HAS ANYONE figured out the names of Ludwig Lightner's daughters, or for that matter all his sons? I have an ELIZABETH LIGHTNER, b. 1815, in Pa, married HENRY CRITZ 1834 in Stark Co. HENRY CRITZ was from TUSC. so close by. ELIZABETH seemingly "sprang from nowhere" in that we CANNOT find parents for her. LUDWIG seems to be the only prospect that is the correct age in the area. The only other clue for a name in the group is PAUL LEITNER, b. 1821, PA, who, in 1866 witnessed a guardianship paper for his niece, we presume, SARAH CRITES CONE, the daughter of ELIZABETH LIGHTNER and HENRY CRITES, and he seems to be of an age to be an uncle,brother of ELIZABETH LIGHTNER. In 1860, he was in Ill. and he died in Iowa, but still haven't found HIS parents either, nor anything else about HIS ancestry.
IF ANYONE knows of this family, or IF they belong to LUDWIG LIGHTNER, please respond. This has been a multi-generational search, but 50 yrs later, nowhere!

Thanks all
