Query about Wright family - Please help!

Posted: 1452651540000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Wright, Brown, Johnson
I've been trying to find out more about Martha W. Wright for several years now, and have hit a dead end.
She was born around 1833 in Cumberland County and at one point lived in the Marrowbone community.
She is the daughter of William Lewis Wright (1795-1864) and Margaret Brown (1793-1860).
The census records I have found that state that she has three children, Delilah L. C. Johnson (b. ~1858), Siotha or Cytha (b. ~1864), and Elmer (born in 1873 in Tompkinsville, Monroe Co., Ky).
I would like to find out about the father(s) of these children. The census lists Martha as a widow, but family lore says that she actually never married. Could the father of at least Delilah be a Johnson, hence her last name?
Elmer is my gggrandfather and I would like to trace his line back farther. Thanks for any help you can give!
