family of Wellington Lightner in Ohio

I am trying to gather more information regarding the family of Wellington and Lillian (Minks) Lightner [or Leitner], who in the early 1900's is living in Wooster Ohio. Wellington was a shoe maker at one time, and later a shoe salesman. Their only child I have found was Lewis Blair Lightner, who married Ethel [Edith] Karns, and they had two children, James Blair Lightner and Thelma D. Lightner. It seems that this is the same James Lightner who died 12 Feb 2001 and was buried in Ashland Cemetery in Ashland, Ohio. I am willing to correspond and share information, as I think I have connected this family to Johann Adam and Magdalena [Maud] Leitner, Palatine immigrants in 1710 (as discussed in several threads in the Leitner forum).
