Euphemia Wright married William Arnot, son of James Arnot and Ann Hunter, on 4 September 1891 at In Abby Parish manse, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.3

Euphemia Wright appeared on the Scotland census of 1901 in the household of William Arnot at Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.4

In a newspaper article printed around 1949:

A Descendant for Every Year - and One Over
     A few miles outside Dunfermline the little village of Cowkhall houses a lady with an unusual record. She is Mrs E. Arnott, Woodside Cottage, and she has what must be at least a local record in the number of direct descendants.

     Seventy-seven-year-old Mrs. Arnott has one descendant for every year she has lived and an extra one for good measure. They include 43 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.

     Of her own family of 17 there are 14 (10 sons and four daughters) still alive. With the exception of her oldest son, Jim, in America, and a daughter in Manchester, none has strayed far from Cowkhall. Her other three daughters are in Rumblingwell, Saline, and Lochgelly. Sons are at Tullibody, Amulree, Hillend, two at Oakley and four in Cowkhall. All but one of her sons are married.

     Last time the family was gathered together at Woodside Cottage was shortly after the New Year, when Mrs. Arnott was ill. Only absent was Jim, who couldn't manage to get a passage from America.

     A native of Colton ____, near Wellwood, Mrs. Arnott has been a widow for 20 years.5

Euphemia Wright died circa 1950 at Gowkhall Via, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.6,7 and was buried at Saline, Fife, Scotland.7
