Looking for the family of Elizabeth Jane Wright

Born 14 October 1868 England
Married 7 October 1889, Wilkinsburg. PA. to Christopher Fell Porteous.
Daughter of Joseph Wright of Wallace Street, Wilkinsburg. PA.
(Mother possibly Martha).
Unable to find Wright family on FindMyPast passenger lists.
Hoping there will be USA census entries for the Wright family which will provide details of other family
