Thomas Moseley married Mary Rives, daughter of Richard Bullard Rives. There is a marriage record for a Thos W H Mosley for a marriage with Mary Ann Beckner in 1839 in Nicholas County, Kentucky. This is the only record I have found for a man by his name in Kentucky. I also cannot find this marriage anywhere else as of 11 Jan 2021.1,2

     Nor can I find a death record for him in Kentucky.
