Little did I know that today in 2014, I would be celebrating a century of dedicated service from Wright Funeral Home without my father, the late Isaac N. Wright, Jr. He was a true Renaissance man, and consummate story-teller—often telling me of our history. My great-great grandfather, Austin Wylie, was driving a stagecoach into York County, South Carolina from Virginia when he drove into Historic Brattonsville. There he met my great-great grandmother, Alice Bratton, who wanted to leave the slave plantation. She did leave with him, and when she returned to South Carolina, they settled in Yorkville (present day York, SC).
