You seem to have a lot of important information. Perhaps
you can provide me with some additional information from
the family bible in your possession. My g.g.grandfather,
John Lightner (b. 1832) was apparently the brother of
your husband's g.g.grandfather, David (b. 1836). John
married Sara Elizabeth Long and had 5 children (Nancy
Jane, Benjamin Franklin, Laura May, David James and Suzanna
Frances). John was said to have died while in the Union
army. Does your bible have any record of that? Or a more exact birth-date or death date for this John Lightner?
John apparently named his son David James (my g. grandfather, b. 7-31-1856, d. 11-29-1943) after his brother, David. Does your bible list Kathleen as a sister
of John and David? (From your other posted messages, I
picked up the names of their siblings: Samuel C., Matthew G.
Thomas G., Anna (Nan?), Mary, Benjamin Jr. and James.
