- 1915, Thursday, July 15 "Mr. Earl N. Findley, of N.Y. Tribune and Mr. Jus. R. McMahon came home with Orville, on morning train. They dined with us."
- Saturday, July 24 "Earl Findley and John McMahon have been with us since the 15th.
- Monday, July 26 "Orville went to New York. In the evening, Katharine and Mr. Findley and Mr. McMahon went to Lorin's, and came home at 9:25."
The ink drawing shows States of Oregon, Iowa, Indiana, and Ohio, with hometowns indicated of Wright residences. Notes in pencil are by another hand, and indicate names and dates. On the reverse side of this document, a Family Tree provides information of Wright genealogy with notes by John McMahon as he refers to sections of his book. The paper watermark reads "Flexo Loose Leaf Ledger".

|Reverse side of map drawn by Lorin Wright shows Wright Family Tree. The Family Tree information was likely written by John McMahon sometime between 1926 to early 1929 in preparation for his book. It doesn't list Reuchlin's date of death. McMahon's book also does not list Reuchlin's date of death. Reuchlin died in 1920, and McMahon would not have had access to the family for information after 1915. Katharine's death date of 1929 was added later (ink is different). Ink of marriage to Henry Haskell in 1926 is same as ink for Katharine's birth date, so again, evidence that McMahon wrote this Family Tree information between 1926 and early 1929.|
